Passion for the paranormal has united two people Roger Pingleton and Jill Beitz. According to the couple, they always try to visit the places where strange events happen, indicating the presence of the creatures of the underworld.
Usually, those who witness the appearance of ghosts or poltergeists experience a panic fear, but as for Pingleton and Beitz, they try to understand the message of the spirits. The desire of these two people to communicate with ghosts caused the creation of the iPhone application named “Spirit Story Box”.
The essence of the invention lies in the fact that the application for the iPhone picks up random electrical noise and transforms it into words of a programmed dictionary. The ghost hunters hope that their development will allow people to overcome their fear of spirits, and start communicating with them.
“We wanted to let people have fun with them (ghosts). This is the essence of our invention,” says Roger Pingleton.
The couple reported that they hope to communicate with the spirits that supposedly inhabit the Richmond Museum with the help of “Spirit Story Box”.
Of course, scientists are skeptical of the application, as well as of all inventions of the kind, calling it a random word generator. Critics say that all the words or phrases are created solely by the rich imagination of naive users of smartphones.
However, there are always supporters of the new invention. Thus, the 75-year-old historian Wanda Lou Willis, who is engaged in research of paranormal phenomena, believes that “electronic devices will help in communicating with the spirits.”
“It is believed that when we die, we go to another dimension, and our soul becomes something like an electric current. Therefore it is not surprising that electricity attracts spirits. And our bodies have quite a lot electricity too. To make contact with ghosts you just need to open your mind,” says Willis.
