Raspberry Shake is probably the smallest seismograph of its caliber in existence, but don’t let its size fool you. It can record earthquakes of all magnitudes. From the vanishingly small blips that are imperceptible to human senses, to the big destructive earthquakes that regularly happen around the world.
While the Earth shakes, other exciting activities happen all the time in the atmosphere, emitting sounds too low for our human ears to hear. These sound waves travel huge distances and come from an incredible number of sources such as meteorites, rocket launches, tornadoes, lightning, wind farms, airplanes, trains, traffic and much much more!
The Raspberry Shake and the Raspberry Boom monitor Earth and atmospheric activity from two different perspectives, making them the perfect compliment for a more complete picture. They conveniently snap right onto Raspberry Pi, the most popular single-board personal computer in the tech world. Once you plug in you are ready to start monitoring and connect with hundreds of others on the largest Citizen powered Earth monitoring network, called Station View, and discover fascinating events from around the globe in real time!
