Build your RS1D from scratch! This DIY version includes the RS1D circuit board only. Download the Raspberry Shake software, add your own geophone sensor and Raspberry Pi computer, and create your own enclosure to house your new device.
Incorporating a professional-grade vertical seismometer called a geophone, the fully assembled RS1D seismograph is incredibly sensitive. It can detect powerful earthquakes originating on the other side of the planet, and all magnitudes of seismic activity in your local region that cause a vertical movement of the ground. All sorts of ground motion can be monitored including: traffic, fracking, explosions, eruptions, avalanches, landslides, earthquakes and more!
The RS1D is the perfect device for hobbyists, makers(DIY) and Raspberry Pi enthusiasts that want to start learning more about seismic activities and ground motion with their very own high quality seismograph. It is a fantastic and engaging tool for educational facilities teaching STEM in a variety of subjects including geology, seismology, geophysics, computer science and technology.
