Radiation Detection Japan
there are three types of detectors:
- those that do background environmental readings
- those that can be used to test specific things: food, objects, surfaces etc.
- those that do both.
My husband's product will be the first smartphone compatible product that does both types of testing and where readings can be crowdsourced/shared.
Joi Ito's product only does background environmental testing, but his SafeCast platform appears to be the only place where radiation information is crowdsourced and displayed.
The following products are not smartphone compatible, but are being used widely in Japan for testing food: mirion - rds-80 , mirion - rds-31, thermo fisher , princeton gamma tech pgt. I would guess that some of the users of these devices are also using Joi Ito's safecast platform to upload and share their information too.
if you want a shot that includes a Japanese housewife testing food, then you should go with one of the non-smartphone compatible products and link it to the Safe Cast platform.
Otherwise, Joi Ito's device would be great for a photo of testing in an outdoor area.
