GraGraph Home Earthquake Meter


Looking to find out how big and when the quake is starting? The GraGraph will sound an alert and tell you how large the earthquake is on the Richter scale (anywhere from 3 to 10). The GraGraph will however not tell you when a quake might happen - it only tells you what's happening and has no earthquake prediction features. It does however have a built-in LCD clock, alarm and night-light. The GraGraph will also record prior seismic activity.
