Each night of your life it's the same routine: same boring bed, same boring pillow, same boring pattern of reducing alpha waves, generating theta waves, lowering EMG, entering delta sleep, and finally engaging in rapid eye movement. Aren't you sick of it?

Thanks to a few innovators, however, sleep doesn't have to be boring. In fact, when armed with the right accessories, it can be so exciting you'll regret having slept through it.

Ghost hunting is a fairly new field that's only existed for a few decades in its modern form.

Therefore, we at American Inventor Spot have decided to leap to your rescue. Everyone wants to find a better way to beat the heat, but not everyone has the luxury of taking the day off and splishing around at the local water park-some of us have jobs, you know. It is for these unfortunate individuals that we direct our assistance. read more »
