Research and Development
Hello there all. Long time reader, first time poster. I got a magnet in my left ring finger and a rfid in the standard webbing about 8 months ago by Brian Decker. I love both of them and I'm interested in expanding my horizons. Other people at my uni have also expressed interest. To this end we are starting a research group. Hopefully this is grant and endowment eligible, and we will have funding to refrain from cutting corners. We already have permission to do the human testing required, but the extensive bureaucratic oversight might ensure that we do not progress very quickly.
I was wondering, are there any projects that have been considered here that have been discontinued because of price, time commitment, or just sheer difficulty? Originally, I was planning on developing transdermal, but you all came up with practically the same solution I did so that idea was scrapped. Now I think that goal 1 is develop a form fitting minimalist version of the bluetooth le headset implant. Preferably completely invisible. I might try the tragus implant for shits and giggles, but the long term goal of this project is to combine existing technologies like tft screens, supercaps and inductive charging to create a wirelessly accessible screen that shines through the skin. Likely rudimentary at the start, long term progression of this would hope to increase penetration power and screen complexity enough for words to be displayed clearly.
Also, I would love to be part of grindfest, but I'm in New York. Is there any counterpart on the east coast?
