A publication of the popular Russian tabloid gives a dramatic account of the experiments of an inventor from St Petersburg, who has created a device able to see human aura.

    • Well, who knows what true and what’s not — it would be good to see the images taken by this Soul-Camera. There are indeed psychics and the likes who can tell if there is anyone in the room or if someone has come in their vicinity even when their eyes are closed. The explanation behind this is probably that their auras are so big that they can detect anyone who comes in their aura.
