The dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.

Tech startup Prophetic recently created an AI headband called Halo that they say allows wearers to control their dreams.

The company claimed that the Halo device, which is powered by an AI model called Morpheus-1, can induce lucid dreams, a type of dream in which the dreamer knows they are asleep. 

“In a lucid dream, the dreamer can control the dreamworld, dream narrative, speak to dream characters, and much more,” Phrophetic’s website reads.

The company has opened registration for beta users to test out its product — particularly those who have been in lucid dream studies, Business Insider reported.

“We are looking for those who have been successful participants in lucid dream studies to help us build the world’s largest EEG dataset on lucid dreams. Every dreamer will be given a Z-Max headset and access to our app to upload data for model training purposes,” Phrophetric’s website explained.

The company said that the Halo will detect when the wearer has reached a REM state and then send signals to the brain to make them dream.

REM is a deep sleep state where dreams typically happen, according to WebMD.


The device is priced at an estimated $2,000.

Those who wish to order a Halo can reserve a headset by putting down a refundable $100 deposit. The device will have an estimated price tag of $2,000.

The first 1,000 people to make a deposit will get a free year of using the app. 

Those who reserve a Halo can expect a shipment sometime in the winter of 2025.
