I was joking about "nuclear radiation", meaning as in Chernobyl or 3-Mile Island (not that THOSE were a joke) There is radiation everywhere anyway, whether it's harmful to humans is often a matter of degree...

In this case your DR1000 emits only very weak ones, no more than any other electronic device without a true transmitter, and furthermore they don't go far (not much beyond either the tip of your finger or the tip of your stylus respectively)

Maybe the wireless & bluetooth version would be more of a concern, but right now it seems more of a concern when will it ever be released to most people

Anyhoo, we're getting so I'll leave it at this.
