Quote: Is it a new pair of vibro-pants ?

A quick google shows that it is about the right frequency but would need to lower the voltage or something might get boiled.

A toaster with a cycle time of 20milliseconds that would be cool.

But close - it's good old mains electricity going through you 24hrs a day 7 days a week, wherever you are in the house.

There is some fact involved in the reports - a higher frequency is better at inducing current and an induced current in your body could produce heat and cause tissue damage - and the samllest of these are in your eyes and brain. When our kids were babies I moved the cordless phone and wi-fi to the opposite end of the house from where they slept - but the amplitude compared to the mains signal is small.

Is that measured in the air? What is the peak amplitude ?

Me touching the probe, so accumulting in my body.

About 1V peak to peak, but can get it to double if I hold a mains cable, or the metal bookcase frame next to my desk.

Interesting. Have you tried this outside, away from any mains? It would be interesting to see what it measures due purely to the biomagnetic field (including heartbeat).
