This was featured on an episode of Ghost Adventures. Saw it last Saturday.
There's a video recap on the site:
A grief-stricken electrical engineer believes he has found a way to communicate with his dead daughter eight years after her death.
Using his expertise to design and build a series of electromagnetic detection devices, Gary Galka claims to have even recorded his eldest daughter Melissa saying, 'Hi Daddy, I love you.'
Devastated by his girl's death in a car accident on her way home in 2004 at the age of 17, Gary and his family claim they started to experience unexplained phenomena at their Connecticut home days after the fatal accident, according to the Hartford Courant.
'She started doing things like ringing the doorbell, changing TV channels, turning lights on and off,' said Gary who runs D.A.S. Distribution Inc. in East Granby and lives with his wife Cindy and two other daughters, Jennifer and Heather.
'There were situations when my wife would start to make lunch with Heather and Jennifer and all of sudden they'd feel someone come into the room.
'I've been lying in bed and felt someone come down on my side of the bed and felt a weight on my chest, like someone's head.
'It evolved into things like feeling a tap on the shoulder, someone calling out our names and it felt like someone was kissing our foreheads.'
Using his knowledge of electromagnetic sensors systems, Gary created the Mel-Meter 8704, named after his daughter, the year she was born and the year that Gary believes she passed into the spirit realm.
The entire family say that they have come into contact with Melissa, even seeing her appear inside their home.
'I've never seen Melissa,' said Gary.
'But my younger daughter Heather has seen her three times.'

Wasn't Edison obsessed with something like this a machine to talk to Ghost? Edison apparently thought it was possible to do this.
I'm not so quick to discount his claims.

It was on ghost adventures first of all, so the story of the daughter is real, not just a marketing campaign. If you designed something useful, I imagine you may try to make some money. Also, they used this And recorded evps, so thats where they got the audio. Most people know that Ghost Adventures would never dirty their hands with something fake or with a made-up story behind it. I've heard of machines that attract ghosts and all kinds of other things, so this is really not very far-fetched, for me.
