  • Oh no I really liked your placement! Why did you wind up pulling it?
  • That's my thought process. The surface area of mine gets bigger when i flip it over the wrong way. I think that if you took out the reflective backing they would be waaaay brighter due refraction through the skin. If one came our that was the same size or bigger and had no shielding I would buy it instantly.
  • > @mercrutio said: > > Yes, this is true, I'm actually part of the Vivokey beta. But for the moment, despite the Vivokey having the right hardware, we can't expect to use it for EMV payments. Exactly. I am a part of the beta as well. These first ones will not be able to and in fact when they are they will have to be set up…
  • 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.
  • I listened to an interview Amal did where he talked about the creation of the tags. When he first started looking around for personal use he found all these cheap suppliers using cheap materials with no quality control and using non biosafe epoxys. His original intention was to create something for himself that he would…
  • Those would definitely be too small. There's a fine balance between too big and too small. That's the reason why the most recommended size is 1x3mm. Yes, smaller magnets have less mass and will more easily react to weaker fields. But if they are too small they wont be strong enough to react well to anything other than…
  • @nothot As in stacking them first and then coating them? Thats an interesting idea. If the resin is rigid enough it might keep them from sliding. Although i have seen that a lot of them tend to soften up a little after enough time in vivo. But with an epoxy coating your primary defense is the epoxy. However, I would still…
  • The reason that smaller magnets are better for sensing is that larger magnets have too much mass to pick up more slight vibrations. Think of a large block magnet. Will you be able to feel it vibrating from an electrical cord next to it? Most likely not. The reason is that with more mass, comes a higher energy cost to make…
  • @Crucible Actually the problem of them rupturing around the edges was a problem with the first dip coated ones. The new injection molded ones he sells have a very long success rate due to a more even coating. He also uses a much tougher silicone than he used too.
  • SMM magnet just came out and is mostly untested. I believe @nothot Is the first person to implant one just a few days ago. Historically speaking, just about every manufacturer of TiN magnets there is has been tried and very few individuals have had a long term success rate. It is just too difficult to get a perfect coating…
  • Q1: I don't see why there's a problem with getting the flexNT as a first time as long as you are prepared. Keep in mind that the implant process is a lot more traumatic than a needle implant that is a lot easier for people to go through with for the first time. Q2: The implant location on the hand is due to the implants…
  • I kept trying to upload to the site but couldnt get it. Here is a pic I posted to imgur. I adjusted it a little so it looks like it did in real life. https://imgur.com/a/J8oa6
  • @ama I get the same thing. Mine is visible with just a little darkness.
  • Hello everyone! I am sorry I have been away for so long. Circumstances in my personal life got in the way and I couldnt post for awhile, then after I could I was so busy that I didn't have the mental energy. I bought the V2 the morning it came out and implanted as soon as I got it, so I was probably one of the first people…
  • Unless you've been through an MRI or something out of the ordinary that could cause it to lose magnetism, pretty much the most likely scenario would be that the coating failed and it is breaking down. Depending on who made the magnet, there are different types of silicone and some will break down faster than others. But…
  • What kind of magnet is it? There are quite a few accounts of people having magnets that grew weaker but otherwise were showing signs of nothing else. However, upon removal it was discovered that the coating on the magnet had failed and the magnet had begun to break down. I ask what magnet you have because some magnets have…
  • @Pyro4571 I have a haworth thats about 10 months old, and I just put in one of Cassox's Pellucid magnets a week ago. They have helped me see if certain circuits are receiving power and I can always tell if electromechanical motors and actuators are functioning properly. Obvously there are better ways to check these things,…
  • I'm an aircraft mechanic. I've actually used my magnets for troubleshooting problems with aircraft and equipment way more than I thought I would.
  • @ranjanabhishek089 All the failed attempts at coating with titanium in the past were not done by individuals. They were contracted out to professional companies.
  • @Cassox Haworth's are definitely not gold anymore.
  • I wonder if you could use petroleum jelly as lube. It has anti-bacterial properties and is the main ingredient in things like neosporin.
  • @chironex Do they ship to the US without a prescription or any issues? If so thats amazing. I swear I was looking for so long for a trustworthy source.

  • @aidoneus In my experience the bigger needle didnt hurt much more but it was definitely harder to get it in. They are kinda sticky going in as you have dry skin and a dry needle with no lubrication to allow it to slide once you puncture as your skin will be tight around the needle and not allow blood to act as lube.…
  • @Bentpins My problem was that I put it a little too deep. I still dont think it would have been much of a problem but the location was right against the side of the largest tendon so it kinda caused it to lay a little sideways. After it flipped and i realised it was pretty hard to flip it back I decided to redo it.…
  • I would NOT recommend buying the bulk powder you see listed when you search for bulk. I almost bought some of that until I did more digging and found that almost every one of those are scam sites. If they send you something at all it probably wont be lidocaine. I would trust the dark web more but you still dont know what…

  • @thetarn I've never heard the clicking unless I try to make it happen. Even then, sometimes its hard to do. I have to shake it just right and very forcefully. Sometimes I cant do it at all. I dont think you'd have anything to worry about.
  • Whew had a scare! My v1 yellow and v2 have seemed about the same brightness but the v2 has a slightly larger surface area. However, I think I installed my v2 a little too deep. My v1 is an easily visible lump just under the skin. The location is perfect. However, despite the larger size my v2 is hard to find or feel. Its…
  • There will be more soon. That was just the amount he sent to start off with.
  • I havent implanted mine yet but it looks very nice. The resin is crystal clear and you can see a nice shiny coat of TiN beneath. Looks like the coating mold didnt cause any sharp edges either. It reminds me of a Haworth magnet with a thinner coating. I have a Haworth implanted already so when I get around to implanting it…
  • @Semilovr12 I assume you are referring to the way they rattle. There is space between the layers of glass in the implant and it is natural for them to make a little noise. @AlexSmith I was wondering if in the future there was a way to keep this from happening? Maybe a drop of silicone in the bottom of the borosilicate tube…
