My SHAKE app detecting earthquake with smartphones

Berkeley university has developed a free app dedicated to earthquake detection: My Shake for android and My Quake for the Mac world. Due to the very sensitive accelerometers which are incorporated to smartphones it is possible to create citizen networks to detect earthquakes,  also called cityzen sismology.

A great thank to physics (and micro and nano science), because without it this would not have been possible.
