First post - implant as digital input(think bottlenose)
Hey everyone, it's my first post here, and I am excited to be a part of this community of trailblazers.
So here's what I'm thinking - after seeing how niel harbisson developed Sonochromitism because of his augmentation, and possibly seeing something about using wearables with haptic feedback to develop an innate sense of magnetic north, I had an idea.
Using a magnetic implant as an input in a similar way to the bottlenose, but sending data from the internet via a device tethered to a smartphone connected to a coil, perhaps we could develop an innate sense of whatever data we choose to relay.
The device itself should be trivial to build, even for someone with my meager skills so my questions are
1) what information would you deem worthy of 24/7 awareness? The idea fascinates me, but I can't actually think of anything I'd want to know so intimately
2) how complex do you think the information related could be? For example, do you think Morse code could eventually become intuitive knowledge if it were related through vibrations in your flesh instead of sound? If so, do you think it would be more effective to initially cause the device to simply relay each keystroke you make on your laptop or phone via Morse code to make it easier to draw the connection between language and the vibrations?
