Doinkometers, collectively referred to as the Doinkometer Complex, are devices that detect the mood of the plot using radiation from the Fourth Wall.
All doinkometers are patented and owned by the Bureau of Fiction.
Doinkometers measure a special radiation -- called Wutt Radiation -- that emanates from the Fourth Wall. Wutt Radiation carries information about the plot with it, which the doinkometers measure.
Wutt Radiation is measured in units of lolwutts (notated as lW). If the Wutt Radiation indicates that the mood of the plot is generally positive (e.g., happy, cheerful, funny), the doinkometers register a high lolwutt reading. If the Wutt Radiation indicates that the mood of the plot is generally negative (e.g., sad, angry, tense), the doinkometers register a negative lolwutt reading. If the Wutt Radiation indicates that the mood of the plot is neutral (e.g., tranquil, boring, indifferent), the doinkometers register a lolwutt reading close to zero. Each type of feeling has a unique reading on the Lolwutt Scale.
Doinkometers resemble dark grey desktop monitors, with a foot-long antenna poking out of the top and little beepy-light things on the sides. Adjustment knobs, used for correcting faulty doinkometers, are located on the top. On the front of the machine is a touch screen that allows the user to select what plot the doinkometer should monitor. The doinkometer can also archive diagrams of past plots, which are called doinkographs.
- Doinkometers are often used to detect malignant anomalies in the plot, such as the arrival of new villains or a secret plan to destroy the world. This is done by watching for unexpected lolwutt readings on doinkographs, which usually indicate an upcoming plot twist, plot device, or important character. These unexpected readings in the doinkographs are referred to as Wutt Radiation Anomalies, abbreviated to WRA.
