If you’ve ever seen the wildly popular ghost hunting television show Ghost Adventures, then you’re already aware of one of the group’s most powerful pieces of equipment: An SLS camera.
What Is An SLS Camera?
An SLS camera is a little different than a normal video camera because it uses infrared light to arrange dots to show joints and movement. It’s similar to technology used by the Xbox 360 Kinect sensor. In fact, many cameras use the Kinect sensor itself in custom SLS cameras. That’s because the Kinect sensor can pick up things we aren’t able to see with the naked eye. It’s terrifying to think of playing a game on the Xbox 360, and seeing a stick figure appear next to us.
Should An SLS Camera Be In Phasmophobia?
There is confirmation that an SLS camera is already in the works for Phasmophobia, but whether it should be a piece of evidence we use to determine ghosts is still up in the air. It would be a fun (and creepy) way to find the ghost’s room, but we don’t think it should be an actual piece of evidence.
We could use it to confirm the presence of a ghost or as an optional objective. Imagine if someone was watching from the truck while another player was in the room doing a spirit box session, and saw a stick figure appear. They could alert the player in the room that the ghost is about to manifest or hunt.
More Ideas For An SLS Camera In Phasmophobia
Instead of having a stationary SLS camera, players should have a mobile version of it, similar to what they use in ghost hunting shows. Players can walk around the house, holding the camera, or even having it on as “goggles.” Imagine how startling it would be to have a stick figure jump out of nowhere to startle the player. Now, that’s one more way the developer can make Phasmophobia creepier.
