A new startup is developing a device to allow you to lucidly dream and be productive even in a dream, Fortune and ScienceAlert reported.
Lucid dreaming is a state in which you are aware that you are dreaming and are controlling or manipulating the dream narrative. 70% of people experience the phenomenon at least once in their lives. Its periodicity is extremely rare.
Prophetic, founded earlier this year, designed a smart hat called Halo.
People spend about a third of their lives sleeping. Prophetic and the company's investors want to capitalize on this "lost time." For example, software developers could code in their dreams, Fortune writes.
Prophetic collaborated with Afshin Mehin, the designer of the Neuralink N1 brain implant for Elon Musk's company.

According to Prophetic's website, the device uses a combination of ultrasound and machine learning models created using EEG & fMRI data to detect when users are in REM to trigger and stabilize lucid dreams.
Closed tests of the device will start in just a few months. The goal is for the product to be on the market in 2025. The price of a smart Halo hat will be between $ 1500,2000 and $ <>,<>.
The product is based on ongoing research from the Donders Institute in the Netherlands, which targets specific brain areas and ultrasound frequencies for optimal induction of lucid sleep.
The company has already attracted serious investments from venture capital funds. Prophetic has also generated hundreds of thousands of dollars in bookings for its upcoming product.
