Updated Raspberry Shake promises better detection of Earth movement
This is part of a series of articles that looks at entrepreneurs hoping to get their ideas off the ground through crowdfunding. At the time of writing, each of these innovations is currently seeking funding.
A next-generation version of the popular Raspberry Shake, a personal home Earth monitor, has started a round of Kickstarter funding and may soon be available to purchase. The original Raspberry Shake, made by OSOP, is a professional-grade seismograph which snaps right onto Raspberry P, the popular single-board personal computer. The updated Raspberry Shake 4D can detect almost double the range of vibrations as compared to the original, and can receive quadruple the quantity of data. This allows amateur and professional geologists and seismologists alike to measure not only earthquakes, but the movement of sinkholes, the effects of fracking, and the effects of deep well waste water injection and fracking, nearby construction, traffic movements, cheering crowds at local games, and even noisy neighbors.
