I want to insert a tube inside of my body
This is a complicated procedure and I know it is. I've been researching dermis layers, fascia and the underlaying fat as well as safe and clean methods to do what I want to do.
Basically, I'm wanting to insert a tube that runs from the side bottom of a torso and up to the side of the ribs just underneath the armpit where I'm wanting to put a thermo-electric generator coated in epoxy resin so it's bio-friendly, I'm wanting to run wiring through this tube which will eventually come out of the body at the side bottom of the torso.
I think the best route would be for me to run it through a layer of fat so I would have to put a cap on the tube to ensure no bio matter ends up inside the tube.
One complication is I've to have monthly head and neck MRI scans and monthly chest x-rays and I'm not sure how exactly I prevent micro movement of the metal parts or even to prevent it being ripped out of the body (lead blanket?) but what I'm wanting to achieve is maximum and consistant-as-possible heat reaching hot side of the thermo-electric generator.
I've been looking into surgical procedures involving a tube but it seems that so far surgeons only really use tubes if they're for feeding and they don't really run them up and down the body but push them through the abdomen and into the stomach which is a lot more simple than what I would like to achieve.
I just think that even if such method of power generation isn't efficient then I'm at the very least capturing waste body energy. I mean I don't get it, humans have a body that wastes a lot of its energy yet people don't even think to harvest it.
Wouldn't it be cool if it was you, your phone or whatever else and you could say you're off grid with the power such devices needs but also be able to say that the energy used to power those devices comes from the body and not some solar panel or windmill or whatever?
Another thing I've wanted to do is implant a computer system, a raspberry pi zero which I would also coat in epoxy resin, at full idle state they only require 30 mA and at a semi-idle state only require 360 mA.
On the cold side of the thermo-electric generator I would like to install a heatsink that would stick out of the side of the body to provide outer environment cooling to it so that the generator has a great temperature gradient.
I know that there will be fluctuations in power and that there would be times when it may not even produce much but I have a downconverter that protects itself from burnouts so that it isn't at risk of burning the body when implanted, it can convert an unstable power source down to a stable 5v supply.
The end of the wiring coming out of the body I would like to have a female USB A socket.
