Lucid Scribe 1.4.4

Replaced an obscure error message with a note that Windows Media player is required, added a “Maximize Values” option to the context menu of the minute view along with a “Split Stages” option to split stage data into Awake, REM, Light, Deep and Sleep, and flipped the icons for plug-outs.

The latest Lucid Scribe plugin for use with the Wild Divine Lightstone is now available thanks to Michael.

This will give my project more flexibility due to the lower threshold now offered, without having to modify the hardware or increase the LED light output to otherwise gain the extra reflected sensitivity.

This doesn’t make the previous version of the plugin redundant however.

On the contrary, this now gives me the extra option of tailoring the sensor design further should I wish to, including the idea of maybe swapping the photoresistor for a suitable photodiode instead.

The latest Lightstone IOM v0.9.9 plugin is now available from Lucidcode here.

Made sure it doesn’t turn itself back on again a minute after turning itself off.

Lowered the threshold on the IR LED REM channel from 196 down to 156.

This follows on from my previous post about the Wild Divine Lightstone where I have included more detail about the sensors themselves in relation to my DreamJacker mask project.

I have now also utilised a suitable IR led from an old remote control to act as the transmitter in order to reflect the light off my closed eyelid and back on to the photoresistor. This signal is then fed to the Lightstone interface which acts as an analogue to digital converter with hardware connection to my computer via a short usb cable.

Lucidcode do already have a suitable plugin to monitor the heartbeat and GSR (Galvanic Skin Response) by using the standard finger electrodes originally supplied with the Lightstone, including software intended for the later IOM versions.

Mouse FIELD 1.1.2

Added a new channel: Button TCMP, which interprets Morse Code patterns from mouse clicks and forwards them to the keyboard input. A quick click is a dot and anything longer is a dash. It is disabled by default so it needs to be enabled under plugins.

OCZ hack

This makes use of the OCZ NIA (Neural Impulse Activator) advanced biotechnology games interface as an analogue to digital converter, by replacing the headband and just stuffing a small analogue signal in one of the inputs in relation to the reference (centre) connector pin.

This contemplated my DIY motion sensor project where only the RX diode signal is used.
