Find all your DIY electronics in the MakerShed. 3D Printing, Kits, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Books & more!



If you’re not following along with the great work RDTN is doing to create networks of radiation sensors, check out just one of their projects: iGeigie, a geiger counter that plugs into your iPhone.

iGeigie – world premiere of a portable Geiger Counter with iPhone dock.

- Glass Geiger Tube can detect beta and gamma radiation
- Runs on mophie juice pack
- iGeiger app computes Counts Per Minute (CPM)
- Breadboard architecture allows for continuing upgrades and improvements
- Interface with iPhone through line-in interface
- Ability to call the iGeigie and listen to clicks

If you like what you see, be sure to support RDTN’s Kickstarter project.

  1. Please stop with the endless breadboard use. Nice for quickly testing a thing but DO NOT use them for anything else. Just solder it to a prototype board. That way everything keeps working when you bump it/look at it.

  7. It ‘an other application certainly much appreciated by users of hi-phone. But are not are declared the technical performance and sensitivity of the used Geiger tube, that from what I can see, is very small and coud not be sufficiently sensible to measure small levels of beta and gamma ionizing radiation.
