  • What an amazingly hopeful project! I'm very glad to see you've gotten success out of it. I did have a question for you, have you tried wearing over-ear headphones? The magnets in the pair I have are strong enough for me to feel in my finger magnet…
  • Hello, and welcome to the forum!  Its good to know that people interested in grinding are still finding this community. The more the merrier! I agree that the concerns you raised are indeed concerns, but I'm not sure that there are as pressing as …
  • I'm afraid I don't have any input about its depth (mine isn't visible and that's all I know) but I'm excited to hear about how it goes for you. It would be really cool to be able to show it to people and if it works then I'll plan on getting my seco…
  • The university Circuits 1 course I went through used a free book by Digilent (cofounded by one EE professor here at WSU and its headquarters are located in Pullman. Guess who supplied our circuit boards and software?). Its called Real Analog and you…
  • Amal, I think there's a space at the very end of that url that got incorporated in that hyperlink, and it broke. I'm quite excited to see all the stuff that is on Dangerous Things, and that the products list keeps being added to. Chances are that I'…
  • Welcome! I've found that most people I know also disapprove of grinding and the idea of becoming a cyborg via DIY methods, and so I was quite relieved to find this forum. I think you'll like it here too. Do you have a lot of experience with human a…
  • It can sure take a fair bit of time before feeling returns properly. I had a disk magnet implanted in my left ring finger and it was a full 5 days before I could feel a microwave, or anything. They say disk magnets are stronger than bar magnets, so …
  • While I'm not a climber, I do play the balalaika (stringed instrument) and that puts acute pressure on my disk magnet implant. For good while it hurt like all get out to do. Its been just over 5 weeks since I had it implanted and now I can only feel…
  • I had not thought about automotive microcontrollers in that way (ok, I haven't really thought about them at all). I'll be sure to look into that. And perhaps I should try getting a passive RFID chip and seeing how that works for me before I start …
  • I agree that 1 km seems pretty extreme. I'm counting on transmission through the skin cutting down on the range, and a heavy reliance on the software's ability to set and detect when the chip crosses perimeters. Although the idea of my rice cooker …
  • I'll work on that graph, maybe using different commercial inductors as well as different coils (more for my own use, optimizing the field for my finger). It should prove to be a good distraction for part of an afternoon. It might be a bit before I g…
  • Its been almost 5 full days since getting this magnet implanted in my finger, and today I got my first sensation from it. I was microwaving some hot pockets and I figured I'd see if I could pick anything up. At about 15 cm away from the glass I was …
  • Its now ~19 hours after the procedure and the pain is completely gone. My finger is still stiff and puffy, but not very sore when gently pressed on. Mr. Sticky
