Instructables user mrfixits just posted this su-wheet luminiferous aetheric Tesla-punk tranceive-o-mogrifier doo-dad build. He explains it rather better than I:

The Spooky Tesla Spirit Radio is a crystal radio circuit in a jam-jar. It makes fun spooky sounds by responding to input from several types of electromagnetic sources. This non-powered radio plugs right into the computer sound-in jack, and makes use of audio software for real time sound effects.

    …I would totally buy a kit for this from the Maker Store.

  2. Jon Tereszkiewicz says:

    This device does not even closely resemble the device used by Tesla to try to communicate with extraterristrials. It was not made to communicate with spirits.
