  • Thank you for the details @ThermalWinter, it is very much appreciated. My friend has now seen this post and is much more comfortable with the prospects. There were too many unknown unknowns. We'll both keep an eye out for signs of failure and I…
  • So far my understanding is: 1) Tiny surface imperfections in the coating allow your salty bodily fluids to penetrate the magnet and gradually degrade it's structural integrity. 2) A potential energy difference can form between the outermost TiN …
  • Definitely iodine or chlorhexidine pre-procedure. My statement about updating the Wiki stands. I don't know if it's common practice, but I was looking for after-care recommendations and I followed the advice listed there. If we want to prevent …
  • This company called Viatomtech makes a wearable that handles most of the vital signs you're interested in: https://www.viatomtech.com/checkme-o2 I can't find very much information on it, but reviews appear good, and it's been available for mo…
  • Saw a recent post on the DT forums relating to this: https://forum.dangerousthings.com/t/unable-to-overwrite-nfc-chip/3523 The verdict seems to be that it has little chance of success, and if it does work irreversibly activates the lock bits …
  • The only implant I've seen that allows you to check a vital sign is temperature sensing RFID tags in glass capsules. Unfortunately, most of them are configured to operate at 134kHz, so you need a special reader (can't use NFC on your phone at 13.56M…
  • Most of my experience is in the realm of implants, so maybe others can weigh in on other types of augmentation. I get a good amount of use out of my RFID and magnet implants. I primarily use RFID tag implants for access control (phone and car) …
  • Hey UnkownVoice, welcome! I'm a little confused about what exactly you would define as an "optimization". Are you limiting your inquiry to "Prosthetics, wearables, and haptics", or would implants, genetic mods, and supplements/nootropics count?
  • Just to clarify, the VivoKey Spark is the smaller variant in a biocompatible glass capsule. I suspect Moonman was referring to the Flex One, which does have a more involved install process. Personally, I'm a huge fan of Amal and DT. I suspect h…
  • I'm down to keep some decrepit old threads on last ditch life support in a community this small. I'm near Philadelphia.
  • @Cassox said: It's seldom beneficial. It's better to keep it clean and dry. It will heal much more quickly. Maceration often leads to failure. If regular application of triple anti-bac isn't the best course of action for after-care becau…
  • Agreed. Remagnetizing in-situ does not seem viable. I've learned more about the manufacturing process of Nd magnets since my initial post. It seems you could remove the magnet from it's installation spot, remagnetize it, then reimplant without …
  • I recommend you check out the Partner Map on DT https://dangerousthings.com/partners/ Looks like there are two other artists in the area, Pokt Piercing and Body Exotic. They're both in San Jose.
  • Any input you can provide is valuable. The electrical aspects of building your own magnetizer seem sound, but the effect of exposing your body to a magnetic field of that intensity is beyond my purview. It would probably be a better idea to remove t…
  • I would advise against doing that. It's a valid question, and this is the kind of place you should be asking it. I just want to share some of my thoughts. A physically larger magnet doesn't necessarily allow you to feel more sensation than a sm…
  • I think by sensor magnets in the ears, he means tragus implants that are used to convey sound transmitted by an inductive loop hung around the neck.
  • @CitrusBolt That's a good point. It appears that some Amiibos are set up to be rewritable so you can save character progress to them. Maybe the memory isn't permanently set to read-only with lock-bits, it just has a read-only indicator in the cap…
  • Welcome H311B01, glad you found us. I really appreciate your enthusiasm, but I'm with JakePunk on this one. The implants you're interested in are all pretty top tier. I would plan to devote a significant chunk of time (3 months to a year) to ea…
  • Ha, I saw another one of your posts on this subject and PM'd you before I realized you posed the question here. So I did some research and it appears the Amiibos use an NTAG215 chip, whereas most implants use NTAG216 chips. The major difference…
  • @chironex Thanks for all the footwork you're doing for science, and especially thanks for constantly updating us on your progress. I always look forward to your next post.
  • @nothot I suspect that we both feel the similarly about the imperfections of the human body. I'm not advocating for the viewpoint that God created humanity, just working to understand those who do. My cursory research did not uncover any sp…
  • I'm a Technologist by trade, so the transition from technology being part of my life to part of my body was an easy one. I suppose the first stepping stone that lead me to this point was reading an article that referenced FM-2030, followed by …
  • Just out of curiosity, what are you looking to get out of your interaction with the forum? Did you plan to come and learn new things, engage with the community socially, or maybe acquire resources to engage in your own augmentations? I came ori…
  • If you're willing to get a voluntary implant that will improve upon your natural abilities, it's as though you're denying the perfection of our natural forms. I feel it's only fair to specify that you mean Christianity when generalizing like th…
  • I feel that science is the fallback point which the grinding community relies on to provide a natural immunity to fascism. Scientific progress of the kind that we are engaging in is an inherently collectivist endeavor. Any out-group that we encounte…
  • I hope I'm not being unreasonable here, but I was fine without any pain management. You already have some experience with implantation. As long as you can manage any anxiety beforehand you should be fine.
  • I wouldn't be too concerned. I had mine done a month ago and the pain became dull by the second day and only barely noticeable by the fifth. I'd avoid the cold water bath because it will make your skin contract, which probably isn't helping it heal.…
  • Hey RaelAdir. It's possible the case that holds the card has some functionality as well. As far as I know, these contactless payment methods have three parts: >an immutable ID portion >a rewritable memory portion >a coil Someti…
  • In prototyping scenarios, I often use 3D printing to create enclosures for electronics. PCL could be used as a casing for implantable electronic assemblies to soften edges (although the underlying components would need to be biocompatible, consideri…
  • Not directly related, but still an interesting development on this front: [https://www.marcteyssier.com/projects/mobilimb/] I feel that the MobiLimb could be easily reverse engineered as well. There is a bit more documentation on the actual d…
