EMF detectors: EMF detectors are small, handheld electronic devices that pick up electro-magnetic fields (EMFs). Both objects and living things send EMF fields. It is believed that ghosts or other paranormal entities radiate a certain type of electro-magnetic field. When they do, these EMF detectors will light up depending on the strength of the EMF signal. Kids and adults enjoy using the EMF. It doesn’t always pick something up, but you never know if you’ll get lucky!
