Melbourne, Aug 7 (ANI): A group of ghostbusters equipped with the latest technology are braving Queensland’s haunted hot spots to detect ghostly presence.
Matthew Zyderveld, core member of newly formed Brisbane Amateur Paranormal Investigators, began researching ghost-detecting gadgets after reality TV rekindled his interest in the supernatural.
“I started looking around online to see how much equipment was, and I realised ‘Hey, it’s cheap. I can afford this’,” the Courier Mail quoted him as saying.
The basic equipment the group uses on a ghost hunt includes an electromagnetic field meter, available for around 60 dollars online, a voice recorder, an infrared thermometer to check for temperature fluctuations, a digital camera and a 99-cent smart phone app that claims to translate supernatural communication into English.
Zyderveld and fellow investigator Andrew Small have already used their equipment to investigate two supposedly haunted locations in Brisbane including historic Wolston House, an 1852 National Trust homestead with a reputation as a haunt for troubled souls.
They said their investigations left them convinced their equipment was picking up evidence of supernatural activity, including communication from another realm.
“I don’t fully understand how death and what happens after death works, but I have no doubt the devices do pick up some kind of responses,” Zyderveld said. (ANI)
