About the Project

Two years ago, we launched our first project here on kickstarter. Thanks to your support, we were able to successfully fund DreamMe and deliver it to more than 850 backers. With all the experiences gained and many new ideas from the community, we would like to present our new project: DreamMe ORBIT DreamMe ORBIT is the first „sleep and relaxation aid in one“ which uses your mobile phone as a projector. Helps you to relax and fall asleep faster. Furthermore, it turns your smartphone or tablet into a pocket planetarium. Relax by watching planets on your ceiling.

Reality Check

  • Claim:

    DreamMe ORBIT supports you and helps you intuitively bring your breathing into the right relaxing balance.

  • Reality:

    DreamMe is a device that has already raised the funds necessary, in a previous campaign, to be created and is also readily available for purchase on the Dreamme website seen here: https://www.dreamme.de/eshop/en/DreamMe/
    This campaign is not to introduce the new hardware to the world, but instead, take an existing product and add an element to the software. It seems that the app itself in previous versions was rudimentary and needed some further development that can be observed through previous backers here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/675453850/dreamme-is-the-new-compan...

  • Claim:

    Metabolism slow down

  • Reality:

    Slowing down metabolism is an aggressive claim that introduces certain questions. Lights leading metabolism down a path of slowing is bold that remains to be a proven function of the DreamMe.

  • Claim:

    Disconnect thoughts/To fall asleep faster

  • Reality:

    As with most education and mediation focused devices, the DreamMe relies on the ability and commitment of the end user to function completely. With this, if DreamMe is used appropriately it does allow the possibility of the claimed elements in order for the end user to be geared for sleeping.

  • Claim:

    You can customize the DreamMe ORBIT APP to your personal liking.

  • Reality:

    The app that is currently available and was used for the previous release of the DreamMe had many elements that caused difficulties for the end user. The app appeared to not fully be developed, even with progressive updates.

  • Claim:

    DreamMe ORBIT your pocket planetarium

  • Reality:

    The previous release of the DreamMe was the same model as what is being released in this campaign. The added software to the existing hardware can produce a light on a ceiling or surface, but with understandable limitations. Do not expect this to use a phones screen to produce high visibility in environments that are not fully dark.

Bottom Line

DreamMe ORBIT is a lens that uses a mobile device screen to project images onto the ceiling. The design adds up with the ability to function properly, yet the software is the real point of possible concern. A previous campaign of the same device led to the backers having difficulty with a very limited app. Consider the limitations of a lens' ability to project on the ceiling in a room that is not completely dark. Also, be aware of the necessity of the end user to be committed to the projected sleep aid, in order for it to work appropriately
