Often seen on Ray Stantz' belt, the Ecto Goggles are designed to allow the wearer to see invisible ghosts and visually track P.K.E. valences. The Ecto Goggles first appeared in the Sedgewick Hotel on the Ghostbusters' first case and were mainly worn by Ray. Egon and Peter did however wear them briefly in the montage.

Ghostbusters IIEdit

The Ecto Goggles are worn a few times by Ray. They are used by Ray when he and Peter Venkman go on a stakeout to catch the Jogger Ghost.

Ghostbusters: The Video GameEdit

In Ghostbusters: The Video Game, the Ecto-Goggles (also called Paragoggles; the two names seem interchangeable) serve a much more prominent role in the tracking and capture of ectoplasmic entities. Each one of the Ghostbusters, (even Winston) can be seen wearing and using the goggles at some point in time. In the game, the P.K.E. Meter and the Ecto-Goggles work in concert to track and display P.K. Energy and Ectoplasmic phenomena in a way that is visually comprehensible and easy to understand; even for a Rookie.
