  1. Very cool. The Minnesota Science Museum has something like this, on a much larger scale. Called the Seismofon, it chimes based on seismic data from around the globe.

  2. Very well done!!! I have thought of something along these lines myself. Would you mind telling me where you got the solenoids?

    Many thanks
