Halo: A headset that helps you learn faster

Daniel Chao, Neuroscientist

Neuroscientist Daniel Chao created a headset that hacks your brain with electricity so you can learn as fast as a kid again. It’s called Halo, and right now it can help you learn motor skills (athletes use it; musicians too). But we’re not far from a future when Halo could help anyone master anything. Where could that take us? Host Caterina Fake leads the journey, joined by writer Baratunde Thurston and Quartz editor-in-chief Kevin Delaney, who help Daniel imagine his invention into a future that’s best for humanity.
