Ghostbuster on a keychain?

There's a lot of neat stuff that can be used as keychains such as: a little remote for your car, tiny flashlights, and laser pointers. In Japan, they've created a new gadget you can hook your keys on...

A ghost detector.

Yup, a real ghost detector that lights up and beeps whenever the presence of a ghost is nearby AND doubles as a keychain for convenient portability. Now when you feel the hair on the back of your neck stand up, or the smell of Grandpa's musky aftershave suddenly waffs to your nose, you'll know if you are just a victim of an overactive imagination or if a spooky apparition is really visiting you.

Not only is this gizmo useful, it's also quite attractive. It comes attached to a nylon strap with some Japanese writing (which is cool) and a little ghost figure that reminds me of a miniature Stay Puff Marshmallow Man. Plus you can get the Mini-Ghostradar in a variety of colors. (Too bad it doesn't come with a proton pack).

So how does the Mini-Ghostradar work?

The VP of SolidAlliance, this little keychain's manufacturer, Yuichiro Saito says, "This detects invisible phenomena and so the system is confidential. This is not a game. This is a measuring device."

Confidential? Hmm... For $18, you might as well give it a try. But it would help to know how such a gizmo detects ghosts.

Many speculate the Mini-Ghostradar detects surrounding magnetic waves. So will this little keychain start going off when I walk by my refrigerator which is covered by little magnets holding up my son's artwork??? I'm beginning to think that maybe this gadget is about as useful as a Petrock or Chia Pet.

Perhaps I'm wrong, and this keychain really works. If so, it could change ghosthunting forever. Now anyone can get confirmation that a ghost is in fact nearby. No need for expensive electromagnetic detectors or ectoplasmic detection apparatus.

So what's next from the Mini-Ghostradar manufacturer?

Gaydar with built-in USB flashdrive.

This. Is. AWESOME. I want.

Mimi said...

I will have to get me one of those! Does it come with a mini flashlight or change purse on the keychain as well? Those are so handy!

Keshi said...

o c'mon, for real?

Keshi.

vani said...

LOL- I'm thinking the Chia Pet is way cooler. :)

DaBich said...

I'm with Vani lol
The Ghostbusters just might sue!

Cari said...

The ghost det. are exactly like Mood rings!!! hahahah..

Jill said...

The ghost detector might be interesting. Oddly enough, yesterday I kept getting wiffs of perfume or flowers while I was in the den. I had no flowers there and no perfume on. Weird!

sam said...

I can't wait to see one of those turn up on Ghost Hunters! Jason and Grant should make it mandatory that everyone at TAPS carry one at all times, just to be on the lookout.

Nice find, Pheonix!

:P fuzzbox said...

I always thought that was what the weird background music was for.

delmer said...

I could have used this when I was younger. There was something supernatural going on in the house we used to live in.

ozymandiaz said...

Interesting. Speaking of chia pets, I wonder if they can detect otherworldly visitors like regular pets...

Perplexio said...

It seems to be about as effective as a Parker Brothers Ouija Board.

KC said...

Whether or not it works, I want one. It's so cool! In pink, please.

Karen said...

"Ghostbuster on a keychain?"

Sure coulda used one of 'em when I was a kid!

Sar said...

This is great, but if it's a hit can you imagine the impact on Hollywood? I guess we could kiss our dreams of a Ghostbusters return goodbye. ;)

Jamie Dawn said...

I don't need the GAYDAR thingy; I'm pretty good at detecting that myself.

It's stupid little gadgets like that cute keychain that make people very rich. They are marketing that all the way to the bank! Who cares if it works or not? I actually wouldn't mind having one.

My daughter and I bought a bunch of these little characters in Japan and Korea that they hang on their cell phones or key chains. They were sold everywhere. That craze has not come here, but those little things are so cute.

Phats said...

Haha that's pretty funny. I have a girl on my tennis team that swears her house has a ghost it's quite interesting some of the stories she shares on our bus trips. My sister also believes in ghosts.

Funny stuff

jay lassiter said...

yeah my gaydar is out of wack these days. I would but it in a minute!

The Phoenix said...

Imagine the Ghosthunters with a bunch of keychains! Yeah right...

I'm thinking this technology can be applied to other things you'd like to become more aware of...like:

1)Bad breath detector
2)Mooch alert
3)Ex-girlfriend/boyfriend radar

To be alerted of the presence of some of the above could come in handy.

Phats said...

I would buy an ex radar!

Tai said...

Just when you thought Ghostbusters had cleared that little problem up, eh?

Etchen said...

Will the ghost detector also light up when I use my keys in the door at night? It might be worth buying if it does. ;-)

Kay said...

Oooh... The Swiss Army keychain is so getting bumped down to the mailbox keys now. Not.

David Amulet said...

A good idea, but I dont' understand why the inventor decided that the keychain was the best pairing for this device.

I would suggest, instead, a bottle opener. But maybe I'm the only one with a strong correlation between number of beers and ghost sightings.

Laurie said...

I used to have a pet rock :-)

Grafs said...

Oh I don't need to pay for gaydar; I know people are gay before they do :) I wonder how the ghost hunters will feel about their trade being ousted by a keychain?

Jennifer said...

LMAO! I must have one!

Jamie Dawn said...

Bad breath detector is a very good idea. That could make millions!
I know a few people that I'd like to give that to as a gift. :)

phred said...

Damn, think of all the money I could have saved, and it`s so compact. Arrrgh.

cube said...

Boy some folks just can't wait to be parted from their money.

the weirdgirl said...

I so want one of these. No no, wait! I so NEED one of these! Pesky ghosts!

I already have gaydar. I also have pregnancy radar, apparently, as I'm always predicting when women are knocked up. But THAT could be another seller! (Or maybe PSM detect.)

Will said...

I need this keychain. I have always wanted to see a ghost, and now I will have a greater awareness of when I am in their presence. Awesome!

Tasa said...

Maybe its like a tamagotchi and it goes off whenever it wants to. It is about the same price as one...
