Does it aid lucidity?
The short answer:
Yes, but don't expect miracles.
The long answer:
The NovaDreamer can certainly help induce lucidity if the user is willing to put in some effort. Indeed, external light and sound cues can become incorporated into a dream, but whether these will prompt lucidity depends on the user's ability to spot these cues. Therefore, motivation, good dream recall and mental preparation are all required to get the most out of the NovaDreamer, and any lucid dreaming device for that matter.
In a 1995 study published in Dreaming, LaBerge and colleague Lynne Levitan demonstrated the efficacy of using light cues to facilitate lucidity. You can access the article here.
