Smart phones that can scan for radiation are a huge draw at CEATEC – Japan’s biggest IT and electronics trade show.

The country’s largest mobile phone carrier NTT Docomo unveiled the product many are interested in since the nuclear accident at the Fukushima plant.

Also on display at the event just outside Tokyo, is a novel way of trying on clothes when you are out shopping called Augment Reality.

Toshiyasu Shimizu, Division Producer at Toppan Printing Visual Solutions, said “This allows a user to immediately see how a design or colour looks. So it’s for shopping centres, clothing designers or people making T-shirts. I think they would find it quite interesting.”

To help make driving safer, there is a device that shows other cars before the driver sees them and calculates the most eco-friendly route.

Almost 600 companies from all over the world are taking part in the event, and 20,000 visitors are expected to attend.
