Earthquakes can bring down cities within minutes. Thanks to technology for which people get earthquake alerts. But still if you want to visualize an earthquake in real-time then what will you do? Don’t worry. A design student has made a 3D fabricator called Quakescape that can visualize earthquakes in real-time.

Quakescape

James Boock, the designer of Quakescape, is a student of design. The Quakescape 3D fabricator uses a white landscape model of Christchurch, New Zealand. However, through using stepper motors, Boock’s Quakescape 3D fabricator streams seismological data from GeoNet to paint the topographical model as earthquakes happen. So when it will be shaken, Quakescape will move the nozzle to the corresponding geographic location on that model, and later it deposits a drizzle of paint to the epicenter corresponding to the magnitude of the quake. Have a look at the demonstration.
