It's a slab of wood, with letters engraved on it. Moving the provided wooden pointer according to subconcious ghost- provoked impulse will point to letters, forming a message.

Unlike the Ouija Board, this device will contact only the ghosts of those who were never born; useful for chatting up Emperor Norton II or Alan Turing's daughter. However, the letters are unfortunately all in the Voynich Manuscript language, and therefore all messages are indecipherable.
