As paranormal investigators, we use all sorts of equipment to help us communicate with the spirit world. Below are just a few examples of the many pieces of equipment you will come across during an investigation. Photography by William J. Sanger. Descriptions provided by ghoststop.com and boobuddy.com.
“The most important tool for a ghost hunter is the EMF meter. When paranormal activity takes place, theories suggest that electromagnetic anomalies often take place in the environment. This meter allows you to detect these disturbances.
Low-cost, easy-to-use single-axis EMF meter featuring both audio and visual alarms.” (ghoststop.com)
“All in One Paranormal Instrument detects EMF, ambient temperature with a helpful attached red flashlight and EMF radiating antenna. In addition to detecting AC/DC EMF & Temperature changes in the environment, this New feature also uses a mini telescopic antenna to radiate its own independent magnetic Field around the instrument. This EM field can be easily influenced by materials and objects that conduct electricity. Based on source proximity, strength and EM field distortion…(4) red LED lights can be activated in any order or combination. This new feature is intended to further help promote and advance Paranormal research.” (ghoststop.com)
EVP/Digital Voice Recorder
When spirits try to communicate with us, we can’t always hear them with the naked ear. That’s why we use a digital voice recorder to capture the frequencies spirits communicate in. It’s also helpful to have for reference if you DO hear something so you can go back and listen to it again. For examples of EVPs, check out our evidence page!
“The REM Pod uses a mini telescopic antenna to radiate its own independent magnetic field around the instrument. This EM field can be easily influenced by materials and objects that conduct electricity. Based on source proximity, strength and EM field distortion (4) colorful LED lights can be activated in any order or combination. The Rem-Pod is intended to further help promote and advance Paranormal research.” (ghoststop.com)
“K2 Deluxe EMF Meter With On/Off Switch. This K2 meter is a popular easy-to-use tool to detect spikes in electro magnetic energy. These spikes indicated by the multi-colors lights at the top of the meter may signify activity or communication from spirits from the other side.” (ghoststop.com)
BooBuddy Ghost Hunting Interactive Bear
“BooBuddy is not the average bear! BooBuddy is a paranormal investigator like no other. BooBuddy is not just an EMF bear but an interactive investigator that asks smart questions and reacts to changes in the environment just like a real investigator would.” (boobuddy.com)
“ECHOVOX System all-in-one Echo based Real Time EVP recording system from the creator of SpiritVox. EchoVox is a real time amplified recording system used to create a bed of random chaotic noise using random phonetics, microphone input and a natural loop recording echo. Delay time can be set from anywhere to 0-10 seconds. This means what you are hearing is the actual audio being recorded to disk in real time, as it happens.” (Available on iTunes or Google Play)
“It is incredibly easy to use and requires no former experience. It really is a matter of ‘point-shoot-detect’ to obtain high-quality thermal images that will immediately give you the thermal information you need.” (ghoststop.com)
