With the summer storms well and truly upon us, don’t you wish you could avoid the flash flood soaking and just stay indoors the 30 seconds it takes for the storm to pass?
Well in a true ‘show n tell’ style resident FunkBunker Gary Loosley of SIGA Vision bought in his latest project, the Lightning Detector Mk5! This amazing looking contraption can pick up lightning strikes happening up to 300 miles away and display the strength of the strike and direction it is in. So avoid getting frazzled and don’t go out without checking it first!
Gary designed and built the device from the ground up and has an LCD display planned for Mk6 which will show the approximate distance to the strike in miles and further information on the lighting strength. Google Map showing the strikes coming soon?
