Finally, a 20th century solution that claims to let you stay in touch with your dead relatives. Developed by Roger Pingleton and Jill Beitz of StreamSide Software, this 'Spirit Story Box' app claims to allow users to communicate with spirits.

The app works kind of like a digital Ouija board by first detecting the presence of otherworldly spirits before displaying the words that the dead would like communicate.
"The program looks at certain variables within the computer itself and it keeps track of certain selectors, and when it gets to a point where it's going to spit out a word it uses those selectors to select the words,"
Of course, some skeptic nonbelievers claim that the app is really just a random word generator cleverly packaged to appeal to would-be ghostbusters.
