In May, I wrote about a cell phone accessory that doubles as a ghost detector. I have another little gadget for you. The Ghost Radar is a Japanese device that detects paranormal energies and contains a USB flash memory.
How it works is similar to the Ghost Detector. It beeps in rhythm which increases depending on how close the ghost is and the lights help you determine the ghost’s position, the ghost’s movement, and the risk possibilities. Basically, it responds to unusual magnetic waves with audible alerts and flashing red lights. Plus, the Ghost Radar and a small silver adhesive label have been purified at a Shinto shrine to help bring good fortune and keep evil spirits in check.
The device is quite complex, with an array of sensors and alert lights, as well as a very complex algorithm for detecting the paranormal which analyzes the sensor data, factors in biometric feedback from your skin, makes lunar-cycle adjustments and many other things. And that's not all!
It's USB flash memory isn't used for recording unusual paranormal activity. Instead, the Ghost Radar has a storage device for your documents, photos, I-tunes and movies. It can also improve the general performance of Windows Vista with a feature called ReadyBoost which allows Vista to use the flash memory as extra system RAM.
I'll admit that the Ghost Radar is a step up from the Ghost Detector. However, I don't think it's a piece of equipment that professional paranormal investigators should be using. The company that developed this device Solid Alliance and GRX doesn't guarantee it detects ghosts or even acknowledges they exist. This may be a cool little toy to play around with in a hotel or whatever, but if you are a professional, stick with the EMF detectors.
