Are matrix-like through skin ports/connectors possible?
edited May 2017 in Coatings, transdermals, other implants
If you have ever seen the matrix you'd know that in the real world they have thru skin plugs that let them interface with the matrix. Is that possible? can you have a port that connects to sub-dermal circuitry that pokes up through the skin? I'd imagine not because there would have to be an edge some where right? And that could lead to infection or things getting under your skin... right? Or am I wrong? I mean, if it was possible you'd probably want some sort of dust cover to keep debris out of the port, but I image you could do a lot with that sort of technology! I mean, one of the big hurdles I see with a lot of potential sub-dermal devices is the inability to simply and efficiently charge power hungry devices, and I imagine that you could do a lot more, like have nerve connected sensors that send data to external devices, like say, an experimental robotic prosthetic or for faster computer interfacing.
Cassox: Wasn't there a thingy?
Chironex: Yeah, this thingy. Didn't you stick it into someone?
Cassox: I thought you stuck it in someone. Cool.
Like... only on Biohack. ~3~
Sorry for the interjection. Also, wondering if the skingun has any relevance in this, maybe? For seeding a matrix and local area with stem cells? :o
Have been meaning to bring up the skingun in a thread... But work and UC has kept me pretty busy. ~3~ also, maybe a tiny bit lethargic.
