Post Apocalyptic Minatures by Marc Giai-Miniet

Here's something of a treat for those who like post apocalyptic art, check out the diorama of of French artist Marc Giai-Miniet. They are reminiscent of a Lori Nix post I did a while back.

While it may not fit perfectly in the post apocalytic genre, I thought the works where fantastic and worth a look. The detail and craftsmanship of his art is superb:

Geiger Counter for your Mobile Phone

Yep there seems to be an app for everything these days and you can even find a few to help you prepare for the have an android app that can detect radioactivity. How does it do it? Read a bit more below:

The app uses the sensor on the front or rear camera of your phone as a radiation detector. It’s not a true Geiger counter (unless your phone has a helium-filled glass tube we don’t know about), but it measures the radioactive interference that can be seen on the sensor when no light enters from the lens. The app measures non-light sources of energy from everything from a tiny and harmless radioactive chip to a full-on blast of gamma rays from a lab machine – the stuff that Stan Lee’s dreams are made of.

Check out the video complete with German accents (at first I thought thought Arnold was doing the voiceover).

Judging by the reviews it actually seems to work well!
