Hey everyone, I'm jamcar23 and my account just got approved, so here I am. I must say I'm very glad to have found this community. I've been thinking about implants lately, but after finding this site it's clear I should do some more research.
I'm located in Winter Park, Florida. If anyone else is too, let me know.
If you all don't mind, I have a few questions for this community:
1.) why would/do you have implants? Are the useful? Are they worth it?
2.) how have the affected your life? Has it positive, negative, or neutral?
3.) how far would take the biohacking / implantation?
I have two implants, a magnet from Steve Haworth and an NFC tag from DangerousThings. The magnet is fast becoming a part of me. Sometimes I catch myself feeling around magnetic fields after something grabs my attention without thinking of it as a magnet, just another sense. That has been a really neat journey. The NFC tag is a layer of security for my phone to keep prying eyes away.
I am an engineer so it's nice to have mods that don't show and I feel like I really got them for me because I don't advertise them day to day the way that piercings and tattoos do.
I have told only a handful of people and mostly it's been positive but I've only told people who I thought would handle it well. One coworker was weirded out and I thought he would be fascinated.
I wouldn't take the biohacking further than socially noticeable because my career is on the line. If everyone started getting cyber eyes implanted I'd be right there but currently even a wearable computer could be seen as a risk to my job.
Ultimately they have been worth it. I wouldn't get a second magnet implant because I can sense what I wanted with the first. I wouldn't get an RFID tag because I can do anything I want with just the NFC.
Welcome to the forums.
It's very clear I have a lot to learn...
If anyone has experimented with >=4 magnets on a glove I would like to hear about it. If not, I'll get some bargain bin magnets and a glove.
