I recently came across Michael Paul Coder’s latest FIELD update on Lucidcode which was of great interest to me.
Basically this program is an upgraded version of his mouse control reader program for the LucidScribe platform.
The program, via the algorithm, could now detect the delicate movement picked up by the small camera sensor in the mouse where it would play a short soundtrack after several ‘movements’ over a short period of time.
It would be hoped that the mouse optics could be used as a form of REM eyelid movement or detection method, which might prove useful as a help in regard to lucid dreaming.
It should be noted, hardware wise, that using an optical mouse in this way is not a new idea where the LED is directly replaced with an IR counterpart.
I personally have come across some interesting articles on the Internet and forums…
