Detecting radiation with style

It's kind of a bummer that designers are working on things like this, but I guess it's a reflection of the world we live in: this is a stylish bracelet designed for ladies to wear. It vibrates when it detects radiation.

This would make sense in northern Japan right now, obviously, where a meltdown has people on high alert about such fears. But the designers are pitching this to pregnant women everywhere, warning them of the radiation coming from everything from power lines to marble benches. Marble benches?? I think ladies have been sitting on marble benches for a long time and things seem to be going pretty well, but hey, fear of marble is a good way to sell an expensive bracelet.
