  • @otptheperson there is not much need for quite that much entropy really but it is really useful for things like encryption, cryptocoin mining and other stuff that needs random numbers also it is useful to have a big pool of entropy to pull from if you are running a big server with a lot of VM's because VM's generate no…
  • I was looking at bionic but I was hesitant to set one up unless I had something truly impact-full to use it for but it doesn't seem to terribly difficult to do If anyone has something that needs that kind of computing power. also using the amazon servers woks well for a lot of things. I attempted to write my crowd funding…
  • Just saw that there was some need for electrodes for this project and thought I would let everyone know that there is a Russian company that will sell medical grade pacemaker electrodes to anyone the part numbers for them are BIP-01-IMZ and BIP-02-IMZ theres plenty of places to get them from about the google. Found them a…
  • I have been doing some thinking about what would be a good place to start learning and defining the scope of how and what I plan to do to start learning all there is to learn with this whole parallel computing thing and I have come up with a goal to work towards. I want to attempt to prove/disprove the infinite monkey…
  • I could be way off, it was a guess. Im sure there has been a pretty big insurgence since bitcoin came about but theres still only about 5 programs that have actually been written for mining plenty of forks though. I will let you know if I need any help for sure, I too am not so great with the low level languages but that's…
  • I am not sure I understand what you are asking, erlang is a programming language and it is supported by this system.
  • This project is predominantly a research exercise at the beginning, each node contains a dual core CPU, an FPGA, and what is essentially an GPU. this means to fully understand how to maximize its output you must have a strong knowledge of all three and be able to assign tasks appropriately. and then it takes on an entire…
  • I plan to build it should the crowd funding succeed or not, I just ordered the master node and the first 3 slave nodes this morning. I am reaching out to a lot of different communities that I contribute to beyond biohack.me as well hoping that it will work. If crowd funding works it cuts the build time down from years to…
  • Yeah they are pretty amazing little boards! just one of them is fairly powerful in its own right. its the cross between a processor and fpga and the epiphany that makes it so unique and amazing. it really is a perfect platform for learning a ton of different things all packed in to a tiny little package. Your idea for a…
  • That is a pretty good idea, It is a pretty common practice for fighters to mold ceramic shin guard to their arms for just this purpose, also arm guards were worn by people for this purpose for a very long time. this is just taking a solution that has already been proven useful and integrating it in to the body. 
  • @glims, you point out some very valid issues, honestly as humans we have some pretty stellar armor already built in, and augmenting it with additional protection is only really needed on a case by case basis and you usually know when you are stepping in to a situation where you are going to need that extra protection. I…
  • @proxy, I'm not sure but that's how we do it at work one of the guys I work with fixes them all so I can ask him if he knows. I'm sure its not that hard, usually you can see whats wrong with electronics by just looking for the scorch marks or what piece is broken in half. I always tell people to go high end soldering iron…
  • Honestly if I shoot something I prefer that the bullet be stopped by what I shot. because its not the bullet that kills you is the trauma of having something slammed in to you at ridiculous speeds. implanting ballistic armor would only aid in getting yourself killed. set that aside for a second and think about what happens…
  • It would also be an issue trying to get a tattoo artist to give you a tattoo like this as well, I have been trying to get a UV sleeve for some time, I want to get a circuit board design done that will only show up under UV light. But the majority of shops aren't sold that the ink is safe and wont do it... everyone is…
  • @proxy, No problem, just watch out. it will consume ALL of your time if you get in to it lol, especially once you start trying to get things manufactured. a high end soldering iron makes all the difference. I use metcals because they are heated using RF which allows it get to the right temperature and no hotter really fast…
  • I have yet to encounter an alarm tripping from my implants but now I want to find a tag in the store and write it to my hand just to see if I can get it to go off. 
  • also metcal makes the best soldering Irons I have ever used they are very expensive I just payed $200 for a sp 200 and its an obsolete model new ones go for $800+ but they are worth every penny and more once you use one you will never willingly use a cheap soldering iron again. 
  • @proxy , Start by learning how to solder and buying a nice soldering iron, then become very good friends with it lol, I tell everyone to start by building your own test equipment. there are some good kits for sale online (ebay/ sparkfun/ adafruit/ etc.) everyone in hardware needs at least basic testing equipment like a…
  • yeah, that should work fine. 
  • I have found where you implant it effects the usability of the tag a bit. if you follow the youtube implant procedure and put it straight in the middle of the skin between the finger and the thumb it makes it difficult to use but if you implant it parallel to the index finger it make it a lot easier to use. but you should…
  • Id talk to directorx about it he has magnetic ear implants I believe. and they work via an inductive loop worn around the neck like this one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Invisible-Wireless-Micro-Spy-Earpiece-Secret-Covert-Mini-Headphone-Bug-/251648527673?pt=Bluetooth_Wireless_Products&hash=item3a976bcd39 I wold assume wearing…
  • Had a little Issue with the order processing system (all fixed now), but everyone's chips shipped out this morning :) thanks for all of your support!
  • you could defiantly fit the whole thing in to a not terribly obnoxious sized bracelet but the cost to manufacture something like that would be pretty high, you would need flex pbc and a custom battery but it not beyond the scope of things that could be done.
  • this falls under the exact same concept as the magnetic sense trainer I have been working on. only difference he runs the coil up to his finger instead of bringing his finger to the coil. 
  • Yes this is the regular price and permanent promo code for the biohack.me community. The only reason the price will change will be to lower the price as we are able to build them in larger quantities. it is my hope that we will be able to bring the price down some around late May as I am working with Hack Miami on setting…
  • I want a cybernetic left side. I use the right side of my body for fine details and such and I would like to have a super strong robotic arm but I would need a leg and something that connects the two or I couldn't pick up anything really heavy without crushing myself. but if I had a whole left side of my body done up then…
  • After getting a request to get off my ass and make these trainers I just ordered the parts to make 4 trainers. I was waiting to save up cash to get a decent sized batch built at work. but I am just going to go ahead and stat hand building them instead. parts will arrive Nov. 7 and Ill start building them then.
  • seems pretty cool if it actually works 
  • there are pacemaker electrodes readily available for sale if you need electrodes. you have to buy in a decent amount of bulk to get a decent price though. I'm sure we could do a group buy and get them at an ok price though. unless of course you need a different type of electrode. 
  • @raven, Yes different coils will work better or worse, results will be based on the pairing of the large cap and the coil mainly. I am currently working on generating a board design and gerbers for this now so that I can get one set up on the spectrum analyzer and get some measurements. I want to bring the phase noise down…
