Worried about Radiation?

Written by Nick Farell


There's an App for that
Japan's largest mobile phone carrier, NTT DoCoMo, has developed a smartphone capable of measuring radiation levels.

While this is not really a problem for us in the EU, there is a lot of interest in Japan which has a bit of a bad history when it comes to all things nuclear, although two of those incidents were not its fault. A smartphone that can measure radiation levels will be shown off at the Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technology (CEATEC) in Japan next month.

Demand for radiation devices has increased dramatically in the country in the last six months and it’s this demand that inspired NTT DoCoMo, Japan’s largest mobile phone carrier, to develop the special smartphone. The phone has a jacket that incorporates sensors. Besides the one capable of detecting radiation, there’ll also be one that can measure the alcohol level in the body and another that’ll give a reading for body fat.

So you can see how pissed you are as the radiation mutates your testicles and causes you to put on a bit of weight.
