2nd September 2011: Scoshe has already made a name as a maker of mobile accessories but with the latest accessory called the RDTX PRO radiation detector made for iPods and iPhones, it has added charity to its credentials. The accessory that sells for $350 is a device that will enable you to measure radiation levels that are higher than 60keV. The radiation meter docks into the iPhone’s connector and it will let you have a detailed reading of the radiation measurements with an accuracy error of just 5%.
This hardware radiator, with a software application for iOS, detects gamma rays and it does not have to be calibrated either. The presence of radiation harmful to humans can be read easily in two ways as a digital measurement and as a colourful display, which is easier to understand.
If the surrounding environment is safe, the RDTX PRO radiation detector will show a green colour reading; if moderately dangerous, a yellow indicator will be on display; and if the levels of radiation are dangerous, the colour on display will be red. This detector has been launched as a result of the Tsunami and subsequent nuclear calamity. The detector will be released first in Japan. Scoshe Industries also plan to donate $10 from each RDTX PRO radiation detector sold for the victims of the Tsunami in Japan and hope to donate at least $2 million all in all.
The RDTX PRO radiation detector and app for iOS has been accessorized for iPhones and iPods but it can also be used separately as a radiation alarm that will work with an AA battery for 96 hours. Users can share dangerous radiation reading results of 60keV and above on social networking sites like Facebook, Google+, and Twitter.
