My friends at Krugism Development are at it again with another great piece of smartphone technology that can be used by Paranormal Investigators of all varieties. Last time I wrote a review about their execellent application called the Entity Sensor EMF Detector and since then I have put another one of their latest developments to the test. It’s called the Ghost Speaker and it is similar to an Ovilus, Puck, or the PX Device. For those who don’t know, an Ovilus is a device used by Investigators that has a word database within it, it takes readings from the surrounding environment, and spirits are then able to alter the environment in order to pick a word from that database. It is very popular amongst the Ghost Adventure Crew and they have used all different kinds of Ovilus’ and have gotten amazing evidence and relevant responses with this technology. The Ghost Speaker is similar to the Ovilus II designed by Bill Chappell because it shows you the word that the spirit is picking out of the database. In my opinion it is better then most Ovilus’ because it displays all words used during the session until you end the session, and it also displays an energy graph, which uses the phones accelerometer to show how much the device is being moved during the session. The less you move the device the better, because sometimes fast movement of the device will throw off the energy reading and either give you the wrong word or a word that is not from a spiritual source, deeming the evidence inconclusive and defintely not paranormal. With that said, and as long as you keep the phone generally still, you can get some amazing evidence using this. The only negative aspect of the app is the inability to copy and paste a session so you can save the words to go back and look into any relavent responses after your investigation. It would be great if it saved a file with these words like their Entity Sensor Pro Application which records EMF Readings to a file you can later view after an investigation. But the great thing about the application and their developers is that they are always listening to their customers, the Paranormal Investigators in the field, using their equipment and giving them feedback as to what they can change to make it better. I remember the first time I downloaded this application off of the Android Market, I tested it out and found it to be too random and very inconclusive. Ovilus’ generally have this problem, especially when you first start them up, it takes in too much information at first and gives the investigator too many words, but once it settles and gets used to the environment, it starts picking up on spiritual energy and this is where you get your good responses. The first version of the Ghost Speaker seemed like it was having trouble settling into the environment and not working like a real Ovilus. After a few emails back and forth between the developers and myself, they created a new version and the difference was astounding. What made it even better was the fact that Krugism updated the Ghost Speaker Application the following day after we had spoke via email. It shows their desire to get it right and make their customers happy and returning for more. During STD Paranromal’s latest residential investigation we revisted a house in Clifton to further investigate the source of some unkown EVP’s captured in our intial investigation. By using the Ghost Speaker we were able to uncover some things about a previous owner of the house and some possible dark history that goes along with him. We were also able to get some visual evidence while doing the Ghost Speaker session such as light anomalies and orbs further confirming that we were communicating with a spirit. You can watch two videos taken during the Ghost Speaker Session here. We are still in the proccess of doing more historical research, mainly looking at deeds dating back to the 1950’s and also checking on the land before 1918. We will be using the Ghost Speaker more and more on future investigations and will continue to get great evidence because of it. Real time spirit communication is the new craze amongst Paranormal Researchers in the 21st Century. The Ghost Speaker is a great use of this new craze and helps Paranormal Investigators understand what we are dealing with while we are investigating and not after the fact. It is inexpensive, especially compared to Ovilus’ and the PX Device, but yields the same results. All in all another great application created by the guys at Krugism, my only question is…what will they come up with next?
