Kirlian technology is a series of photographic techniques used to capture images of electrical discharges. It is named after the Russian scientist Semyon Kirlian and his wife, who in 1939 accidentally discovered that if an object on a photographic plate is connected to a high-voltage source, an image is produced on the photographic plate. Since that time, scientists have developed digital cameras that they say can capture the discharges, or auras, around people and objects. Some even claim that a fossil’s aura can be captured on a digital camera. However there is no evidence that these devices can do everything that Peter’s glasses can do. After all, this is a fictional story.
