SAFECAST is proud to announce that we have been awarded a Good Design Award for 2013, in the “Services and Systems for the Public” category.
SAFECAST was founded shortly after the start of the Fukushima nuclear disaster in March, 2011. Independent and volunteer-run, SAFECAST has developed hardware and software systems for rapidly gathering accurate radiation data and making it easily accessible to the public via the internet and an iOS app. To date SAFECAST has collected and mapped more than 13 million data points, covering Fukushima and the rest of Japan as well as many locations overseas.
To celebrate our Good Design award, on Saturday Oct. 19, 2013, SAFECAST will hold a daylong bGeigie Nano building workshop on the 10th floor of Loftwork in Shibuya, and a thank you party immediately following. Please join us! It’s your chance to build an award-winning radiation detector with assistance from the designers, and learn how to contribute radiation data you’ve collected to our public database.
