Based on the CMOS camera sensors we succeeded in developing an App for android mobiles, working as a real Geiger Counter. This is not a fun app as many other ! We already did several measurements on different devices with several calibrated radiation sources (CO60, CS137 from 10 µS/h to 1 Sv/h) The App is available now on Android 2.2 and newer devices with a list of devices we have already calibrated. Part of the work is done at the Helmholtz research facility at munich. For example 1µSv/h produces 170 counts per minute on a Nexus One phone or Samsung Mini with excellent senseitivy

I thought this was a pretty interesting application.
The RC can measure only gamma-emissions. No alpha and no beta-emissions.
