The Ovilus, a Ghost Hunting Tool

An amateur ghost hunter discusses her first experience with an Ovilus, a controversial piece of paranormal investigation equipment.

When investigating a haunted site, it is important to use the right ghost hunting equipment, including a device called the Ovilus. Ghost hunting has become quite sophisticated with its modern hunting equipment. Investigators use sensitive digital recorders, K2s (a type of electromagnetic field detector), digital cameras, infra-red cameras, and mel meters, which detect EMF and ambient temperatures. On a recent paranormal investigation with Haunted Rockford at the Rockford, Illinois, famous Coronado Theater, the paranormal group TNT introduced my family to a new piece of equipment, the Ovilus.

The Ovilus has been around for a few years. It was created by Bill Chappel of digitaldowsing.com. TNT Paranormal of Illinois currently uses the Ovilus as part of their investigations. According to Mr. Chappel, the Ovilus, "…works by measuring changes in the 'environmental' energy fields around it. It modulates the energy changes into audible speech using a synthesizer chip, an extensive English word dictionary, and a function that phonetically sounds out words." He goes on to write that "The device has seven modes of operation. It includes a dictionary mode containing 512 stored words, phonetic mode (sounds out words by syllable), a combination mode (both dictionary words and phonetics) and a 'yes' or 'no' mode."

In theory the device is meant to help spirits form words and communicate with investigators through the device. It is placed in a room and at random times electronically forms words and phrases.

It is understandable that this device has received a lot of skepticism since its inception. The creator's own website states "for entertainment use only" and should not be used as evidence. I can certainly understand that the device gives off words that can be hard to understand and can be interpreted in different ways by different people. We as humans tend to try to find meaning in the most abstract things, much like how the human mind will see faces in random patterns. One of TNT's own investigators stated that the Ovilus is just an experimental device that they are using to see how it goes.

We saw the device being used most heavily in the owner's apartment at the Coronado. Some words seemed to come out clearly, some more garbled. Some words seemed random, while some made a small bit of sense. The Ovilus did sometimes seem to answer our questions or say words that fit the situation. For example, I interpreted the word "names" while we were each introducing ourselves. When someone asked if the spirit would speak with us, it seemed to answer "no." My son set up a flashlight and asked the spirits to twist it to make it come on, one of the people in the room thought that the Ovilus spoke the words "it's too hard." Soon after that my daughter asked if the spirits could move the flashlight and the Ovilus clearly spit out the word "sister." My son asked if they spoke Spanish, the Ovilus stated "si" when asked if they spoke French it sounded like "allo." There did seem to be very few clear words, and each time it spoke, it was open for interpretation by the group. It was really fun to work with, but I would agree that it should not be used as evidence in a serious investigation.

In his review of the product, Paul Bradford of SyFy's "Ghost Hunters International" compared the use of the Ovilus to the use of Tarot cards to predict one's future by placing meaning on a set of random images. We have to place meaning to the Ovilus' random words. In a way, he is right, the tool is open to interpretation, and everyone interprets things differently. However, although this review was written in 2020, it isn't clear if Mr. Bradford has tried the device in the field. The Ovilus is an interesting investigation tool and should not be relied on or ruled out for hunting ghosts. If I were to be a serious ghost hunter, I would probably use the Ovilus, but use it sparingly.
