How it works

Raspberry Shake seismographs and infrasound monitors use professional-grade earth sensors, the Shake Board digitizer, and the Raspberry Pi with our custom Shake OS. Geophone, accelerometer, and infrasound sensors act as “earth microphones,” always listening to our planet and human impact.


A geophone sensor consists of a coil wrapped around a mass, suspended over a magnet by a spring. When the mass moves due to ground velocity, it generates an electrical signal (voltage) by moving electrons through the coil.

MEMs Accelerometer

This micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) sensor detects movement using a mass attached to a spring. When vibrations occur, the forces on the spring are measured to determine local ground acceleration.

Infrasound Sensor

This high-precision sensor, also called a microbarometer, measures minute changes in atmospheric pressure. It can detect sound signals that are inaudible to the human ear.

One product, various use cases

Love gadgets? The Raspberry Shake range has something for everyone!


Raspberry Pi enthusiasts, makers, hobbyists, and citizen scientists can connect to the Raspberry Shake network to monitor Earth’s activities from home.


Schools and universities can access global Raspberry Shake data, making it ideal for both seismically active and quiet regions. It supports IRIS Teachable Moments and works with jamaSeis and SWARM software.”


Government and private research facilities can densify networks cost-effectively and comply with legal monitoring requirements.

There are many exciting projects you can do with your Raspberry Shake. Use it to understand ecosystem changes like melting ice caps, landslides, volcanic eruptions, and earthquakes, and observe the “cultural noises” of human impact. It’s fun to build, program, and watch the Earth moooooove!
