Ecto Goggles

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. Ray hung his Ecto Goggles with a Trap on the right side of his Pistol Belt when the Ghostbusters filmed their new commercial, when they investigated the Manhattan Museum of Art, and when they arrived at the museum on New Year's Eve.

Ghostbusters: The Video GameEdit

During the Shandor incident on the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, 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. During cases, 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.

Secondary Canon HistoryEdit

IDW ComicsEdit

Ray and Rookie are often the only Ghostbusters wearing the Ecto Goggles. During the Marie Laveau II case, Winston used a pair. In search of a Class 7 on the East Side, the Ghostbusters came upon the Emmanuel Baptist Church but were locked out. They opted to blow a hole in the building. As a precautionary measure, Ray tried out his Ecto Goggles' new thermal imaging feature and checked if it was all clear on the other side. He later examined Donatello with the goggles on.

Ghostbusters: Sanctum of SlimeEdit

Ray wears a pair of Ecto Goggles while he and the team trap the 9.5th ghost in a row due to supernatural activity caused by the Relic of Nilhe.

Ghostbusters: The RPGEdit

In the roleplaying game released by West End games, the Ecto Goggles are also said to have infrared Night Vision capabilities.
