The P.K.E. Meter (also known as Aurascope) was one of the Ghostbusters’ tools invented by Dr. Egon Spengler that enabled them to track ghosts and other entities.
The full name of the device is a Psychokinetic Energy Meter, so named because its function is to detect the amounts of said energy and to direct the user to its location.
The design of the device is a small screen, mounted on a handle, which has a pair of sensor ‘wings’ protruding from either side. These wings have lights along their length, and will flash and extend as the meter closes in on the source of a P.K.E. signature. Much like a metaphysical Dowsing Rod, the meter will begin to buzz more and more in response to approaching a source of P.K. Energy. Once at the source of the energy, the wings will extend to their fullest length and the meter will buzz noticeably at a higher pitch.
As the name implies, here is a PKE METER design similar to the one in the movie; Ghost Busters. Print this and use it to complete your ghost busters prop set or costume. Being a designer, I’ve improved the design a bit, so this PKE meter is not %100 same with the one in the movie, a bit smaller to fit smaller printers, better buttons and minor changes at the details. Internals should be quite different as i’ve never seen the inside of the original. 😀
Read on for more info, images, STL files of the device for 3d printing and the circuit schematic as well as the full embedded C source code.
I’ve cut the big body parts in two to fit in smaller printers. Also added internal details to screw them back to each other after printing. A bit of epoxy glue should also be fine. I managed to print this on my UP printer and glued them with epoxy. I’ve used the internal screws to secure parts together while glue sets, later removed them.
