Awesome or Off-Putting is a weekly delve into cryptozoology, ufology, aliens, medical marvels, scientific wonders, secret societies, government conspiracies, cults, ghosts, EVPs, myths, ancient artifacts, religion, strange facts, odd sightings or just the plain unexplainable.
When you’re alone at night typing away on your computer, do you ever get the feeling that the ghost of the old lady who drowned in your bathtub two months before you moved in just wants you out? Are you ever awakened at night feeling pretty sure something is watching you from the depths of your closet – just behind your corduroy sports jacket?
Do you ever wonder if you’re crazy for wondering such things, and would you like some evidence of it that you can print out in a spreadsheet format? Well we’ve got news you may just like – technology exists that can pretty much count the entities in your house. And for a minimal fee plus shipping and handling you can find out once and for all.
GhostRadar is super fancy technological equipment that, had it been around in the 80s, would have allowed us all to laugh at how primitive the Ghostbusters’ equipment really looked. It doesn’t let you catch ghosts, mind you, but it does tell you when they are present.
And if you believe absolute, concrete ghost-sensing ability could never be put within reach of science alone, don’t worry – each unit somehow gets blessed at a Shinto shrine. This, as far as we can tell, means spirits will somehow help your technology seek out ghosts. Sounds traitorous.
But enough from us. Here’s what it says right on the GhostRadar website:
“The ghosts may be behind you, watching everything you do. Or all around you, waiting, or trapped in an afterlife, or lost in a twist of time. Are they friendly, seeking a connection. Or are they just hungry. Well, whatever their intentions, 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…
“GhostRadar has been developed by Solid Alliance and GRX, a virtual organisation that investigates energy fields and the paranormal. However, using technology to detect ghosts is an emerging expertise: there’s a lot to learn…”
Well that’s all well and good – but does it work? We have no idea. We’ve searched high and low for customer reviews and haven’t been able to find a single one. Perhaps that is because nobody has purchased one yet. Would you like to be first to do so? Then skip on over to their online store and make it happen.
But first you should think about it – if it does work, and you find out Abraham Lincoln has been in the shower every morning with you since you moved into your crusty, broken down apartment, is it really gonna make you feel any better once all doubt is removed?
We thought it would. This product was practically made for you.
