  • I think this would be great. It could be a resource for people interested in learning about biohacking, improve safety, and serve as a repository of information. But please, no paywalls!
  • @FireBreathingReptile said: 2. Are firefly tattoos bright enough to charge the europium powder? A firefly (or a few!) could be embedded in glow-powder-impregnated silicone to keep the glow powder charged, and to disperse the light from the firefl…
  • @IvoTheSquire I'm wondering if what you're talking about is more about quality of life/independence/not wanting to be a "vegetable" for hospital patients, where @Cassox's experience is more with biohackers and others interested in modifying themselv…
  • @IvoTheSquire I see, that makes sense. I wonder if the sense of hunger would really disappear if you weren't getting the right nutrient load? Clearly it's lessened, since it functions as an "easy" diet, but I imagine the body would figure it out b…

  • This is really cool, is anyone working on this sort of thing in the biohacking community? I remember seeing the "third thumb" a while back, but it seems to have disappeared. I'd personally be very interested, but I'm not sure where to start.
  • @Beano said: FYI Vivokey will be EMV capable and there are things supposedly in the works to partner up with a major company so hopefully sometime in the next few years we will be able to make payments with an implant. Yes, this is true, …
  • This is from a different forum, but it's the best summary I've seen. Tl;dr it can't really be done right now on more than a short-term basis. https://forum.dangerousthings.com/t/making-payments-with-an-implant/643
  • Same as Hunter, I really hope to be able to make it next year! This year I was out of the country for a work conference, this year I'll book the time as soon as dates are decided. A comment about the dates: I teach at a university, the dates tha…
  • Where will information be posted? I'd really like to make it this year, I need to plan ahead since I teach.
  • I'm a graduate student and an adjunct professor studying differential geometry. My current focus is on sub-Riemannian foliation theory. Also, I've done some programming and general computer science; I designed my own "macro"processor, but I'm stil…
  • This article was written by Rich Lee, who was the first (I think) to do this. Yes, they are subdermal, and they vibrate (producing sound) in response to an inductive coil worn around the neck. Basically you must have an external device to create the…
  • I'm definitely late, but can I get in on the next round? I'm also interested in having you install it, are you anywhere near New England?
  • I'm pretty sure the issue is your reader. The xEM is a low frequency (LF) rfid tag, which means it works in the 125 kHz range, while your phone and the pn532 readers are NFC devices, which use the high frequency (HF) 13.55MHz range. I haven't don…
