* ''Film/{{Ghostbusters 1984}}''. When the team goes after the library ghost, Egon Spengler has a meter that reads PKE (Psycho Kinetic Energy) valences, which are apparently given off by ghosts. It's the one that has the "arms" go up when the PKE increases. When Venkmann goes into Dana's apartment, he brings an odd meter of some sort with a long pole that sucks in air, with a hand-pump. When Dana asks him about it, he only says that it's one of their "little toys". It's based on a real-life device called a "Bacharach Chemical Sniffer", once used to check for gas leaks and other things. One ''could'', in theory, use it to find evidence of a haunting (vapor trails and such), but con-man Venkman is only trying to look like he knows what he's doing.
* The movie ''Film/ThatThingYouDo'' has an applause-o-meter that determines the winner of a band contest.

* In ''Film/MenInBlack'', Agent J comments that the Edgar Bug gets a 9 on his "Weird-Shit-O-Meter." Seriously though, Agent K uses a small soil analyzer with a row of multicolored lights to determine what kind of alien he's dealing with. ("Green" apparently means "Bug.")

Not to be confused with any of the meters used in games (like KarmaMeter). Compare ThingOMatic, TheLittleDetecto, EverythingSensor and TwentyPercentMoreAwesome.
