Do Want

with one comment

Everybody has strange esoteric things they like to collect and I’m not exception. I like to collect wrist watches with unique functions. My day-to-day watch is a Tissot T-Touch which has gadgets upon gadgets inside including a barometer, thermometer, compass, and altimeter. Previously I wrote a Fossil write PDA that ran Palm OS 4. Well somebody pointed me to a watch that is probably ungodly expensive but functions as a dosimeter.

A wristwatch that can detect radiation? I want one! I don’t expect to ever find it useful (although walking through the TSA’s back scatter scanners while wearing one could be interesting) but it has a stupid feature built into a wristwatch so it’s on my to-get list. If anybody has any idea what the going price of one of these things is please do let me know (and if you can tell me where to get one if the price is reasonable that would be appreciated as well).
