Have you ever thought of controlling your dreams?
This has become possible thanks to advancements in AI and neurotechnology. Neurotechnology is the technology that helps us study the brain, including monitoring and visualizations.
Young entrepreneurs Eric Wollberg and Wesley Berry established an AI startup named Prophetic to elevate the field of neurotechnology. Their aim with the startup was to delve into the depths of human consciousness and push its boundaries.
To explore and break the boundaries of human consciousness, Prophetic has developed a device named Halo.
Halo, developed by Prophetic, is an innovative non-invasive neural device designed to enhance and support lucid dreaming. According to Prophetic, Halo is the most advanced neurotechnology device specifically crafted to enable you to explore your imagination and control your lucid dreams. The startup started working on this neural device in 2023, partnering with the company behind Elon Musk’s neural link hardware to create Halo.
The Functioning of Halo
Halo uses AI and ultrasound technology to enable lucid dreaming. Here’s a more detailed explanation of how it works:
EEG data collection
Halo uses EEG (electroencephalography) to monitor brain activity. EEG data is essentially electrical activity data recorded from the scalp. When a person enters REM sleep, the stage of sleep where dreaming occurs, Halo detects the characteristic brainwave patterns associated with REM sleep.
Ultrasound wave stimulation
Once Halo detects REM sleep, it emits low-power ultrasound waves to stimulate targeted areas of the brain associated with consciousness and self-awareness. This stimulation helps nudge the dreamer into becoming lucid within their dream.
Once lucid, the dreamer can then manipulate their dream environment and even their actions within the dream.
Halo has the potential to revolutionize the way we understand and experience dreams. With Halo, we can explore our creativity and imagination in ways that were never before possible. By facing our fears in a safe, dreamlike environment, we can learn to overcome them in the real world.
Lucid dreaming can be a powerful tool for problem-solving. By thinking creatively in our dreams, we can come up with new solutions to waking-life challenges.
Prophetic is planning to release Halo to the public in 2025. The company is currently conducting clinical trials to ensure the safety and efficacy of the device. The founders of the Prophetic are bullish on their plan to work on Halo and make this device lead to breakthroughs with the responsibility of maintaining individual data privacy.
With the support of investors like The Box Group and O’Shaughnessy Ventures, Prophetic continues to advance in its mission.
I am very excited about the potential of Halo. I believe that this technology has the potential to change the way we dream and, in turn, the way we live our lives. However, it is important to use Halo responsibly and ethically. Lucid dreaming can be a powerful tool, but it is important to remember that dreams are not reality. It is important to use Halo for self-exploration and growth, not for escapism or harm.
The future of sleep and dreaming is full of possibilities, and Halo is just one example of the innovative technologies that are being developed.
