This is intended as a solution to the problem of how to tell whether someone is sleeping or passed out. Make a speaker on a thin, quiet robotic arm. The speaker should make the sounds of a mosquito. An AI program looks through a camera and determines where the sleeper's highest ear is and positions the speaker near it. If an attempt is made to swat the boom, the person is okay.

       Gram: "higher"   

       Unless, of course, you're referring to the Final Front ear ......
