is a Polish science project using the distributed computing capabilities of the BOINC platform. The main goal of the project is to create a free and continuously updated map of radiation levels available for everyone, by gathering information about gamma radiation using sensors connected to the computers of volunteers willing to participate in the project. Project is completely non-commercial, participating will be free of charge (excluding cost of detector) and the software will be licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL).

Second detector release

The collection for Radioactive@Home detectors

As we announced  earlier, we start second presale of Radioactive@Home detectors.

This time however the detector will be in enclosure, but it is still a "kit" so it will require assembly. The detector will be sent as a PCB wit case and Geiger tube. You will have to buy USB A->B cable (such as for a printer). The date of shipment - January 2012


All that contacted us regarding group sale are requested not to order the detectors through main site.

Group orders will be realised by contacting through PM on the project forum!!!
