Implantable edison project
edited September 2015 in Coatings, transdermals, other implants
Tomorrow my parts arrive for this thing - the edison itself + breakout board and inductive charging receiver plus lipo.
After some testing and configuration i'll be wanting to get it coated and then after yet more testing i'll start looking into the implantation procedure.
First thing i'll be using it for is probably data storage.
With a bit of work on the UI to give a voice interface, it should be possible to walk into a room with someone else using it and suddenly hear "Gareth Nelson is near by" and similar.
On the software side of things, it's configured to automatically connect to an open wifi network and broadcast avahi advertisements so I can login over SSH.
What i've done is taken the edison and the mini breakout board, attached a lipo to the breakout board (it has a battery charger integrated) and plugged in a Qi to micro USB charger then wrapped it up in plastic film and painted with liquid tape to seal it.
In terms of size, I don't have a measuring tape to hand but here's a picture:
Sadly my soldering skills suck.
If it's just a charger, isn't it just a matter of wiring in the +-5V traces according to USB standards? Please don't think I'm being a nay-sayer this time, I srsly want to see some cool GitS shit come from this particular project!
For those not familiar with it, the edison itself only has the 70-pin connector on it, to get USB you need to use a breakout board.
Annoying as I asked around in the local LUG and got told that numerous people attempted to setup a hackerspace and couldn't find a venue.
