  • It took me some time to be able to lift ANYTHING. be patient and don't play with it! let it heal for 2 months before you go trying to stick things to it or feel around anything.
  • https://m.youtube.com/watch?list=LLyDnvs1Vw46bO1-qGJrUluQ&v=vV5I8XIRNSc Here is the youtube video of the led eye I spoke of. And yeah right now it's better then nothing. But untill the tech gets small enough or we developed a new power source I'll stick to making cool novelty eyes. The novelty eyes are what intrested me…
  • The only problem is that most prosthetic eyes are actually quite small. They fill the cavity with a sphere that the muscles are anchored to, then the prosthetic is placed over top of that. It's shaped kinda like an almond with a concave side and a convex side. I saw someone fit a small led inside one but upon talking with…
  • @glims @Cassox I'm gone for awhile and nothings happened! What ever became of the resin or epoxy coating idea? I still think it would be the best idea if you can find a biosafe mix.
  • I like this project! And I would think with a purpose built coil you could get much better results.
  • That sounds like it could use even MORE power than a display. The display don't have to be complex, just enough to show the time, aside from a single led using a blinking code to tell the time I think a display is the best option.
  • I think a continuous weekly update would be cool, but jesus man resize these photos!
  • @Cassox , sorry for the slow reply, no the sutures are still in, The swelling has just gone down a good bit, I had covered it in some antibiotic ointment earlier that day so it did look a little nasty in the picture.
  • Update, so I've had this thing in me for 27 hours now and all I can say is its amazing! About an hour ago I turned on the microwave and thought "what the heck, let me see if I can feel anything!" And I could feel a feint sensation! It was really weird, almost like a buzzing feeling but not quite. So out of curiosity I go…
  • @Cassox he made three separate knots, yeah I wasn't paying very close attention when he did it as I was talking with another guy in the room about the circadia implant they saw a couple months ago. And I made absolutely sure that he didn't autoclave it, he did a cold soak in some solution I can't remember the name of which…
  • That picture was taken after about 2 1/2 hours, and just as a heads up there is no discernible bump or bulge where the magnet is. The piercer got the magnet a little closer to the center of my finger pad then I wanted, would it be advised to carefully move it back with a second magnet? Or just leave it? God I sound like…
  • @glims, I meant a reed switch, I don't know where my head was! It's limiting in the sense that to turn the watch on you would have to either have a magnet implant or touch one to the spot where the switch is. But I think it's a pretty good idea, and along with a hard, clear, biosafe coating you have eliminated all seams…
  • @glims aren't you working on epoxy or resin coatings? How is that coming along, because I think that could solve all of the problems with housing this implant. Just stick a hall monitor (a magnetic switch I belive) and you have a sturdy, completely sealed implant. The only worry I would have is possible overheating on the…
  • Is it possible to have the case plated in TiN? But you would still run into the problem of the seams around your viewing area. Would a clear resin/epoxy coating work? Now that I think about it, that could be a good option. And it should be just as strong, if not stronger, than the case. I know I've heard whispers about…
  • just going to put this here, interesting ideas! Just another way to possibly recharge a battery or capacitor. http://www.biomedical-engineering-online.com/content/13/1/79
  • Why would you put this in a hard case? If you don't match the curve of the arm exactly you will have a hard edge pressing upon your skin. Why not instead just use a flex pcb and coat the whole assembly in some flexible bioproof coating like silicone ( I don't know if that's the best option, it's just the first one that…
  • I personallyou would only pay $100-$200 for this. Look at a cheap Casio watch, how thick is it? The answer, not very. If you take off all that plastic you will see a circuit board smaller then a postage stamp. An this thing keeps time just as good as any higher priced watch. Now of course you would be messing with larger…
  • I must point out that the display itself would probably not be as thin, but the traces would be, and likely with a proper solder station you could do some right small smd work which would make the whole thing more appealing to me peraonally. If I'm paying over $150-$200 for a finished product I don't expect it to be ANY…
  • The hardest part of that would be the batteries, everything else yoU could make super thin. Traces could be on a flex pcb (paper thin) the led's could probably shine through the skin if implanted at the right depth. And the flex pcb don't have to be very wide at all. I think it's completely possible!
  • depending on how you are putting all the parts together, and how big the next size of coils are, I see no problem with going to a larger size. Now I could be horribly wrong but couldn't you just sit the coil down on top of the battery in whatever housing you are using? think of the way wireless chargers are positioned in…
  • Man this sounds cool! If there is another meeting sometime I'll have to see about attending. I am planning a trip out to San Fransisco sometime next year... hmm, I smell a side stop!
  • I already looked at the link but thank you Proxy, and I meant this more for other grinders around the area. If I cant find a professional to do it, then I would rather have a forum member who has implanted one before do it. And yes I know that the body mod artists can't use anesthesia, and I would never want to be put to…
  • If I was to design this for logging body temp, I would make the coil a patch to could stick to your clothes, then have the reader mounted on your belt or in a pocket. The only problem I see with that would be snagging the wires on stuff, but you could also place it on the inside of your shirt so that would be mitigated.…
  • So no issues with any phones, smart or otherwise? I do love my S4. The only problem I could think of would be the old TV and computer screens, but I wasn't sure about anything new.
  • My thoughts exactly, the hall sensor seems like the best idea. Although the pressure switch is appealing, I don't think it would be a great idea, as the human body is quite squishy and tends to flex and move a lot.
