Artistic usage

Musicians, artists,  writers or other  creative people could benefit from using sleep communication. For example, artists could place themselves in a very special dream scenery (e.g., sitting on Mount Everest) and  create wake world art by messaging their painting movements via  an advanced  brain-computer interface  to the wake world, where it controls a prosthesis with a real paintbrush. Another exemplary future  use  illustration  could be a musician,
being a fish with human hands within his dream, expressing his fish feelings and emotions in a “fish song”, which is transferred to the wake world using sleep communication with a very fine-tuned hand muscle EMG as body signal, which again controls a musical instrument.

The  exemplary  future  prospects  seem quite spectacular, and many more of these future prospects can be thought of. However,  sleep communication has to be further improved in order to  make these prospects possible. Especially,  there is more research needed on which stimuli, body signals, and message coding schemes can  improve sleep communication the best. Furthermore, more reliable methods have to be developed to induce lucid dreams.

You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality. (Walt Disney)
