Geiger Counter Watch

Piuj

Who cares what time it is when you're in the Hot Zone?

The GammaMaster watch has a built–in Geiger counter to tell you when you've had enough.

Just wait until someone explodes a dirty bomb somewhere — the company won't be able to sell them fast enough.

Click on the "Pictures and Video" link to watch a movie of how the watch reacts to radiation.

The cool thing about it is that it's always "on" so that you never have to remember to make it operational.

Or, as the website puts it, "You don't have to think about radiation. When the radiation level goes up the GammaMaster will let you know."

This is about as useful as a cyanide detector. By the time you know it's there the damage has been done! Makes about as much sense as wearing a lead undergarment with an x-ray detector...
