Even the most cheap android smartphone has Accelerometer which is used for Auto-rotate. I was surfing the web news and found a really great tool which can graph the movement of your phone or tablet.

Then I read a post which says that you can use your phone as a basic seismometer. Don’t expect professional level results from your phone. So let’s get to it.

How to use your phone as earthquake detector.

Here is a web-page which is written is simple java-script and works on every modern day smartphone. Just open the link and it will start making a graph of the movement of your phone. Ofcourse you can manipulate the output by shaking your phone. Even if I open the link in my laptop, Which doesn’t have any accelerometer in it, The graph is moving a little.

Use your phone as an earthquake detector

So, If you thought that you can actually use your phone as a professional seismometer, you are a genius. This is what I am going to show you now. Just open the link given above, and place your phone on a flat surface like a table or ground.

If you see a lot of movement in the graph, either the earth is shaking or your phone’s sensor is faulty. 😀

Here are some benefits of using blogger that can never be overlooked.

  6. Once you clicked save, you will see an error saying “We have not been able to verify your authority to this domain. Error 12” Don’t panic, it is normal. Just note the dns records given here, Like shown below.add a custom domain to blogger cloudflare
