Scosche Industries is an award-winning innovator of iPad, iPhone and iPod accessories and they set out to do two things with the Scosche RDTX Portable Radiation Detector for iPod and iPhone. First given the tragedy that struck Japan, they wanted to try to protect people from radiation and allow them an easy and affordable way to detect it. Second they wanted to continue to give back to the community as they have be doing with the donation of $10 for each RDTX-PRO unit sold to a group of charities with a goal of reaching 1 million dollars within two years.
The RDTX Portable Radiation Detector provides great way to measure background radiation levels, requires no calibration and accurately detects gamma radiation above 120keV within +/- 10% accuracy. The device attaches to an iPhone or iPod touch via the dock connection and the radTEST app allows users to share their results with Facebook, Twitter and Google Maps.
With different levels of radiation all around us, this is great app and accessory for all iPhone and iPod users to have. It will not only help to take the guess work out of a very scary situation, it may also help to give your family piece of mind during chaotic times.
