Imagine if I told you that there was an app for your iPhone that could directly influence what you dream about. Well…that app is now a reality, and it’s name is Sigmund. Creeped out yet?

Sigmund, which was developed by grad students from Harvard and MIT, attempts to influence your dreams by “whispering” different subjects, chosen by you, the dreamer, while you’re in the deepest stages of slumber. The app itself features over 1,000 different words, from people, to places, to events such as sports.

iPhone users, and fans of Apple products in general, are usually very receptive to technological innovations. But thus far, dreams are uncharted territory. Does Sigmund cross a line?

What do you think? Is this app a step too far and just plain creepy, or is the exploration of dreams the next foray into the unknown?
