Now, Smartphones That Can Detect Radiation

Posted on May 29, 2012. Filed under: Technology | Tags: , , , |

Mobile phone operator Softbank Corp said it would soon begin selling smartphones with radiation detectors.


Mobile phone operator Softbank Corp said it would soon begin selling smartphones with radiation detectors , tapping into concerns that atomic hotspots remain along Japan’s eastern coast more than a year after the Fukushima crisis.
Parts of north-eastern Japan are still off-limits due to highradiation levels after the Fukushima nuclear plant was devastated by a huge earthquake and tsunami, triggering meltdowns and spewing radiation.
Anti-nuclear sentiment is high, with advocacy groups in Tokyo and other cities calling for radiation monitoring at schools and other public facilities.
“The threat from the nuclearaccident cannot be seen by the human eye and continuesto be a concern for many people, especially for mothers with small children,” said Softbank founder and president, Masayoshi Son, standing in front of an aerialphoto of the crippled plant.
The smartphone in the company’s “Pantone” series will come in eight bright colors and include customized IC chips made by Sharp that measure radiationlevels in microsieverts per hour.
The phone, which goes on sale this summer, can also keep track of each location auser tests for radiation levels.
Son, who emerged as an outspoken critic of nuclear power and advocate of renewable energy sources after last year’s quake, told vendors and reporters that the smartphone was more portable and user-friendly than conventional Geiger counters.
Softbank, Japan’s No. 3 mobile phone operator, has not set a price on the new smartphone yet, but Son told reporters after the event that it would be in an affordable price range.
