Have you ever wondered what the radiation measurements were around your home and city? Regardless of if you are a worrywart or simply want to geek out with a new toy (for science!), it’s kind of cool knowing that you could own your own radiation detector. Even cooler to know you can own one now that is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand.
Over the years, we have seen a number of personal models hit the market. They typically maintain a decent size, but this one wins over all. The Dosime Personal Dosimeter is smaller than most any smartphone on the market. Small enough to fit in your hand, in your pocket or just about anywhere else you need it to hang out. It can clip to your clothes or simply sit around somewhere.
If you decide to carry it around, you can collect information and map it all based on your location and time of day. It connects with your mobile devices via both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, using its own app. It even works with the Apple Watch. Via the app, you can view all of the data, including reports, alerts and more.
It comes with its own cradle charger where it continues to monitor and collect data. Now you can monitor your exposure, night and day. Best for those who live in questionable areas surrounded by a history of exposure, nuclear energy plants or medial buildings where X-rays machines are more than common (or, for those who simply enjoying owning unique toys).
The Dosime runs between $199 and $249, depending on where you buy it. It can be found on Amazon for the lowest price tag.
