To spread the enthusiasm of seismology to hobbyists the world over, to leverage the power of citizen seismology, and to enable geophysical institutes everywhere to accelerate the world’s transition to high density seismic networks.


It all started with our original personal seismograph, the Raspberry Shake 1D which we launched on Kickstarter in July 2016. It was a resounding success, receiving an award for innovation in Panama from SENACYT and huge interest from consumers and institutes alike. Consumers could access a plug and play professional home science monitor and institutes could easily densify their existing networks with an affordable device that could hold its own against much more expensive models.


The Raspberry Shake range of products are a combination of technologies powered by the Raspberry Pi computer. The main board combines a powerful processor and digitizer which connects to a variety of sensors including geophones, microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) accelerometers and infrasound sensors (depending on the model).

We have over 10 years experience in creating professional seismology solutions, so we ensure all Raspberry Shake devices are highly compatible, delivering data in the industry standard format, called miniSEED. Data display and analysis is also made easy with free analytical software.
