Jack Jones the creator of Ghost Radar was the guest on Paranormal Technology at Going Beyond Radio. The show reviews paranormal technology currently available to investigators. Ghost Radar has been downloaded over 10 million times in nearly every mobile format from Iphone to Kindle.
During the interview Mr. Jones explains how the Ghost Radar uses certain parts of your mobile device to capture subtle changes that you might find with paranormal activity. These changes are then calculated and turned into a blip on the radar or attached to a word. Jack also shares what the future Ghost Radar app will be capable of.
Listen to the interview below:
This from the Ghost Radar site:
Ghost Radar is a portable application designed to detect paranormal activity. Currently supported portable devices include the iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, BlackBerry, Android, and Windows Phone 7 devices. Ghost Radar attempts to detect paranormal activity by using various sensors on the device on which it is running. Like traditional paranormal detecting equipment, Ghost Radar has many sensors available to it on mobile devices. However, traditional paranormal equipment can be easily fooled when simple mundane bursts of normal energy occur. Ghost Radar sets itself apart by analyzing the readings from sensors giving indications only when interesting patterns in the readings have been made.
Ghost Radar employs a proprietary algorithm to analyze the quantum flux. This application does NOT detect EMF nor gravity. Readings for various sensors are analyzed to detect QUANTUM Fluctuations. Interpretations of the sensor readings are displayed graphically as blips on the radar along with numeric and textual readouts on the VOX. Use your Ghost Radar to hunt for odd changes in the flux. Hunters of all types may find anomalous areas of their environment where readings simply can’t be explained. You be the judge. Are the results of your hunting evidence of paranormal activity?
The theory of what is happening is that intelligent energy can be made aware of their ability to influence the sensors of the mobile device. The various readouts are an interpretation of certain readings from the sensors. An intelligent energy should be able to influence the readouts and communicate with you. What those readings mean and how you interpret them is up for debate.
How does Ghost Radar work?
Modern mobile devices are amazing devices filled with sensors and transceivers. To name a few, there is a WiFi transceiver, a touch sensor, an acceleromete, a phone transceiver, a microphone, and a magnetometer. As you can see there are plenty of ways for paranormal activity to interact with the device, the trick is to interpret the readings from these sensors and receivers and present them in a way to help track the paranormal activity.
The majority of equipment used to hunt for paranormal activity was not originally designed to hunt ghosts and do not find the majority of their use in the paranormal. For example EMF detectors and KII meters were designed for electrical work and are used predominantly in that field, not the paranormal. Also, IR cameras were originally developed during the Korean War for the military to find enemies in the dark. These days IR cameras are mostly used by firefighters, astronomy, police, etc. Even though these devices were not originally designed for the field of paranormal they do seem to be the most effective tools in the hunt for the unknown.
Ghost Radar enables your mobile device to be used for the paranormal even though the device was not originally designed for the paranormal, just like the EMF detector, KII meter, and IR camera. The readings that Ghost Radar presents are open to your interpretation and up for debate.
Ghost Radar uses a variety of readings from the sensors on the iPhone and iPod touch to measure anomalous changes in the Quantum Flux (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_fluctuation). A large portion of the flux readings come from the background anomalies of the accelerometer. These sensor readings come in constantly and have only very minor changes. Ghost Radar tracks these readings and analyzes them; watching for strange behavior. Based on a multitude of different readings and historical trends Ghost Radar uses its proprietary algorithm to present various visual and audible representations of the readings.
Ghost Radar is an attractive app and the basic version is a free download says Chuck Manning and Don Ford hosts of Paranormal Technology, the two point out that the Ghost Radar provided random information during use and none of the information collected was useful in an actual investigation.
