Do you already have your own Raspberry Pi computer? Great, now you can put it to good use! The Raspberry Shake & Boom is the complete solution to watch the shakes of the Earth and the infrasonic booms in our atmosphere.
Combining the seismograph features of the the Raspberry Shake 1D, with the infrasound sensors of the Raspberry Boom, this unit gives you the best of both worlds.
Explore the relationship between seismic waves and infrasonic vibrations and discover the unheard symphony of sound to uncover intriguing events such as foreign objects, like meteors, as they plunge through our atmosphere.
Combining the geophone vertical axis Earth monitoring sensor from the Raspberry Shake 1D and a precision infrasound sensor, the Raspberry Shake & Boom detects seismic motion beneath you and “inaudible” noises in our atmosphere coming from a huge number of sources. This makes it possible to monitor earthquakes and ground motion and observe these vibrations move into the atmosphere, for example, in the case of volcanic eruptions, avalanches, landslides and explosions. In addition the infrasound sensor allows you to detect a huge number of other activities that a seismograph alone cannot measure. From incoming harsh weather, planes flying overhead, gun fire and meteors exploding over the Atlantic… See all these and more, and discover the untold secrets happening all around you, with the Raspberry Shake & Boom!
This DIY solution is the most advanced home earthquake and atmospheric Earth monitor in one. It makes a perfect teaching tool to learn about both seismic and atmospheric events and is an affordable way to increase dissemination for your organization, if you have an existing network. This listing contains all the parts for your Raspberry Shake & 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 Shake & Boom incorporates a powerful 24 bit digitizer, sampling seismic and 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 shakes from below and the wide array of imperceivable activities happening all around you.
The Raspberry Shake and some of the software that lives on the Raspberry Pi are licensed under the Raspberry Shake License.
Supported Raspberry Pi models include the Pi Zero, Pi Zero W, 2/3 Model B(+), and Model B+. The older Model B with two diagonally-placed mounting holes is not supported.
