  • I have been over this many times but I have yet to encounter anyone who would say to my face that I am damned for having implants. I live in a liberal area and that is likely a factor but I would invite discussion with someone of authority in theolo…
  • This can mess up cheap video recorders without distracting humans. https://hackaday.com/2018/09/12/unphotogenic-lighting-as-a-feature/ It is far from foolproof but the BBC might not want to pester you if they can't get good looking video. Some RG…
  • Here is a two-fer. I forgot to post the last show so I am adding that below and after that is the most recent show. We took a chance by reviewing some movies a few weeks ago, namely Realive, a bleak look at what could happen in the early days of hu…
  • I guess it is becoming time for a new computer. This live recording was filled with technical difficulties on my side. Tim and I talked about the implants currently available. We missed a few. Hopefully we can do another show about this in a year w…
  • Our thirteenth episode was about "Why we biohack." We wanted to revisit that since our opinions may have changed as we have grown.
  • Thank you for the link to the spreadsheet. I filled it out. Shared sheets like that are awesome for promoting the citizen science biohacking needs to see more of. Props to whoever started it.
  • @Imbellis, I think my salt content was higher than 0.9% which may be a contributing factor. Gold might be a worthwhile idea. I would be interested to see
  • 29 of my 30 magnets have failed the saltwater test in less than two months. Blog post with a graph.
  • I hope people see this code of conduct and go on to comment in a thread they might otherwise just lurk. If this is what helps people open up and contribute, or just mingle with their community, then it is pure awesome. This code isn't hampering any …
  • I waved my finger around a magnetic sphere so you can see it twisting under the skin, and get an idea of where I placed mine. It does not interfere with my day-to-day life.
  • I mentioned the water with excessive salt. I have NO idea if this had any effect on the test. I was hoping someone could clarify for me. When I mixed the salt water, I put a few grains of salt into my containers, added water, then tossed in a magne…
  • I started a batch of ten and two failed in 24 hours. A week later, I started a batch of 20 and eight failed within 48 hours. I suspected that my saline solution was not mixed well and all the salt collected at the bottom and compromised the coating…
  • When my magnet when it, it was a quick slip of a scalpel, gloved hands pushed the magnet in, a single stitch closed it up. Nice and neat. When it came out, there was a lot more blood. The mass surrounding my magnet was easily ten times the volume o…
  • @trroyyc, it is not the end of the world but you might have gnarly surgery in your future. Where are you getting your information that neodymium won't hurt you? My magnet removal [LINK]
  • @trroyyc, you are correct. There are fewer nerve endings in the earlobe than a fingertip. I don't have the same level of sensitivity compared to my finger magnet. Not by a long-shot. Plus, I can't really search around with my ears the way I can prob…
  • I started a saline test on ten magnets and also had one fail within 24 hours. The failure was in tap water with iodized table salt. I also have some in salt water with dish detergent. Each magnet has a separate container so they don't interact with …
  • I have 10ga lobes and I bought some cheap tunnels and cylindrical magnets to fit inside the tunnels. I have been able to feel the clippers while getting a haircut but that is about the only thing I have noticed. I do not know how such large magnets …
  • I have heard of treatments which temporarily eliminated fear so people could overcome phobias. I have unsuccessfully looked for the video of it in action. During that time, people were given a dose, then exposed to their trigger and coaxed to intera…
  • Welcome to the boards. What hacks/mods are you interested in and why?
  • These are on the site now https://supermagnetman.com/products/d1005b-10-tin
  • I am working on a long-range RFID project with the goal of implanting it. There would be no need to touch the reader anymore. Your car or house would recognize you before you got to the door.
  • That sounds incredible. If it does 1/4 of that, it would be game-changing. If the cooling tubes were implanted, the location shouldn't matter. The hands are a good place for lots of reasons, but an athlete, who only wants hydration and heat exchang…
  • I wonder if these cupping sets could help the folks making the tattoos, like the ones that glow in the dark. Maybe poking up the skin with the pigment ink and then cupping the area while there is some pigment on the surface. When the suction is rele…
  • Three shows in a row on cerebrolysin! The first time we got ourselves excited about it. Then we started taking it and gave our impressions. Now we're reviewing it a month after starting.
  • That is correct, outward pressure from the magnet could keep blood from flowing. Joints, like our knees and elbows, have all the extra skin on them so the joints can be flexed without creating that pressure. Adding padding should distribute the pre…
  • I like where you're going with this. The crushing of flesh between magnets is a problem because it starves the skin of blood flow. If you have enough pull on your internal magnet to attract a spike, I think you'll still be starving the area even …
  • Welcome to the forums. I don't think that a 26-year-old who is interesting in cyborgs is uninteresting. We are glad to have you here.
  • Tim and I were excited cerebrolysin in episode forty three so we orderd some. Here are our first impressions.
  • @chironex is being modest. He also did a great video about decellularizing animal parts.
  • I don't know if your idea will gain any traction. In seriousness though, our fingers evolved to be pretty good at picking things up sans modifications, but we regularly handle things much smaller than our ancestors. Whenever we fumble with tin…
