Scosche RDTX-PRO radiation detector
If you’re worried about the radiation levels where you’re currently living, or at the next house you’re going to buy (especially if you’re in Japan), don’t worry – there’s an app (and a detector) for that. Scosche has just announced the launch of the RDTX-PRO radiation detector for the iPhone and iPod Touch. This hardware and app combination turns your iOS device into a mobile radiation detector that fits in your pocket. Requiring no calibration whatsoever, radiation detection has never been this easy. All users have to do is plug in the detector into the iOS device and run the app (radTEST, downloadable free from the Apple App Store).

The app then shows the levels of radiation picked up by the detector on a simple to understand graphic meter: green for safe, yellow when it’s elevated and red for dangerous. Users can also switch the view to determine radiation levels, and can even share their results using Google Maps, Facebook, and Twitter (warning everybody in the vicinity as well).

The Scosche RDTX-PRO will retail for $349.99 and will be available in September from Synexx in Tokyo Japan. $10 of each unit sold will also be donated to a group of charities that are working towards the cause of aiding those affected by the earthquake and tsunami earlier this year. Find out more.
