Our dog woke me up from a dream at 03:30 while barking at something in the trees. I was only able to get back to sleep 2 hours later after a shower. But totally worthwhile as I had a marathon dream session with over a dozen notifications. Most of them went unnoticed as the volume was very low, but in the minute above the effect can clearly be seen. I was able to remain still and re-enter the dream with full lucidity and control.

I was able to sleep in and catch another session a bit later when the sun was already up.

2022-02-24 – INSPEC Video Feed

Lucid Scribe can now tap into the video feed from the INSPEC camera if it is plugged in via USB, which will allow for parallel tests against the algorithm on the device’s firmware. Recorded 3 positives and 0 false positives with audio on mute for testing.

I added a new channel that shows when the vREM channel is disabled because large movements have been detected. The minimum and maximum values that define eye movements are now also configurable.

Captured a good REM session starting at 0545.

And here the Toss threshold was reached from eye brow movements during a dream. An extra configuration for the amount of movements above the toss threshold within a timeframe could fix that.

I used the following settings and had only one false positive while settling down to sleep:

Eye Movements Dream
The audio track played after six blinks and the wave can be seen at the end again, as previously noted: 2012-06-14 – Aware-Wave.

Audio Tracks During REM Sleep
Four tracks played within six minutes: two of the tracks can be seen in the featured minute and I distinctly remember when the second one played. The rush from knowing that the world around me was a dream can clearly be seen in the seconds that followed. I tried to control my eye movements for the first time, but the effect I was hoping for did not make it across.

Another track played in the morning and woke me up during REM sleep, feeling very refreshed.

Preparation: chewed a few calea leaves.

Rapid Eye Movement Dream

Six blinks can be seen before the audio track played, but I couldn’t contain myself and woke up. The latest version of Lucid Scribe now shows which track was played and makes navigating to the detected REM periods easier.
