  • @JohnDoe why do you want to read brains? Are you thinking like a brain-machine interface to control something?
  • Looks like I'm late to the party on the thread. @Zwytechhacker, I would suggest NOT trying this out on anyone or yourself. My reasoning is that you want to cut off skin then poke holes in the exposed inerds underneath. You are begging for some type …
  • That looks pretty wild! All of the coolest work is done by defense contractors. I wonder if it could measure a person's sweat to see if they were dehydrated also.
  • Scientists are starting to think that epigenetics plays a role in passing down broad context memories to offspring like @eggit said. You can theoretically pass down methylation patterns in your genes that will affect how they are read by the cells i…
  • Hey let's be nice :P Make sure to tag me when you make that post
  • @Zwytechhacker, You ant to remove all of the skin in the area to implant the device? From your figure it looks like you are working on a Pip-Boy :P  I'll hold on until you make a thread so we can talk more! What exactly are you working on @JohnDoe?
  • @Wyldstorm, what does it cost to sequence a genome now-a-days? I heard the cost was somewhere around $1000, yikes! Still better than the millions it took previously though. In a few years I bet it will be cheaper and it will become a routine procedu…
  • @Wyldstorm- What exactly are you wanting to change about your genetic makeup? How would you go about doing it? @DmLawrence- What kind of data would you want to keep on the drive? My first thought is it would be a great way to store medical records …
  • I thought I had read once that some magnets could sense wi-fi, but that doesn't seem to be the case then. I guess that wouldn't make sense because then you would have an almost constant sensation with the prevalence of wi-fi. @Meanderpaul you are r…
  • @tekniklr- This is my first hearing of NorthPaw but it seems like it would be useful, especially for someone like me who is always trying to figure out the direction I'm facing around the city. Maybe I'm a bit naive, but the whole idea seems more co…
  • Hey all, I know I'm late to the party but I just saw this thread. I live In Brooklyn and I just started grad school for biomedical engineering, so I am looking to get involved with an innovative project that really pushes the boundaries of what is p…
  • What kind of implants do you guys currently have? Sorry for not posting in the thread sooner, been crazy with school stuff. I'm actually going to be starting a PhD in the fall for biomedical engineering now. Hoping I can get into work involving impl…
  • That group looks like it is doing great work! It always warms my heart to see people using science to help others (cheesy :P) I'm hoping that ChemE type work is desirable in the field. Or maybe it will be in the future as the technology progresses. …
  • I really wish I had taken EE as an undergrad. I would love to get into work with bionics and prosthetics, but I just don't have the background for it. I've talked to a few professors at various schools and they want straight up MechE or EE to do tha…
  • I am at Kent State right now in Ohio. I'm hoping to do my PhD somewhere on the east coast so that I'll be immersed in the recent biotech boom (NYC, Pittsburgh, etc..) If I hit the educational lottery I'd like to get my PhD in engineering for that sw…
  • Sadly my school doesn't have any organizations. I'm starting to kick myself for not doing an engineering undergrad. At the time chemistry seemed like the way to go because I wanted to be a pharmacist. I'm glad to see other people out there in colleg…
