The kinect SLS camera can pick up the disembodied figure of ghosts and display it with a 2d stick figure on screen.

I like your idea. Are you the person that can build that or are you asking someone to build it.

I believe in "ghosts", and have investigated the paranormal for years and experienced things.
Having said that, most of the TV shows are garbage. They'll point to a dust orb or insect and say it's a spirit and generally dumb down the general public.
I'm not sold on the Kinect. It's designed for video games and mapping out players. I think most (if not all) of the extra stick figures you see on TV when this is used are simply the device trying to make sense of the environment to try and map a player. That's what it was designed to do, and having an actual person in frame could easily mess it up and think there's another person.
Add to that the fact that it's sensors are based on shapes and movements. If there WAS a spirit, how could it 'sense' something that is not visible, even under IR or full spectrum cameras? There's nothing magical about these devices
