I’ve recently got myself an iPhone. One of the applications that I downloaded was a simple to use application from Russell Targ, a famous ESP researcher. Russell Targ is a physicist and author who was a pioneer in the development of the laser, and cofounder of the Stanford Research Institute’s investigation into psychic abilities in the 1970s and 1980s (from his web site, espresearch.com).


The application, simply called “ESP trainer” tries to improve your ESP skills by training you.
From ESP trainer’s website:

The ESP trainer was developed under a NASA program by Russell Targ at Stanford Research Institute.

We have found that people are able to improve their ESP scores by using a machine just like this and get in touch with the part of themselves that is psychic. This is often called a clairvoyant ability, and can enhance your life in many surprising ways.

In a year long NASA program with 145 subjects (under Contract 953653 NAS7-100) many were able to significantly improve their scores. Four of the subjects improved their scores at the hundred-to-one level or better. This approach has been used with surprising success on Wall Street. But of course, past results are no guarantee of future performance.

Because you are learning a new skill, slower is better than faster.

The application itself is quite simple and totally free. You’re presented with 4 colored squares and need to guess where the picture is (pick the correct one of the four). If you succeed, you will hear a chime, feel a vibration, and see a large color picture.

If you find yourself frequently scoring 12 or more out of 24 trials, you should contact Russell Targ.
