PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - On today’s APP-tastic and outta SITE – Sigmund.

The idea of programming your dreams might sound a bit out there, but a Harvard PhD student is betting it can be done. The Sigmund app is a result of that work.

How it works is you choose one to five words and the app will read those as you enter the REM cycle of sleep – which is when you dream. You’ll have to be the judge of if it works, but a sleep study that was the basis for the app boasted success rates of up to 40 percent.

Check out the Sigmund app.
