One of the first mind machines ever sold commercially, this metal strobe box weighs in at a substantial 15 pounds – a bit heavier than the LED entrainment glasses used today.

One of the first commercially available mind machines came some time later in the late 1950’s. Its construction was inspired by reports from radar operators aboard submarines, who found themselves falling into deep, relaxed, trance-like states after staring at flickering radar screens for extended periods. Dr. Sidney Schneider was one of the researchers to analyze these effects, and he went on to create the “Brain Wave Synchronizer”.

Hmmmm . . . must . . . re . . make.

    Gysin and Summerville predated this device by a few years with their mechanically strobed ‘Dreammachine’, which was inspired by research taken from “The Living Brain”, authored by the amazing Dr. W. Grey Walter.

    Besides his work as a cerebral cartographer, W. Grey was definitely a Maker… his ‘Machina Speculatrix’ were autonomous robots with tube circuitry A.I.s.

    FWIW, a slightly refined version of the original Dreammachine is one of the projects I documented in Eccentric Cubicle. It does wot it sez on the packet, as it were.
