Hi guys, sorry to jump in with this so late, have been gone for a while. As mentioned berfore, am a tattoo artist and piercer. This is a note to useing titanium in implants as I think mentioned erlier on in the thread: Do not use it uncoated, about 4% of all people have an allergie to it... I found this through piercing practice, so useing it under the skin could have bad concequences. People with other metal allergies such as nickel, cobalt and chrome allergies stand at a high risk of allergy to titanium.
That was from a while back, I remember seeing it when the article was first published. I wonder how many of us are io9ers? Or follow any Gawker media outlet for that matter. Here is something extremely relevant to this thread from Gizmodo.
I think it would be quite hard to bioproof these though unless the elastic polymer is already by chance biosafe. I tried to access the original paper but the journal decided it would like 50 dollars for a 24 hour period which I think is quite ridiculous. Anyone have access to the Wiley journal through their school or some such?
Thank you, It's truethat I have somewhat limited knowledge of electronics. So, silicon would be better suited for afixed item, like the actual implant, rather than the wiring? I had also considered wireless communicationbetween implants, which would negate the need for any subcutaneous wires. Depending on the implant's function, that maypresent a security problem though. I'llread up on the subject and see if there is anything that might be more feasiblefor implant communication.
