GammaMaster geiger counter watch

I was going to write a post about a cool Japanese watch I saw, but in trying to find it I came across this one which is much better! GammaWatch.com are selling an integrated geiger counter and digital watch, so if those pesky terrorists release a dirty bomb in your immediate vacinity you’ll be the first to know. (Although I think the big bang might be a subtle hint too).

It’s waterproof to 100 meters which is the only part of the specification sheet I could actually understand! Thankfully we don’t need to understand the numbers anyway, the watch has some handy dials and an alarm for when you wander into an area you shouldn’t have.

    Gotta correct you on that one:
    The ‘big bang’ as known from the typical nuclear explosion would not happen if a dirty bomb detonated, simply because of the nature of the dirty bomb itself. While in nuclear bombs, the explosion is a result of an uncontrolled nuclear reaction in the bomb itself, whereas the dirty bomb is a regular type of explosive which is used to distribute added (but not mixed into the explosive itself!) radioactive material. A nice (though somewhat extreme) example would be the disaster of Chernobyl nuclear power plant reactor 4. The explosion itself was caused by the pressure buildup of superheated steam, and when the reactor lid blew off, the nuclear fuel has been shot into the atmosphere. (and, as you might recall if you were born anytime in the first half of the 1970’s, caused a Europe-wide fallout of caesium-137)
