Terremoto – Earthquake Sounder based on the 555 Timer

Victor from Roteno Labs has built this Earthquake Sounder based on the 555 Timer called the Terremoto as a submission to the 555 Timer Contest. [via]

The USGS maintains a server online that consolidates all the seismic data received from sensors all around the world. Terremoto uses an LPC Expresso board and an XPORT AR ethernet module to query the USGS server for a list of earthquake activity. When a new earthquake is received by Terremoto, tones are generated that correlate with the magnitude of the earthquake.
