Nintendo is ready to turn your dreams into a video game. No... really.

As strange as it might sound to some readers, Nintendo has reportedly filed a patent for a bizarre new device which, according to Forbes contributor Dave Thier, appears to transform sleep into something of a video game.

The device, which comes as part of Nintendo’s “quality of life” initiative, is designed to monitor people in their sleep and it comes equipped with a ceiling projector, IGN reports.

The recently filed patent, which was was reportedly unearthed by a NeoGAF user, offers a glimpse into what the company has planned for the future and it is, without doubt, an odd future at that, as the English part of the patent application, the abstract, indicates that the “portable terminal” will “assess a user’s emotions.”
