For those who don't know, a Van de Graaff generator is an electrostatic machine which uses a moving belt to accumulate very high electrostatically stable voltages on a hollow metal globe.

If we go along with the theory that 'Ghosts' use electrostatic/electromagnetic energy with which to materialise, then this would be a good machine to flood a haunted area with energy to see if it has any effect. I think we should get one but I bet they are expensive.

Turn it into a tesla coil and have more fun ;)

they are pretty easy to build, its just a matter of finding suitable components.

They build them in science classes....well we did anyway.
