Halo is a head-worn device that can bring about a lucid dream state, meaning people are aware they are dreaming and can control the dream content.

According to Prophetic's introduction, Halo can turn dreams into a virtual workplace so people can do everything they want from practicing, creating, to discovering new abilities. People can use dreams to 'transform' into executives, athletes, singers.

Prophetic founder and CEO Eric Wollberg said Halo's only limitation is its imagination.

Halo is not the first device to stimulate lucid dreaming, but it works differently and effectively because it uses a focused ultrasound beam to stimulate a specific area of ​​the brain responsible for decision-making and consciousness. , thereby creating clarity.

Prophetic collaborated with Card79 – the company that designs and manufactures hardware for Elon Musk's brain-computer interface company Neuralink to develop Halo.

According to them, lucid dreams not only help solve specific problems but also help find creative new ways to approach topics that you couldn't think of while awake.

However, Antonio Zadra, a professor of psychology at the University of Montreal, an expert on sleep and dream activity, said that creating lucid dreams is not simple, controlling dreams is even more difficult, requiring a lot of practice. practice and skills.

Based on research conducted by the Donders Institute, a brain research center in the Netherlands, Halo determines which specific brain areas to target and the frequency of ultrasound waves to stimulate lucid dreaming. The company hopes to receive this data by spring 2024 and deliver devices to buyers by spring 2025.

The company opened the device ordering system and achieved revenue of several hundred thousand dollars in the first few weeks.
