RDTN.org moves from plotting data to plotting to build devices to measure radiation levels in real time

RDTN.org is taking the next logical step. Well the next logical two steps, actually. First, they’re going to track down existing radiation monitoring devices to ship to Japan. Second, they’re intent on manufacturing a network of devices that monitor radiation levels so that no one has to encounter this sort of shortage, again.

Remember RDTN.org? The site that Uncorked Studios built in 72-hours to help the people of Japan plot and track radiation levels from the earthquake crippled nuclear reactors?

Well, RDTN.org has the plotting of existing data dialed in. But gathering accurate and timely data to be plotted has been less than an easy task. Seems most of us don’t just have Geiger counters sitting around. In fact, there aren’t many sitting around period. They’re hard to come by. Read More

Turning to the people: RDTN.org provides current radiation readings from people in Japan

they launched RDTN.org, a site that allows anyone in Japan to report radiation levels in their location.

The world has been overwhelmed by the nuclear situation in Japan. Portland is no different. But getting accurate information about what’s actually happening has been difficult to say the least. That’s why we’ve been turning to citizen journalists like yokosonews.tv to get more insight into the story.

But what about radiation levels? What’s really happening there? Well, Uncorked Studios here in Portland thought that giving the people of Japan a way to report radiation levels seemed like the best way to answer that question. And 72 hours later, they launched RDTN.org, a site that allows anyone in Japan to report radiation levels at their location. Read More
