Hammacher Schlemmer offers this Radiation Detecting Watch for $1,500. With free shipping via coupon code "FSRETAIL", it's the lowest total price we've seen for such a rad (get it?!) timepiece. Sales tax is added where applicable. It features an integrated Geiger-Müller tube which measures single-dose gamma ray levels and cumulative exposure, dose tracker, user-defined minimum radiation threshold up to 9999 mSv with alarm, graphical display, more more. It sounds like a fun (if extravagant) watch to own now, but who'll be laughing when the thing starts pinging like crazy ... and then your face melts off?
