The #1 Paranormal News Site
An innovative project has been underway with the aim of producing 3D scans of objects that are haunted and the project has revealed results that are remarkable.
The scientific project is the first of its kind and was conducted by the Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & The Occult. The idea behind the project was to build up a database that is comprehensive of some of the most haunted artifacts around the world using 3D scanning.
The founder of the museum has found the project more difficult that was they had expected as it seems that some of the artifacts that are said to be possessed are not that keen on taking part in the experiment. Greg Newkirk, who is one of the co-founders of the museum, said that equipment failures have occurred, while some of the objects said to be haunted have gone missing just as they were supposed to be going through the scan process.
He went on to say that many people are skeptical about what has been happening and have said that the strange goings on are nothing more than coincidence. However, when it comes to one piece, a haunted idol which the group has given the name of Billy, it has been very intriguing and strange.
Strange Happenings With Object Refusing To Be Scanned
When they came to scanning the idol, which has a very creepy look to it and which has been blamed for many strange happenings that have occurred in the past, it seemed to object and refused to be scanned.
It was said that despite several attempts to scan the object, there was a type of barrier that appeared in front of Billy the Idol and this stopped the group from being able to get a complete scan of the idol. This became a challenge for the group, and in the end, it took more than 30 hours to complete a scan successfully, and this was only after an impromptu EVP session with Billy, in which they explained exactly what they wanted to do.
It seems that the talk the group had with Billy the Idol was enough to quell concerns that the statue had, and then the scan could be successfully made. The issue and problems with the scan of the haunted Idol are very strange indeed, and it may suggest that 3D technology could be put to use to give insights into the paranormal that have not yet been revealed.
It is hoped that the haunted part of the idol does not get transferred onto the 3D scanned object and then go to wreak havoc if they go into mass production.
