august. no one felt it, but the ultrasensitive fiber optic cables picked it up. >> we could record seismic data that before was impossible to collect. >> reporter: the cables have been buried beneath the surface here at stanford for years. now the professor is repurposing them into an under ground network of seismic detectors. the network is a simple 2-mile figure eight in the middle of campus. they worked with stanford
researchers and won a design award for illustrations of the work underground. perhaps the most promising part of project is the fiber optics ability to record the faint first waves of a quake that come even before the ground shaking. >> they're able to pick up the fastest moving waves and usually they're followed by the actually surface waves. >> reporter: could this some day become part of a relatively cheap hurricane warning system? they hope it can. >> the hope for this technology is have a seismic observatory everywhere in the world. >> reporter: maybe one day it could become like a giant world wide glass ear, always
