Prophetic, a startup linked with Elon Musk's Neuralink, is developing a unique device named "Halo" that claims to enable users to work during lucid dreams.

The headband induces lucid dreams by releasing focused pulses of ultrasound waves into the brain, allowing users to be aware that they are dreaming and potentially take control. Prophetic CEO Eric Wollberg envisions users practicing speeches, solving problems, or even visualizing creative projects during these dream states.

Designed by Afshin Mehin, the mind behind Neuralink's N1 brain implant, the Halo headband targets brain regions associated with lucid dreams and decision-making. While some experts express skepticism about the effectiveness of transcranial focused ultrasound (TUS) technology in inducing lucid dreams, Wollberg cites studies suggesting enhanced dream control through brain stimulation.

Despite potential challenges, Prophetic aims to fine-tune the Halo with more data expected in 2025, anticipating a retail price between $1,500 and $2,000.
