Lucid Dreaming Created by Virtual Reality Technology


We know that dreams are different from reality. When you dream, we are limited in what we can do, unless we are able to achieve "lucid dreaming". lucid dreaming is not always possible, and it is difficult to achieve this state. Therefore, this paper attempts to use virtual reality technology and specific events to create lucid dreaming, try to circumvent the myriad of hazards and the pharmacological hallucination, experience completely immersive, real and convincing virtual reality (VR), and explore the relationship between virtual reality and lucid dreaming. This is a virtual reality experience space "worry-free space" designed by 57 college students majoring in landscape architecture through their understanding of "what is happiness" and the questionnaire which they completed. The virtual reality experience includes the independent tour of the virtual space, the independent selection of scenes, and the control of non-realistic interactive scenes in an awake state, so as to achieve the dream effect of realizing a lucid dreaming. After experience feedback, not all virtual spaces can play a positive role, but from the perspective of experience effect, virtual reality technology can become a good means of intervention. Virtual reality technology may replace lucid dreaming, which can be verified from the behavior and satisfaction of the experimenter, but the potential mechanisms behind virtual reality technology, such as synthetic lucid dreaming like experience, customized virtual reality scene design, interaction mode design, etc., especially virtual reality technology is more aggressive in intervening in dreams.
