The Dream Pod is a bed featured in The Sims 3: Into the Future. It can be bought in the Bed section in Buy Mode or the Beds section under Comfort. Unlike other beds, the Dream Pod can change a Sim's life by providing a unique dream, which grants the Sim special effects when they wake up. Sims can gain Advanced Technology skill while they are selecting a dream. Dreams can also be shared with other Sims.
Different dreams provide different need and skill adjustments, depending on the situation.
Sims may have bad, neutral, or good dreams while sleeping in the Dream Pod. If a Sim is having a bad dream, the letter "Z" above their heads will become red, if a dream is neutral, it will become white, and if a dream is good, it will become green.
"Influence dream" is an interaction available when a Sim is dreaming. This affects the type of dream the Sim is having. Players can choose whether the dream is bad or good. If a player selects a good dream option, green smileys will appear above the Sim's head, otherwise bad smileys will appear. It has only 4 sub-options; a pair of good situations and a pair of bad situations.
