Imp connected Arduino powered geiger counter, pushing to Xively

Ever since the Fukushima catastrophe I’ve wanted to find some time to take a look a dosimeters/geiger counters.

I found some time this weekend and have an Arduino based counter, outputting counts per minute to an Electric Imp, which is pushing these values up to the Electric Imp servers, where an agent is formatting a Xively request to push the data into the Xively cloud.

The geiger counter itself is based on the project here

The Xively channel can be seen here.

Now that the agent API is in open-beta I will probably get around to writing up a blog post with some more detail
