Do you prefer to build things yourself? If so, this product is for you!

Where the Raspberry Shake measures and monitors the movement of the Earth right beneath your feet, the Raspberry Boom taps into the imperceivable activities happening in the atmosphere all around you.

Equipt with a precision infrasound sensor, the Raspberry Boom detects “inaudible” noises in our atmosphere coming from a huge number of sources. From incoming harsh weather, planes flying overhead, gun fire and nuclear testing, to volcanoes erupting on remote islands in the Pacific Ocean and meteors exploding over the Atlantic… See all these and more, and discover the untold secrets that are out there, with the Raspberry Boom!

This DIY solution is the most advanced home atmospheric monitor, a perfect teaching tool and an affordable way to increase dissemination for your organization, if you have an existing network.

This listing contains only the essentials necessary to have a working Raspberry Boom – The custom Raspberry Boom board and infrasound sensor (everything else is sold separately).

The circuit board of the Raspberry Boom incorporates four 24 bit digitizers, each sampling infrasound readings at 100 samples per second with a data transmission rate of four packets per second.

This is a great project for people who love putting things together. It is not overly complicated, but we would class it as a medium difficulty level. Ideal for makers, creators and Do It Yourselfers.

You can use your own Raspberry Pi computer and even laser cut your own enclosure using the details here. Once you have followed the instructions and put it all together, just plug in and start discovering the wide array of imperceivable activities happening all around you.

Please note that the board shown in the photos for the RBOOM is considerably smaller than the actual board that made it to production, which is exactly the same size as the RS&BOOM board. This means that the RBOOM will be compatible with the Raspberry Pi Zero (W), 2/3 Model B(+), Model B + but not the older Model B that has only two diagonally-placed mounting holes.
