Firm makes iPhone Geiger counter for worried Japanese
A Japanese company Tuesday unveiled a cheap Geiger counter for the iPhone to enable people worried about the March Fukushima nuclear accident to check their environment for radiation.

The probe, 14 centimetres long by five wide (six inches by two), connects to the iPhone and the screen displays radiation readings in combination with a special app such as the Geiger Bot.

The device was developed on the initiative of a young researcher who wanted to make a cheap and easy-to-use Geiger counter available following the world's worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl.

"Immediately after the disaster triggered by the earthquake and tsunami of March 11 in the northeast of the archipelago, the cheapest Geiger counters cost 60,000 yen ($780, 570 euros) and were hard to find," said Takuma Mori on the origins of the device made by Sanwa Corp.

The first models for iPhones will go on sale in the next few days priced at 9,800 yen ($127). (more at link)

No need for one in Japan.

It's already completely irradiated.

I'm in Okinawa and most people here act as if we are a million miles away from Fuku. If I read that the device is at least moderately accurate and not just a POS novelty item I'll likely be buying one.

Probably won't be too long now. I'm sure Japan is the test market. Europe is next, you can be sure.
