Safecast Geiger Counter Now On Kickstarter

Awhile back, Bunnie wrote a lengthy, must read article on designing a geiger counter for Safecast (a global sensor network for collecting and sharing radiation measurements).  Now you can back the project and get your very own, limited edition, Bunnie designed geiger counter!

We wanted to do something special for the Kickstarter community, who helped us get Safecast moving in the first place, and thought that a limited edition version of the geiger counter we designed, at a discounted price, would be a cool way to do that.

So here you go: a Kickstarter exclusive Safecast geiger counter. Limited clear plastic casing (like these pics), numbered edition of however many people pre-order them here. The only way ever to get this clear version is from this Kickstarter campaign. Obviously, this edition is a real working geiger counter, 100% functionally identical to the forthcoming retail release version.

Back the project on Kickstarter.

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. I thought I understood this project until I read this post. Bunnie donated his time and design expertise, and the Safecast team has spent months in development. Now, suddenly, International Medcom will be building and selling the Safecast at a significantly higher price than their own premium, nearly-identical design that’s been on the market for years. This isn’t just baffling, it’s abusive. The entire stated goal of the project was to build a counter that (1) is accessible to everyone, and (2) can be trusted while being accessible to everyone. The second goal was questionable from the start, and now the first is completely out the window; why bother bringing this product to market?
