I will write for about 15 minutes about what I notice in this very interesting engineering job.

Sleepy Mouse

One of the main challenges we currently face is how to identify a mouse waking up from anesthesia. Apparently, if the mouse is within the effects of anesthesia, and you turn it upside down, it will remain upside down. If within 10minutes the mouse is not back from it (the anesthesia), then the mouse will remain in the same “dead-bug” position.

First, we need a motor mechanism to turn the mouse inside a small pressurized chamber. Once in there, we are currently exploring 2 options:

  • Accelerometer and Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLTE).
  • Ink and a visual color sensor.

We are currently experimenting and will share the final results in a few weeks.
