The 'Brinco' device is a functional seismograph that will let you know if an earthquake or tsunami is approaching. While it is impossible to actually predict an earthquake, this device will provide an advanced warning that could mean the difference between life and death.

The Brinco device is a functional seismograph that sends real-time information to various national and regional seismic networks throughout the world. These data centers use this information to try and identify where an earthquake is occurring and what the magnitude of the disaster is. After analyzing the available data, the Brinco Data Center will send a personal message to each Brinco device and warn users if they are in the path of an earthquake or tsunami. The idea is to harness the speed of the Internet to alert people before seismic waves reach their location.
