SeisMac is a Mac OS X application that turns your MacBook or MacBook Pro into a seismograph. It access your laptop's Sudden Motion Sensor in order to display real-time, three-axis acceleration graphs. Version 2.0's enhancements make SeisMac an even more valuable tool for classroom demonstrations of seismic concepts and techniques.

Man that is pretty cool. It detects the slightest movement at all and shows up. I wanna test this and see when the Space Shuttle returns and see if it picks that up at all. Thanks for the link for this. I hadn't seen this.

It detected the slightest touch on my desk and floor. I was really shocked how sensitive the sensor is in the MacBooks.

Thats pretty hard to do on a macbook, the speakers suck. The bass is sooooooo damn weak, iPod earbuds are better.

edit: Wow, a 500hz wave does alot to the Z axis.

You can still see it though, but your right, crack tonegen out it works better.
Whats best is just hooking it up to a stereo;)
