The nuclear crisis in Fukushima and surrounding areas is far from over; and consumer radiation meters are expensive and available in special-interest stores. In an effort to make radiation detection more accessible, a Japan-based chemicals company S.T. Corp., in partnership with the Tokyo Metropolitan University, stepped in and introduces the Aircounter.

The Aircounter device is a handheld radiation detector that is easy-to-use that even the middle-class, average Daisukes can understand. It enables users to detect radiation levels between 0.05 to 9.99 microsieverts per hour at a height of up to 1 meter above the ground. The device features a 40 x 25 millimeter LCD screen, a weight of 105 grams, and requires two AAA batteries to run.

According to the company, it will sell the Aircounter beginning October 20 in its existing retail points like drugstores. The cost would be around $190, which is less than half the price of similar devices.
