GeoPhone Project

by on Oct.06, 2009, under Equipment

I’ve been seeing the use of GeoPhones on the various ghost hunting shows, primarily Ghost Hunters and Paranormal State. Basically, the GeoPhone is a device that picks up vibrations and displays the strength by lighting up a series of LEDs. This can be used for ghost hunting by providing a visual interpretation to sounds that are cause physically. For example, you can ‘call’ for taps on the table, and taps are heard, but the GeoPhone could visual display those taps for additional evidence. I’ve also seen the GeoPhone used to register foot falls or foot prints on hardwood surfaces, etc.

After seeing this, I thought it would be cool to create one. I was able to purchase a kit from BG Micro, and I housed it in a left over solar powered walk-way housing. I elevated the sensor at the top of this housing, and bolted the circuit board directly to the inner part of the housing. I also added a 9 volt power supply and micro-toggle to turn it off and on.

I created this small video to demonstrate it’s functionality. Let me know what you think!
