New Magnet Design Beta
Hey everyone! It's time..
Science for the Masses (@Cassox and @glims), partnered with Dangerous Things (@Amal) are opening up a limited time pre order of the first magnets specifically designed to be used as implants.
This is basically a closed prerelease. The link below leads to a preorder form on the Dangerous Things website that allows only you guys to get the magnets before we start selling them to profesional body mod artists. This is only for a limited time and this link is the only way to get to that website. Please don't share the link with anyone who is not on this board. The reason for this is that the price that we are offering for the beta is less expensive than what we will be selling it to modders at. This is just for you guys.
Now, let's discuss the details a bit.
The magnets are 3mm x 1mm neodymium with Titanium Nitride coating. By using a unique process cooked up by Cass, we have managed to get these magnets to maintain a nice high gauss strength. This became a point after we found that most coating processes have a tendency to reduce the strength of the magnets.
The magnets have been tested for fouling resistance, cytotoxicity, resistance to shear horse, and have also been tested on humans :) We've compared this magnet to parylene coated magnets and other well known providers in all these categories and it comes out head and shoulders above anything that we have had available to us.
For what it's worth, this is the first coated magnet that I have felt comfortable putting inside my body. Anyone who's read any of my posts knows how I get about biocompatable coatings..
Anyway, here's the link, have fun :) If you guys have any questions, I'll be checking in regularly to answer them.
