Scosche announced its new RDTX-PRO radiation detector and app for iPhone and iPod touch. According to the company, the device needs no calibration and allows users to accurately detect gamma radiation above 60keV within +/- 5% accuracy. It connects to iPhone/iPod touch via the dock connector and is designed to use with the free radTEST application that offers consumer friendly meter display that shows radiation levels as safe (green), elevated (yellow) or dangerous (red).
The Scosche RDTX-PRO can also be used as a radiation alarm independently from the iOS device. When being used as a standalone alarm the RDTX-PRO runs on one AA battery and provides up to 96 hour of radiation detection. Coming in September, the Scosche RDTX-PRO radiation detector is priced at $349.99.
