The INSPEC can now look for faces and only looks for eye movements within the area of a face, nuking a whole host of false positives from sleep artifacts like breathing. Sleep talking still gets past it – too shy to post a clip of that, but I figure if you are sleep talking there is a good chance you are dreaming and the inhibition of motor neurons from REM atonia just isn’t working around the mouth muscles.

The video above shows some eye movements at 4 am with the algorithm looking for a face multiple times a second. In order for the facial algorithm to work, I have to bend the “neck” of the device so it can see my face in portrait mode. The flexible tripod works perfectly for that.
I sometimes feel guilty about how hard the INSPEC has to work all night, but I am making it in hope of spreading lucidity, so at least it is for a worthy cause.
