New Mobile App Detects Earthquakes by Monitoring the Synchronized Movements of Smart Phones
Much of the damage and injury caused by earthquakes could be prevented if a warning of an imminent earthquake were available.
Using the sensors built into today's smart phone and tablet devices, VibeSync can detect an earthquake anywhere in the world where sufficient numbers of devices are running this free app which is available for download for both iOS and Android users.
The reason this system works is due to the requirement for synchronous motion of VibeSync activated devices responding in unison to a trigger event within a specific geographic area - so simply picking up one's phone to make a call will not trigger the VibeSync system. This fact allows the developers of VibeSync to effectively detect earthquakes and then inform those who are located in the danger zone.
VibeSync uses signals that travel close to the speed of light to detect earthquakes, but earthquakes travel at speeds close to speed of sound. This difference in speed is the reason VibeSync can alert its users (depending on their location) before they feel the earthquake. Even a few seconds of advance warning can result in considerable savings in damage and injury.
In addition to its earthquake detection features, VibeSync app has a number of desirable features that allow its users to chat for free and share their location with friends and family. With VibeSync, users can create contact groups for emergency and non-emergency use and chat with individuals or entire groups at once.
If a user is in urgent need of help, VibeSync will spread the message around with its "Emergency" button. With a single secured click, a call out for help is sent to the user's entire Emergency Group.
Apart from emergency circumstances, VibeSync is equally practical for regular daily events. There are many practical applications for the location sharing feature of VibeSync. Some examples are:
- Meeting friends at a new spot in town
- Going on a road trip in multiple cars
- Parents wanting to keep tab on their kids
VibeSync is very useful for those who are fans of out-door activities such as hiking or skiing or any type of activity where one can get separated from others. With VibeSync, users can easily find their friends and connect with them.
