It took a while longer than I expected, but Geiger Counter and HV Rescue Shield kits are back in stock and shipping now.

Geiger Counter Workshops @ Toorcamp

Monday, July 23rd, 2012

News flash: Hardhack is running the Hardware Hacking Area at Toorcamp this year, which takes place on the Washington coast in just under three weeks!  (The dates are August 8-12, 2012, and tickets are still available.)

I’ll be running two Geiger Counter Workshops.  Come build a Geiger Counter kit!

I’ll have the Geiger Counter ambient music synth I built for Maker Faire set up, and we can all scout for fallout from Fukushima arriving at the campsite!  Whoohoo!

Online store (temporarily) closed, kits still available through distributors

A quick update: As of last Saturday night I am no longer taking orders for kits.

The easiest way to do this was to remove all inventory from Paypal’s online ordering system, so if you try to place an order you will get the dreaded “out of stock” error message.

Fear not!

Geiger Counter kits are still available through my distributors (click each logo to visit the corresponding product page):

Adafruit Industries

HV Rescue Shields are available from:


A huge thanks to everyone who took advantage of last week’s special pricing on Geiger Counter kits. Enjoy your new kit! (And if you need help getting it working, I’ll still be monitoring the support forums, so ask your questions there.)

Thanks again!


See you this weekend at the Maker Faire Bay Area!

Monday, May 14th, 2012

The Maker Faire Bay Area is this weekend (May 19 & 20th) at the San Mateo County Event Center.

I’ll be in the Maker Shed selling Geiger Counter kits. I’ll be doing a demo on Saturday at 6PM in the Shed and will also be giving a presentation about finding radioactivity in everyday objects on the Make: Demo stage in Expo Hall on Sunday at 2PM.

Stop by and say hello!
