NEW PRODUCT – Geiger Counter Kit – Radiation Sensor

Geigercounterkit Lrg

NEW PRODUCT – Geiger Counter Kit – Radiation Sensor. Detect particles and/or make a cool random number generator with this handsome Geiger counter kit. This easy-to-make pack of parts turns a simple Geiger-Muller tube (included) into a portable blink, beeping radiation detector. You can also connect an FTDI friend to the header, to get serial output for datalogging on your computer.

We put this kit together in a couple of hours and hand lots of fun bringing it around and listening for ticking sounds near our smoke detectors, bananas, countertops, Brazil nuts, chunks of Uranium, etc. It includes all components (PCB, tube, & parts) but you will need basic soldering tools and two AAA batteries to complete it.

Best of all, it’s 100% Open Source Hardware!

  1. You’re definitely right in saying that it’s only for educational purposes on the product page.

    I somewhat miss that warning here though.

    If this kit does anything at all, it only gives you an indicator to where there’s more radiation detected. It doesn’t have to mean that there actually is more radiation present.

    Still, it’s a cool kit though!

  2. I’d love to hear how you use this as a random number generator…or a short talk about it on AAE. I remember a computer science teacher talking about how generating a random number isn’t a trial task…and that micros aren’t good at it…something about a look up table for a ANSI C???
