What is DreamLab?
DreamLab is an app that combines the processing power of smartphones to create a virtual supercomputer that can be used to accelerate scientific research.
Launched in New Zealand in 2018, DreamLab was originally used to aid cancer researchers. And with the help of thousands of users, has already helped to make significant breakthroughs in our understanding of this disease.
With the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic, a new project has been created in the app to help fight coronavirus. Researchers at theImperial College of London are now able to use the DreamLab to better understand the coronavirus and how to combat it.
To use DreamLab, simply download DreamLab from the App or Play store, put your phone on charge and activate the app at bedtime.
If you’re a Vodafone mobile customer you won’t be charged for mobile data used by DreamLab.
