Advertising in a dream

Sleeping process and dreams will finally be studied deep enough to enable complete control over them. Lucid dreaming and programmable dreams are a very handy thing. As you know, people can learn being inside a dream, as well as watch movies, read books, travel to other countries and even worlds - and it doesn’t take much time.

Adware - malware for lucid dreams - will push advertising into dreams, so that people won’t be able to remember viewing it, but the memory from a dream is guaranteed to work out when a person is shopping for a new product.

Narmin I would like to make a comment on one thing you mentioned in this post; you said "...people can learn being inside a dream, as well as watch movies, read books...". Reading a text could never be possible in a dream, because when you are sleeping the part of the brain responsible for logic and intellect shuts down. Actually it is exactly why we can have unrealistic dreams/nightmares such as flying, teleporting, and etc. Actually, it is a bit controversal topic because when it comes to lucid dreams, there is an idea that we can have control over lucid dreams (namely being able to read numbers and letters) even though the intellect and logic part of the brain is inactive. I think before the project of "advertising in a dream", science needs to work on "how to activate the part of the brain responsible for intellect while sleeping or how to have a control over your dream while the intellect part is inactive". For now, to me "advertising in a dream" doesn't seem as an idea can be put into work in near future, namely by 2050 at least, given the fact that we don't have full understanding of even simple dreams.

Mr.Robin Hood Какой смысл вставлять в сны рекламные интеграции если их не будут помнить? Реклама которую никто и никогда не "не видел" не имеет смысла.

Lordlimabean Despite what people here think, this will happen so long as modern style capitalism is in place. It is often said eyes are the gateway to the soul -it's been a staple of modern ads- but it's your own dreams you should fear.

Pinar Demetci This would be like the biggest dream for large companies but an absolute nightmare for people. That's why Im not sure if it would be adopted.

Andrew Plum Well, Andrew, if you want that, and achieve it, you will stop all wars. However, this is not good technology. Hackers can make the people they hate suffer really badly, maybe even drive them insane. It is possible, but difficult. You would have to change the neurons in the brain to move in a completely different direction. This means we need nano-robots, robots capable of going inside the brain and force the brain to show something they don't want. This is not a good technology in these cases. It can be good if you can control where you are going and not let ads get in. No internet, just a simple system that doesn't connect to a network is good. If it is connected to the internet, hackers can get in.

superben100 Although it does sound unpleasant, I believe that this will happen. With the predicted surge of neurotechnology research in the coming decades, dreams very well could become a promising platform for virus makers to begin invading.

Jeremy Weinland Just because we may not like it, doesn't mean it won't happen. Let's just pray it doesn't. I have great dreams, they'd be ruined if they got interrupted by Lowe's Hardware Store.

Yuji Develle Somewhat inevitable. Especially if the technology continues on its current trajectory of commercialism, human discomfort could fall victim to the interests of marketeers.
