Deepaks a real punch

22 11 2014

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.

A DIY eye dream mask idea for use with a web cam, cycle lights and LED sensors.

Basically there are numerous ideas and hacks out there in the public domain for eye masks which attempt to promote lucid dreaming mainly on Instructables or various other electronics-type blogs and forums, including the Kvasar dreammask for example.

My simple do it yourself approach makes use of empty plastic milk cartons and basic electronic components for the hardware. The software is powered by lucidcode.
