Scosche Industries, award-winning innovator of electronic accessories, released its latest gadget for iPhones – a Geiger counter. The Scosche RDTX is a radiation detector attached via cable to an iPhone, instantly reporting radiation levels in the surrounding area. ┬áIt can be set up to display the results using a detailed digital scale, or a simple analog style meter set to green, yellow and red zones. Additionally, the meter will record average levels and total dosage over an extended period of time, and sounds an alarm if levels get too high. It can even upload the results directly to Twitter or Facebook, or to Google Maps to help develop radiation maps that show hot zones. The gadget is currently only available in Japan, but plans to expand the market and lower prices are in the works.
