Building implants at home?
I'm pretty new to biohacking and I'm still waiting to get my first implant. Having said that, I'm really interested in building my own implants in the future as I have the required knowledge and skill (that is in electronics and especially programming), but I just can't wrap my head around the process of turning a working electronic circuit into a bio-compatible implant.
First of all, is it even possible to do something like that at home? I have seen someone actually put a full sized PCB with the circuit into their forearm enclosed into some bio-compatible material, but I don't really find that a good solution as the implant (and your skin / arm) could get damaged very easily (at least that's what it looks like). I would rather have the circuit be put into a glass capsule and implanted using an injector, but of course this isn't always a plausible solution as not many circuits are small enough to fit into a ~3 mm x 14 mm capsule.
So the second thing I thought about doing is putting the circuit onto a thin PCB-like material that would be able to bend to the shape of your arm (or whatever part of the body you're implanting it into) kinda like the UKI (now VivoKey) from dangerousthings.com.
And if none of these methods were possible I would at least want to make the PCB as small as possible, so it wouldn't be (very) noticeable under the skin, and then enclose it in some sort of bio-compatible material. But what kind of material to use for an enclosure?
