Mobile phone operator Softbank Corp stated that it would shortly start marketing smartphones boasting radiation sensors, knocking down fears that atomic hotspots stay by the side of Japan’s eastern coast over a year after the Fukushima disaster.
Regions of northeastern Japan are still inaccessible owing to lofty radiation intensities after the Fukushima nuclear plant got devastated by a gigantic tremor and tsunami, actuating nuclear meltdown and spewing radiation.
Softbank founder and president, Masayoshi Son, standing in front of an aerial photo of the crippled plant, stated that the danger from the nuclear mishap cannot be witnessed by the human eye and stays to be a worry for a lot of people, particularly for moms with kids.
The smartphone in Softbank Corp’s “Pantone” array will hit markets in eight vivid colors and comprise modified IC chips made by Sharp, which determine radiation standards in microsieverts per hour.
The handset, which will reach market this summer, can also keep an eye on every site a user examines for radiation levels.
Softbank has not fixed a price of this great smartphone thus far, but Son stated that it would be in a reasonable price range.
