Dream Reorder debuts
Frederic Descamps has released Dream Recorder, a sleep monitoring tool that detects body motions with night vision processing that is powered by the iSight. The program is fitted with a statistics section keeping records, nights after nights, for many parameters. The tool can also be used to aid in recollecting your dreams: you can select a sound to gently wake you up, just after a dream, and then record the experience before memory fades. The light source for the program is the screen backlight, which is automatically switched on and off at the appropriate times. The author says the tool is designed for use by sleepy individuals. "All features are easily accessible from the main panel. Colors are dark on purpose. All panels and buttons have smooth appearance, with light but distinct sounds. Minimal clicking as a rule." Dream Recorder is priced at $45.
