To create a smart piece of ghost hunting equipment, you need to start with a computer. Seems obvious enough, right? But obviously said computer has to be small as well. In part one of this installment of DIY ghost gear, we’ll introduce you the Arduino microcontroller platform. In part two, we’ll discuss the Raspberry Pi and Intel Edison.
The maker movement has taken the world by storm. No longer are people content to buy their own gadgets off the shelf, they instead want to make their own or modify other gadgets. If you’re not familiar with Maker culture, here’s a great Wiki article.
This week, SciMinds proudly introduces our first series on do it yourself (DIY) ghost hunting equipment.
Probably my favorite technique I’ve stumbled on for analyzing audio evidence is synchronized, saturated audio. What is it? It’s the practice of recording using as many audio recorders as possible, then synching the audio streams together while reviewing evidence.
What is the Advantage?
How many times have you been investigating a location and heard a strange voice or sound? Was it someone outside the building? Was it paranormal? How can you be sure? The fact is that walls muffle and change sounds.
SciMinds has embraced the maker movement. We feel custom ghost hunting technology should be in reach of anyone who has a desire to create or modify gadgets and who takes the time to learn some basics. We are creating a special page for our DIY ghost hunting gear ideas.
We will soon be posting books that we feel should be on anyone’s list who is interested in the paranormal. Check back soon!
