Geophone/Siesmic Motion Sensor

The geophone detects vibrations and flashes a series of LEDs that measure the intensity of the vibration. It may be useful in detecting footsteps or other vibrations that may not be noticed.

A good example of its use is in a case of an individual who believes his bed moves or shakes at night. A casual observer may not notice the bed shaking. However, the geophone would detect the movement.
