Well I would rather have that than some of the fake stuff portrayed on reality shows as real. Wine and Spirits is a good example. Not saying what
they experience is not real but it surely has staged events whether the investigators know it or not I'm not sure.
As for advances there actually have been many advances. Not sure whether these devices truly work or not I can't say unless I had some to test.
I already debunked one device used on the original ghost hunters series. They at one point had a EMF detector some guy invented that lights lit up
A lot of people asked if it was manipulated somehow. So I bought one from the guy who made it. Turns out you can manipulate the lights to flash very
easily by reducing thumb pressure on the button that is held down to activate it because there is a light test mode that lights it up that is
activated by a very very slight pressure change so much so you can't even see your thumb move.
So I posted the exact results up on the ghost hunter message board so now they jam a quarter in it to hold it down. Problem is the quarter moves even
less than a millimeter it will cause the test light to be activated for a split second. At least the one I own that is what it does.
Ghost Hunters uses the same things over and over again so they are no where near up to date on the "fringe science" of devices available.
New stuff I've seen or old stuff they never seem to do are:
1. the electromagnetic head piece that places some type of field around your head. If this is actually an EMF field then that device needs to be
scrapped because EMF fields interfere with brain activity and cause hallucinations and such. So not sure I even want to mess with that.
2. the hand held monitor that translates energy into words. Supposedly if you use this and the "spirit" learns how to manipulate the energy the
computer will say the word out loud and show it on a night vision set of goggles that are also attached to it. It's a pretty cool device being as
small as it is but again not sure how it works or if it's all coincidence yet sense I don't have one yet.
3. I have yet to see them attempt the video camera TV trick that supposedly you point the camera at the tv's snowy image and supposedly spirits can
manipulate it to appear in the snowy image. This one I've played with and have seen done but for the most part nothing really seems to come out of
it although a lot of different movies have been made off this old idea so many people just assume it was from some idiot watching a horror show that
came up with it but in fact it's the exact opposite.
4. I told a friend of mine we needed to make a battery pack. Reason being power many times is drained from full batteries and is claimed that
spirits may be trying to use that to manifest themselves. I said just get a trunk load of car batteries set up a camera, a volt meter and see what
happens. She told me there is already a device invented specifically for it and sure enough there is. Problem is the device is drained of power
sometimes but no manifestations appear so I like my idea better lol.
5. Of course they could go real old school and try the ping pong balls and red lights but that just doesn't seem to hold any water from a scientific
stand point in my mind.
6. I'm surprised they haven't tried to mess with a ghost box yet it's cheap if you can find the parts to make it.
I've actually discussed with a friend of mine on how to trap a spirit if they are indeed spirits and just not some natural thing occurring we have
yet to understand.
My idea was to produce some type of field that would absorb EMF's into an enclosed container/field and keep them inside the container/field.
For example similar to taking a magnet with 2 poles (north and south) and having one magnet on the outside that only has one pole (say south only).
The negative pole on the container would attract the positive pole on the outside magnet, when that magnet flew into the container/field it would them
be exposed to a positive pole and because the magnet that entered the container is only a one sided pole it would then be repelled by the walls of the
container and be stuck in the center unable to move.
The problem is this, if there is such a thing as a spirit in what we define as a spirit and every single person has a spirit the device could in
theory rip a persons spirit out of their body and trap it within this field. Um this would be bad lol.
Like other have said it's the Sci-Fi channel and they have messed with peoples work in the past making it their own and destroying the original idea.
Every business is out to make money by spending as little as possible so no big surprise they don't go after and test out more of the "fringe
science" stuff today. It's there you just have to look for it.
