Build the RBOOM yourself! This DIY version comes with the RBOOM board and sensors only. Create your own enclosure, download the Raspberry Shake software and assemble all the parts together with the Raspberry Pi computer board to power it all.
While the Raspberry Shake measures and monitors the subtle seismic vibrations of our moving planet, the RBOOM was designed to record the imperceptible “noises” in the form of infrasonic signals that bounce around our atmosphere.
These sound waves are always present, even if we can’t hear them, and are emitted from some fascinating sources, both man-made and natural. From traffic, wind farms, and the supersonic booms of jets flying by, to avalanches in the mountains of Austria, volcanic eruptions in Hawaii and even certain animal calls such as the elephants that roam the African Savannah.
The RBOOM is ideal for those wanting to study the many sources that emit infrasound. Or for those with an interest to discover more about the unheard symphony of sound happening all around us.
