Build your own pocket-sized Dreamachine !
Construisez votre dreamachine de poche !
By Kevin Meredith
This is a weekend project I just finished putting together (Friday, May 26, 2006). It's inspired by Brion Gysin's Dreamachine from 1959 which you can read about HERE
I have designed this simple strobing Dreamachine-type circuit that can be built into a small pocket size box. It flashes between 7Hz and 14Hz with a speed control. Attached is the schematic diagram and a picture of my finished prototype. Please feel free to distribute the schematic however you like.
was going to build a proper Dreamachine, but I didn't have room
for it and record turntables at cheap prices are hard to come by
- SO I came up with this little circuit that does
essentially the same thing but in a small project box that you
can fit in your pocket. I call it the
To use the Electro-Hallucinator, just hold it about 5-10cm in front of your closed eyes. The type and intensity of visual artefacts can be changed by moving your head and eyes, etc. just as with the Dreamachine. Experiment !
