Radiation-Detecting Smartphones
The Pantone 5 107SH Can Measure and Maps Gamma Rays

By: Michael Hines (Superstar) Jun 8, 12

The Pantone 5 107SH is the world’s first smartphone with a built-in radiation detector. The radiation-detecting handset was built by Sharp and is being distributed by Japanese telecom giant SoftBank. The phone has a Geiger counter which can detect gamma rays within the range of 9.99 microsieverts per hour and 0.05 microsieverts per hour.

The Pantone 5 107SH can show radiation levels both in real-time or mapped across a specific period of time. In addition to letting concerned citizens measure radiation levels, the smartphone also comes equipped with a 4.9 megapixel camera, a waterproof case and eight different color options to choose from. SoftBank’s newest phone is designed to appeal to concerned Japanese citizens, but it has the potential to be a big hit around the world, especially in towns near nuclear plants and around nuclear waste.
