I am not kidding, I pulled up to my house just minutes ago, to find a white van parked across the street, visiting a neighbor. At this moment, I’m not sure if it’s a social call from a friend, or a professional call… because it’s from :
http://www.cmpsonline.net/ - “The Central Massachusetts Paranormal Society” ;D
I’ll find out what’s up later… but it got me musing. What could we use an Arduino for in terms of Ghost Hunting?
As far as I read, it seems they use devices to measure temperature (Arduino 101), some kind of EMF reading (okay, this is pretty sketchy), and audio recordings and such. Cameras at times. Most of it pretty much manual. Seems to me if you want to catch something that’s rare and transient at best, you’re better off building a trap rather than sitting around all day hoping to get lucky. The thing is, an Arduino is a great tool for triggering devices like a camera or whatever based upon sensing a change, etc… a microcontroller is a really good answer to the needs.
So… Feasible, Fanciful, or just plain Psychotic… can you design the “Better Arduino Ghost Trap”?
