Amazon customers review UFO detector - and it's hilarious

Ever get the feeling of being probed by aliens while asleep but just don't have the hard evidence to prove it?

Well, Amazon.com has the answer: the UFO detector. And, it's on sale and available just in time for Christmas. Seriously...

The UFO detector, made by Images SI Inc. "continually monitors its surrounding area for any magnetic and electromagnetic anomalies" using "a magnetometer interfaced with a microcontroller for detecting magnetic anomalies."

Confused? The description tells it all:

"More than 1/3 of Americans believe in UFO's and one in 10 Americans believe that they have seen a UFO according to a study by National Geographic Channel. UFO sightings are reported all over the planet by thousands of people. The real question is whether UFO's are interstellar vehicles visiting Earth? Most UFO sightings can be classified as misidentified aircraft, planets or other aerial phenomena, but not all of them. There is a small percentage of UFO sightings that can't be explained by any known aircraft or natural phenomena. It is this small percentage of UFO sightings that create an exciting possibility. Over the years real UFO sightings have reported simultaneous electromagnetic disturbances. The UFO Detector is designed to sense these electromagnetic disturbances and signal their detection flashing 16 LED's simultaneously and beeping. The elegantly designed transparent plastic case is a handsome sculptured conversation piece that's allows one to see the electronics inside the case. Suitable for display on a desk, shelf or bedroom dresser."

Amazon seems to be doing quite well with the product since there are currently more than a hundred reviews on the site with an overall rating of 3.4 out of 5 stars. And, most are about what would be expected:

"I am very satisfied with this product and will recommend it to all of the human race" writes James O'Brien.

R. J. Reid reports: "This little gizmo is a bargain at twice the price and much more accurate than the voices in my head."

And "This amazing device gives ample warning and is HIGHLY ACCURATE. I had a pretty good idea of when there was abnormal activity in my area. BUT NOW, DAMN. Every time that I notice distorted sensory emissions, bang, the detector is going off! WOOT WOOT WOOT!" says They Are Everywhere.

But, as with just about any mass produced product these days, it's not all raves. Cyphis complains that "I don't know if this is a scam or if mine was broken, but it doesn't work and I am still getting abducted by UFO's on a regular basis."

And other negative reviews tend to point out that, even if the UFO detector works, it doesn't prevent aliens from doing their, ahem, "dirty work" of probing sensitive areas of the human anatomy.

But, hey, at least it gives one a head's up, right?

As usual, Amazon provides some helpful suggestions before checkout by showing some interesting related products like the 2009-2014 Outlook for Wood Toilet Seats, a Roswell Soil Sample and a tin of Uranium Ore.

And, since it's the holiday season, the UFO detector is heavily discounted at the moment, selling for just $48.54. That's 35% off the $74.95 list price.
