In 2011, when tsunami and earthquake hit Japan, it was a huge disaster. While the humanitarian scale of losses was immense, the environmental toll was also great. For instance, the Fukushima nuclear plant ran into disaster as a result of the catastrophes and posed a major threat to the areas around it due to radiation leaks. As it turns out, the Japanese population is still worried about leaks from the site.


It is by taking note of the Japanese masses’ need to detect radiation levels on their body that Japan’s third largest carrier came up with the idea of a radiation detecting smartphone. Softbank is calling the device ‘Pantone 5.’

The device was unveiled by the company at a press conference in Tokyo. Given the suspicions of Japanese masses towards radiation leaks, the device can prove to be very useful. And to a great extent, these suspicions are well placed. While authorities are trying to portray that the situation is under control, many Japanese don’t believe that.

A number of areas around the Fukushima nuclear plant have been contaminated and are off limits. In fact, hot spots are quite some distance from the plant have also been discovered which are also off limits to the population.

Pantone 5 is available in 8 different colors and includes such IC chips which can measure radiation levels in microseiverts per hour. Users can see these measurements on the display of the device and find out the radiation levels.

According to the president of Softbank, “The threat from the nuclear accident cannot be seen by the human eye and continues to be a concern for many people, especially for mothers with small children.”
