  • A few guys in the comments over at hack a day have expressed concern over an alleged lack of isolation between high voltage and data lines in an article on your new geiger counter. http://hackaday.com/2009/10/21/hackable-geiger-counter/
    I do not have the expertise necessary to know whether they're right or not but if they aren't (or are) you might want to comment on the article yourself! There is plenty of praise in the comments, too.

  • well, its a sensor for detecting ionizing radiation. you need one if you want your project to be able to detect gamma rays! maybe you want to make sounds based off of cosmic rays, or need random data for cryptography. im sure a google search would find plenty of other projects involving them.
    its a little pricey at 90 bucks though, i have a complete 'modern' russian geiger counter next to me that i got off ebay for 15 bucks. it was even calibrated, though the papers are in Cyrillic

No public wish lists :(
