Even though the technology of a REM Pod is not exactly spanking new by any sense of the imagination, paranormal investigators all over the world are always ready to pounce on the next craze when it comes along. It is unquestionable that the use of the REM Pod has become significantly more commonplace in the field of paranormal investigation over the past few years, particularly when it comes to the purpose of determining whether or not a living spirit can be found in the location where ghost hunting is taking place.
Assuming you have general knowledge of the tools used in traditional attempts at proving the paranormal you have certainly heard of items such as EVP Records which are used to record your question plus the white noise that follows in an attempt to communicate with a entity. EMF Meters or K2 Meters which are used to measure spikes in the Electro Magnetic Field around the device which is said only to spike if electricity in nearby or perhaps a ghost. And lastly items like Spirit Boxes which create either audible noise using a sound bank or tune in and out of open radio frequencies which sometimes to result in some very high quality results such as the famous Necrophonic app.
Therefore, with all of these tried-and-true instruments that are available to the paranormal investigators in question, it is possible to get a better idea of what they are looking for. Where exactly does the REM Pod come into play at this point? Let’s find out.
How does a REM Pod Work?
The REM pod is a piece of equipment that is used in the field of ghost hunting. It is designed to notify paranormal investigators of any changes in the temperature of the location in which they are operating. This provides the investigator with the ability to enter the data into their records, along with any behavior that may have been an instigating occurrence. These records may then be used for later research. This gives the investigator the option to look into any conceivable situations that may have been the catalyst for the spiritual interaction. They will also have the opportunity to note any actions that they may have taken as a result of this that may have been a contributing cause.
The REM-Pod is capable of producing its very own electromagnetic field (EMF) thanks to the utilisation of a tiny telescopic antenna in this process. This antenna may be seen positioned all the way around the apparatus. The existence of materials and objects that conduct electricity has the potential to quickly change the characteristics of this electromagnetic field.
When the field is perturbed by the energy of a probable paranormal presence, each of the four (4) distinct coloured LED lights turns on. This occurs simultaneously. Depending on how close the source is, how strong it is, and how the electromagnetic field is warped, they can be activated in any sequence or combination.
The information that is provided by the REM Pod, which may be accessed while performing an inquiry and analysing the data at a later time, provides context to the activities that are now going place. The results of your research will show whether or not there was any impact on the temperature or electromagnetic fields, for example, at the same time as there was probable paranormal activity captured on tape by your video camera.
Who uses these REM Pods?
To answer your question, the average individual probably wouldn’t want to spend more than $200 on a gadget like this unless they had a strong desire to establish the presence of the paranormal. However, if that was the case, they may consider making the investment. According to the information that I was able to extract during my research of REM Pods, the people who use these devices tend to fall into one of two groups as a direct result. These categories are: Investigators of the supernatural make up the first category of users of The REM Pod. The second category, on the other hand, is made up of of YouTubers who conduct their own independent research.
This will be just one of the tools that the team of experts will bring to the location while conducting a paranormal investigation. The first type of ghost hunter is a professional who is a ghost hunter for hire. In most cases, they are given a fee to enter a home that is thought to be haunted or has a history of paranormal activity. Think of shows like Zak Bagans or Ghost Adventures for these kinds of investigations, as well as your local ones, if applicable, which may be run out of a paraphysics team in a local institution of higher study.
Then there are the YouTubers who are making these devices even more popular, were talking about the ‘Overnight Channel’, ‘Mindseed TV’, ‘Exploring with Fighters’. ‘Exploring with Josh’, ‘Paranormal Files’ and so many more who have spend huge amounts of time and money to investigate some of the most haunted locations that they can find. While this just may be my opinion, I believe that these all or nothing youtubers are setting the bar much higher then these huge Hollywood productions when it comes to reality tv style ghost hunting.
