This project aimed to establish a way for capturing and simulating motor behavior in dreams. The presentation on this project consist a demonstration of an iPad avatar animation. It was created out from real data of a sleeping participant. They also thought that their set up will reflect the movements of the participant’s dreaming body.
A lot of research on dream subject was able to establish that body movements in dreams are connected with real signals in the muscles of the sleeping body. The signals are those that appear in the same muscles that are involved in the dream behavior.
