When RFID implants don't work.
Last night I had the pleasure of officially becoming a grinder (hence my recent joining of this forum) . I did a self injection with the xNT NFC tag into my left hand in the standard area between the thumb and fore finger.
I tried to read the tag right after I implanted it, but my hand was fairly puffy. I figured that the puffiness was preventing my from getting close enough to power and read the chip. So I went to bed.
Unfortunately, it is now the morning after, and the tag isn't picked up by my phone! I have other NFC tags laying around, and it can read and write those just fine, so it is not the hardware on the phone. Obviously, DangerousThings tests everyone of their tags to make that it is working before being shipped off.
As of now, the only explanation that I can think of is that:
A) The tag is some how misaligned, and can't be powered by the planer coil in my phone
B) They just sent my an empty syringe! (Seems pretty unlikely)
Other than that I really have no idea, but I really hope I didn't spend all of that money just to stick a huge syringe into my hand.
Any help or tips with what I should do would be greatly appreciated.
