Suitable Systems Releases SeisMac, First Mac-Native Seismograph

– Free software transforms your Apple MacBook or MacBook Pro into a
three-axis seismic sensor –

WAKEFIELD, MA (July 4, 2006) – Suitable Systems has released SeisMac, a new
software tool that accesses your MacBook or MacBook Pro’s Sudden Motion
Sensor in order to display real-time, three-axis acceleration graphs.

While a number of products have been released that react to movement
through use of Apple’s Sudden Motion Sensor, SeisMac is the first to
display hundreds of data points per second.

SeisMac’s resizable, real-time scrolling display shows an enormous amount
of acceleration information. Place your laptop on a table and see the
vibrations from tapping your toe on the floor. Lay your laptop on your
chest and see your heartbeat. And of course, if there is a real earthquake,
SeisMac will be displaying full seismic information while you drop, cover
and hold-on.

When running on the MacBook or MacBook Pro, SeisMac has a range of plus or
minus two gravities of acceleration, displaying 256 values per gravity,
sampled two hundred times per second. SeisMac is also compatible with older
Sudden Motion Sensor-equipped iBooks and PowerBooks.

SeisMac is free for Mac OS X 10.4 or later. For more information, visit
