If this season’s storyline on 24 has you worried about the threat of nuclear terrorism, you might want to pick up one of these little gadgets.
The $160 NukAlert keychain radiation monitor automatically warns you of the unseen atomic threat anywhere you go. The pocket-sized device can detect radiation from 100 mR/hr to 5,000 R/hr, for those of you who know what that means. The thing that scares me most is how the maker claims “each unit individually radiation accuracy tested.” Wouldn’t the only way to do that be to expose the thing to radiation?
Chances are by the time this thing goes off, you’ll already have met some sort of untimely fate.
