Count Me In: $20 Electromagnetic Field Detector iPhone Plug-In (FOR GHOST HUNTING)

This is Mr. Ghost, an electromagnetic field (EMF) detector that can show you how much radiation your electronics are spewing out. It plugs into the headphone jack of your iPhone and comes with an app that shows you how much radiation is being emitted, and the direction its coming from. Ghosts, as I'm sure you learned on some crappy supernatural reality show, allegedly emit electromagnetic fields, so it can also be used for ghost hunting. "What about lion hunting?" Oh most definitely! (I never liked you anyways)

Hit the jump for a picture of the electromagnetic field a flatscreen TV creates and a video about Mr. Ghost.

Thanks to Aaron, the man behind Mr. Ghost, who informed me it also triples as a dork detector if you hold it up to one of your friends and make beep beep beep noises.

    How did I know this was going to be a "kickstarter" fantasy.

    I didn't even notice Mr. Ghost...the cello caught my eye first.

    My Droid has three axes of Hall-effect sensors (probably as part of the internal compass). It's possible to access these and use them much to the same end as this here.

    We put a 3.5mm jack into a piece of wood and made a goofy app for ios and android for all your moronic pleasures!

    emf detectors are good for more than "ghost hunting" and if this thing actually works its awesome and i want one

    seems to me like they want to appeal to the largest audience possible and that means marketing to retards who will use it to look for ghosts people who will buy it as a joke gift and people who will use it for what it is and dont really care how they try to market it

    there's nothing wrong with an iphone EMF meter...but sticking an antenna in the headphone jack is never going to work.

    I ain't afraid of no EMF.
