Description

Where the Raspberry Shake measures and monitors the movement of the Earth right beneath your feet, the Raspberry Boom taps into the imperceptible 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 turnkey plug and play 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. It comes complete with all components, the Raspberry Pi board and has been tried, tested and is ready for action.  The circuit board of the Raspberry Boom incorporates a powerful 24 bit digitizer, sampling infrasound readings at 100 samples per second with a data transmission rate of four packets per second.

Need some extra protection? No problem, we’ve got you covered.  The hardened enclosure, included here, will protect your unit against rainfall, dust and bugs. We call this an “IP67” enclosure, which means that it is fully weather proof, dust tight and can withstand immersion (30 minutes at 1 meter).  In an effort to bring you a more robust solution, the enclosure shown in the product photos above has been replaced by a larger enclosure (160 mm x 90 mm x 90 mm) and the plastic connections have been replaced with metal ones. New photos are coming soon!

This is a complete ready-to-go, turn-key personal atmospheric infrasound monitor. It is a fully plug and play solution, great for the novice, home scientists, gadget lovers, and anyone who wants their Raspberry Boom ready to go out of the box!  For your added peace of mind, we test the unit for a few days to make sure that every single software element is working to spec and that your Raspberry Boom is well calibrated.  Just take your Raspberry Boom(RBOOM) out of the box, plug it in and connect to start discovering the wide array of imperceptible 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.

The Raspberry Shake and some of the software that lives on the Raspberry Pi are licensed under the Raspberry Shake License
