The Banana 9000[3] is an advanced computer that provides effective communication with others.

History

Primary Canon

During construction on the Plasmic Strainer, Ray Stantz presented the Banana 9000 to Slimer. Ray had added a voterizer synthetic speech library to the computer so that Slimer could effectively communicate with the Ghostbusters.[4][5] Once a message was typed on the 9000, it read the message aloud in perfect English.

During the Proteus incident, Janine Melnitz utilized the Banana 9000 to replay captured audio from Slimer's Recorder Pack after he went inside the Containment Unit on a reconnaissance mission.
