  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_MAEeniwzZg 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. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SjcMyicfrL8
  • 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 tiny sc…
  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Q-H88I6218 We have spoken about religion before but in the way that religion is in the periphery of almost everything. This episode was about where cyborgs and religion overlap and it was directly inspired by a threa…
  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I55LP-L201g We're broadcasting again. Stop by and see us live where you can ask us questions on the air or see our unedited past episodes. Of course, we have our repository of edited audio shows. [Show page link]
  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=st3C37vpX4U If you're lucky enough to see this link while we're recording, hop by. Afterward, you can see the recording there. As always, our show page has our edited podcasts. [Show page link]
  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=201zSA7weFQ&feature=youtu.be&t=1480 This show was about ambidexterity. The twist is that we broadcasted it live. This allows you to hear us unfiltered. Speaking of which, my dialog was picked up with an inexpe…
  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1m-2mAurai0 Today we're looking to the past to highlight some old school biohackers. Way old school. We're stepping up our social media presence, so anyone who wants their 2xCb fix on Twitter, here we are. [Link]
  • I derailed your thread, and you brought it back around again. Nicely done. Perhaps it will be easier to learn new devices through the implant. The most convincing argument for that I can conceive is that 99% of the time, my magnet doesn't give me a…
  • I would argue that there is a difference between a tool and a sense. When you get a magnet installed, your brain associates the new sensations with new input criteria because it's always active. This is different from a tool which only works when yo…
  • I've built my own distance sensor which actuated my implanted magnet, and I couldn't get any information which couldn't have been transmitted through a vibrating contraption. Later on, I made a vibrating distance sensor in a flashlight handle, and p…
  • You're becoming popular among the Hackaday writers. https://hackaday.com/2018/02/14/biohacking-lactose-intolerance/ Nicely done.
  • * For me, biohacking is a mentality of improving myself, for personal reasons, through technological means. It also carries a sense of community and openness for safety and collaboration. * I started biohacking because I liked the idea of expandin…
  • Applying hot glue to a nickel-coated magnet can cause the coating to flake off. Adding molten glass probably won't do any better but I would like to see the effect.
  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Hpqy7LPkaQ It was no coincidence that Tim and I recorded an episode about cerebrolysin shortly after @chironex published his guide to cerebrolysin on YouTube and here [Link]
  • @countseven, that's awesome! I had to go and make things complicated.
  • This is just brainstorming, right? High-altitude air has less oxygen per liter than sea-level, and I assume that's the effect you are going for. Low-pressure air may have different properties than oxygen-depleted air so be conscious of that. Oxyge…
  • https://youtube.com/watch?v=KVc9c2ySxRQ If we examine life, the universe and everything, we always come to forty-two. So, episode forty-two is about the meaning of life. This episode is more science-fiction than religion or science fact.
  • Our biohacker/grinder community is a group of people willing to share information about improving human performance through technological means. We keep each other safe with warnings as well as information. I don’t have any strong preference how pe…
  • I think Benbeezy tested the FDA16 epoxy. https://www.atomadhesives.com/index.php?route=product/search&search=fda16 They have both been tested in vivo so there are options. I believe they sell direct but I know they sell through Amazon and even e…
  • Most epoxy is not biosafe. Unless it is medical grade epoxy meant for medical applications, don't risk it. The stuff you buy at the hardware store probably isn't going to be healthy. In my first post of this thread, I mentioned the Atom Adhesives ve…
  • @Cassox, for the foreseeable future, my blog won't have as much tech stuff. My company sent me 1,700 miles to Reno, NV away at 100% travel. There will be some eletronic and electric business cards soon but biohacking isn't that easy in Nevada since …
  • @DarkReformer, a regular Bluetooth headset won't be ready to handle the kind of power necessary to vibrate a magnet through the skin. It will take some kind of amplifier. As @Benbeezy has mentioned, a transformer may also be useful for generating a …
  • I've heard mixed results from tragus implants as well. I wanted to experiment with bone conduction hearing aids on my own so I had a magnet installed behind my right ear. http://www.24hourengineer.com/2017/07/2017-07-29-sa-magnet-implant-right-ear.h…
  • That's a good way to look at it! I recommend starting with an Arduino UNO or a clone and those motors. Pick up some 2n3904 or 2n3906 transistors. Arduino Uno [eBay Link] Disc vibrators [eBay link] 3904 transistors [eBay Link] 3906 transistors [eBay …
  • What's your experience with microcontrollers?
  • Those seem like a good place to start. I don't know your experience with microcontrollers so be aware that these are 3V. Otherwise, they're pretty easy to use and you'll definitely be able to feel them. They didn't put a current rating on the motors…
  • Gotcha! Unfortunately, the only ones I've seen on the market are those bulky ones with batteries and motors. I guess you'll have to be a trailblazer. Do you already have a micro dermal to use with this? If so, buy a regular piercing bead with a flat…
  • Do you want something like a piercing bead with a vibrator built into it? I think I've seen something like that at Spencer's or a sex shop. They're bulky because they have batteries and a vibrator motor. What do you want to use to control the vibrat…
