Make your own Ghostbuster PKE Meter prop using a Raspberry Pi and SenseHAT

Starscream205 on Instructables has written up this great handheld, battery-powered project. It is a PKE Meter, popularised in the movie (and cartoon) Ghostbusters. Made out of Raspberry Pi 3B+, a SenseHAT, a night-vision camera (with IR lights) and a 3.5″ low-resolution monitor, the PKE Meter is, of course, “just” a prop, but it looks cool and takes pictures at the click of a button. The 3D-printed case makes it look the part! With a little bit more work using the SenseHAT’s sensors and the feed from the camera, you could take it even further if you wanted to.
