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!
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 In an effort to bring you a more robust solution, the enclosure shown in the product photos above has been replaced by a larger enclosure (160 mm x 90 mm x 90 mm) and the plastic connections have been replaced with metal ones.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 turnkey plug and play 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. 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 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.
This is a complete ready-to-go, turn-key personal earthquake & 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 Shake & 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 Shake & Boom is well calibrated.
Just take your Raspberry Shake & Boom out of the box, plug it in and connect, to start discovering the shakes from below and the wide array of imperceptible activities happening all around you.
