KitHub’s New Office Is In Tokyo, Japan

We are very excited to announce that KitHub has expanded to Tokyo, Japan!

For the past 2 years, KitHub has been working closely with Safecast on environmental monitoring projects. We've served as the primary distributor of the bGeigie nano kits and the air quality monitoring station. As KitHub expands our environmental monitoring offerings, we jumped on the opportunity to work closely with the Safecast team at their office in Shibuya, Tokyo. Not only will we be able to work 1:1 with the team, but we will have the opportunity immerse ourselves into the Japanese culture and nearby cities including Seoul and Hong Kong.

Safecast bGeigie Raku – Now On Kickstarter

Safecast bGeigie Raku

The Safecast bGeigie Raku is a high-quality, snap-together, GPS and data-logging enabled radiation detector kit that will work seamlessly with the Safecast system.

Easy And Fun Radiation Detector

Our friends at Safecast have designed a new geiger counter called the Safecast bGeigie Raku.

Raku is Japanese for "easy and fun" - easy to build (no soldering) , easy to read (big and bright display), easy to hack (bigger CPU), easy to connect (BLE) and more fun too!

Simply snap in a few components -- including the large display -- and you're ready to measure radiation.

The Kickstarter reward amount will be the lowest price these devices will ever be available and the campaign ends on July 10th, 2017.

Safecast bGeigie Raku Specs

The bGeigie Raku is comes in kit format, but adopts a preassembled main board and snap together components to make it possible to assemble without soldering. Other features include a large, easy to read display and onboard bluetooth to allow measurement uploads through iOS and Android devices. It is easy to hack and expand with a fast CPU while remaining Arduino-compatible
