Useless Christmas Gift Alert: The UFO Detector

There is always that person in your family who is just impossible to buy for over the holidays. They either buy everything for themselves or their tastes are so niche that you wouldn't possibly know what would make them happy. That is until now. This year's hottest gift is 'The UFO Detector'!

 

According to the product's Amazon listing the contraption "Continually monitors the surrounding area for any magnetic or electromagnetic anomalies" and acts as "a magnetometer interfaced with microcontroller for magentic anomalies." OK then....

 

So, is this your key to having an abduction and E.T free holiday season? Many reviewers of the product aren't convinced with some of the highlights include:

 

- "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 UFOs on a regular basis."

 

- "This little gizmo is a bargain at twice the price and much more accurate than the voices in my head."

 

- "Do not recommend. It will show you truths not meant to be known by Mankind, If you want to keep your sheltered little bubble and ignore the truth about our world, stop reading."

 

So maybe this isn't the answer to your holiday shopping prayers, but at a knockdown price of $48.99 you can't afford not to give it a go!
