Do you already have your own Raspberry Pi computer? Great, now you can put it to good use!

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 all the parts for your Raspberry Boom unit, ready to be put together – You just need to add the Raspberry Pi board (sold separately). This is an easy DIY project which is fun and simple to put together – Just add the Raspberry Pi!

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.

Ideal for hobbyists and creators who already have an extra Raspberry Pi kicking around.

We ship you everything you need. Just pop in your own Raspberry Pi, assemble the parts 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.
