  • Work is keeping me around 50ish hours a week, however I will still work on being able to make it. I think I can rub the right elbows by then to make it work. Might either take the 6 hour drive there or fly into LA/SanFran and hitch a ride from there, with monetary compensation of course. *edit* No luck this time round.…
  • So speaking from an anecdotal experience. I work with computers, servers, and mobile devices all day. I have yet to experience anything that either causes discomfort on my end or causes damage to said devices. Besides what ringdown mentioned with smaller and sensitive devices, you should be fine as long as you are mindful…
  • While I have little background in the biology field, I have a Bachelors in Network Security and currently working full time as a Security Engineer. Still in the beginning stages now, however I am working towards forensics and reverse engineering. I can only imagine the more advanced the implants become the greater need…
  • For sure. During thanksgiving I was wrestling my step-brother and had a minor amount of blood pool where the pus previously was however I took the sterile approach of using a new exacto-knife and just made a small slit so the blood can drain. Afterwards it was cleaned out, it looks like it was just a small blister…
  • Gotcha. Well I suppose I'll wait a few more days and see how it looks. I haven't seen any black flesh yet so I remain positive that the coating isn't the issue. Thanks all for the input you have provided so far!
  • Hmm as of the moment it hasn't been a problem since I have lanced it. Any reason that a finger would start making pus and then stop afterwards? Assuming there is no physical trauma to it. 90% certain I haven't hit my hand on anything however I can only be so mindful while I am awake. If the coating was bad wouldn't it…
  • Duly noted. Yeah I am thinking of either removing it tonight while I have the time, or waiting until tomorrow after my work. I'll probably wait just for the sake of @cassox to share his thoughts. Sorry thought I mentioned it in the video, yes I sterilized the needle with alcohol and sterile pads. also washed hands before,…
  • https://youtu.be/JXWrejR75g0 Video showing how I lanced my finger. Any advice or input is more than welcome as it was my first time productively prodding a puss filled piece of flesh.
  • Sweet. Sounds good. Just woke up and noticed it has a hint of black along where the scar was during the implant. So the lighting doesn't help a great deal thanks to the glare however it looks more like a dark purple/blackish color. http://imgur.com/a/SxzHq Off to the store to get a lance and then I'll upload more images…
  • For the lance. I believe recalling someone mentioning a diabetic needle working just fine? Before I go out and buy it I wanted to double check as I couldn't find the source of where I read something along those lines in the past. I would imagine it isn't thick enough of a needle however I could be wrong.
  • Basically what I was thinking as well. Perhaps some Ibuprofen for the sake of the swelling I imagine? Still at work for another hour so I'll wait till I get back to my place before doing anything further. Just rather odd that I woke up to it pulsing and feeling rather sensitive considering that I am not aware of any trauma…
  • Oh snap!! Totally forgot that this magnet is the one that @Cassox implanted. Not the Haworth one that was previously in there before the new implant. We implanted two m31s and the ring finger was the one that removed the Haworth to put in the m31 for science purposes. The larger scar tissue pocket made me forget that it…
  • Still at work however here is what I could take pictures of. Tell me if there is anything else you would like to know about or another angle perhaps. http://imgur.com/a/9A3HtSorry for potato quality. At work and don't have best lighting.
  • Working at the moment so don't have much time to chat. Link is back when I spent a month documenting my implant and progress: http://forum.biohack.me/discussion/838/the-cronical-of-the-proxys-implants#Item_48 Magnet Type: 2, both m31Implant Date: In linkOutcome, duration: Success, check link for durationImplanter:…
  • For the price of pain and a few more stitches? That honestly seems like a smoking deal in my eyes. Past those easy points what other cons would it have?
  • While I am all for the end result being an avatar and looking realistic, do you feel that at the moment perhaps placing focus on the mechanics could be a higher priority and then once it is fleshed out (no pun intended) then taking the time to be concerned about the appearance?
  • Speaking from personal experience I would say the Titanium is better specifically in the sense that the coating takes up a lot less space in the finger and it doesn't feel so intrusive. I had first gotten a Haworth magnet in my ring finger and then later traded it out for the TiN magnets in my middle and ring finger on the…
  • From experience on years having gone to both Blackhat and Defcon I can say that being super close to Defcon is more of a personal preference than anything else. Besides this year where I was in Paris hotel, I have been around 10 minutes away as well and I didn't find it that bothersome seeing as I have my own vehicle to…
  • I personally would recommend taking the time to make your way down to Cassox. He implanted some m31s in my right hand and I had no issues with the aftercare. Cass was able to install both of them within 30 minutes and that includes removing a haworth magnet that I had in my ring finger (sub-par quality compared to the m31s…
  • As stated a few times in the posts, I am no longer doing updates as it has healed back to normal and images of regular looking fingers probably only excite a small percentage of people on the internet if you know what I mean. ;) For the sake of updating anyone that is still curious on my status though. I took a few…
  • Day30Side 4/3/15 Morning image taken outside. No difference yet besides the peeling skin is behaving and appears to be healing back to normal now.

  • Day29Side 4/2/15 Morning image taken outside. That high quality image of some jean leg though.. Same as previous. No noticeable change as of yet. Day29Top 4/2/15
  • Day28Side 4/1/15 Morning image taken outside. Nothing much to post here anymore. Just needs to heal now however I have a few more days of posting to do to finish up the month. Day28Top 4/1/15
  • Makes sense to see if time will help it out enough. It would be a few months anyways to make my way over to CA anyways so that could work out. Probably would still opt for Cassox's opinion as he is pretty comfortable to recommend it when the time is appropriate.
  • Day27Side 3/31/15 Morning image taken inside. Working on resizing the images if possible. No update as of the moment with my fingers. Just healing and letting them work as normal for now. Day27Top 3/31/15Morning image taken inside. Will be working towards a time for me to meet Cassox to take a cortisone shot to see if it…
  • Avanthus, I can do that no problem for the weekly... On the note of the photo size I know what you mean. My main workstation has them sized normal however my laptop shows them blown up.. Any advice from anyone on the proper method to get that fixed on the thread would greatly appreciated. @Cassox As of this moment I don't…
  • Day26Side 3/30/15 Morning image taken outside. Thinking about ending the documentation at day 31 however I am not opposed to continuing for the sake of science. Skin is still growing back however that is nothing special and a post healed image can be taken to show what they will normally look like. Day26Top 3/30/15Morning…
  • Day25Side 3/29/15 Morning image taken outside. Both fingers will be used as normal while at work (restaurant) and won't be getting special treatment in regards to the day to day tasks. Planning on waiting another week at least before introducing magnets and heavy electronic devices back into hand's reach. Day25/Top…
  • Day24Side 3/28/15 Morning image taken outside. Scab peeled off last night while I was at work on the middle finger. Hardly any force was put on it and came off while I was washing my hands. Flesh looks normal and pink as it should be. Day 24Top 3/28/15Morning image taken outside. Middle finger's pocket is still soft and…
  • Day23Side 2/27/15 Morning image taken outside. Fingers are left alone and seem to have stopped peeling. Ring finger's pocket seems a little thicker than the middle finger. Day23Top 3/27/15Morning image taken outside. Middle finger is hardly noticeable if you are not aware of a magnet being there and the ringer finger looks…
