  • Interesting, I've also been working on an NFC reader. Mine is using a TRF7960.
  • Awesome, can't wait till we get to try them out.
  • If there's anything I can do to chip in then I'd be happy to.
  • Try looking into EMI shielding. I doubt your finger magnets would be enough to do any real damage--if interference is your problem then it is more likely to be from the coil itself. How far from the coil is the board? One thing you could always try …
  • Came back and had another look at the paper as I still think it's a very interesting idea. Nanoscience is far from a field of expertise for me so I don't fully understand all of it but I talked to a friend who studies nanophysics who said it seemed …
  • Yeah, I think it would be pretty hard to make a DIY one that matched the small form factor and capabilities of pre-existing commercially available ones. And would probably cost you enough to make that you'd be better off just buying one anyway. Of …
  • I think for the augmented vision, the best option is probably following in the footsteps of that study earlier this year that gave mice infrared vision by injecting nanoparticles into their eyes as it looks quite promising. https://www.nature.com/ar…
  • I've heard of that one, yeah. Admittedly, I didn't look into that all too much but it didn't seem an ideal solution either. Seems far too finicky and too dependent on the coils and their orientation to be practical as getting it precise enough to ha…
  • @Drop Have already looked into that option but that unfortunately still isn't enough power unless you're using NFC but then you have the problem that the external transceiver has to be right above the skin on top of the electrode at which point you …
  • I've made some more progress on the electrodes. Have got the dry electrodes sorted which is great (am getting a batch made so should have some pictures and data for you all soon!) but am still stuck on the implantable ones. The main problem is, as p…
  • That's really interesting, please keep us updated! I'm actually somewhat tempted to implant a magnet in my tragus as well now. Did you do yours yourself? The one thing holding me back though is having to wear a large coil like that. Would be perfect…
  • No, that would be very possible to do with current technology. There's several different ways I see of doing it depending on how fully incorporated/invasive you want it to be. For a completely implanted solution, the receiver would be fairly straig…
  • Seriously, take it out. It's not worth the risk at all. Having a toxic metal in your bloodstream is not something you want, especially if you can so easily avoid it. Sure, it may look fine for now, but you could also end up with serious (and entirel…
  • Hey, no problem @cassox! There's no rush, just let me know when you do have the time :)
  • I finally have an update on the electrodes. Have settled on a design for wireless implantable ones that use ultrasound to communicate with and power them so will be putting those together and trying them out over the next couple of months. I may als…
  • That's a shame. I've always wondered though, how hard would it be to make yourself a tetrachromat? I've seen that in animal studies they've managed to convert completely colorblind (dichromatic) monkeys into trichromats--giving them full color visio…
  • (Quote) Yeah, only noticed you'd just commented after I posted. Good to see you're still around though. I know very little about nanoparticles but it does look like it's on the dodgier side of the spectrum as far as how safe DIYing it would be. Any…
  • Okay, sounds good. Looking forward to seeing it!
  • (Quote) Oh really? So it sounds a bit dodgy then? I guess it's too soon to really tell though regarding the existence of side effects. Would be interesting to see a follow-up on the mice further down the line to see if everything still looks okay an…
  • Here's the paper for anyone who wants to read it. I gave it a shot but don't understand enough of the terminology unfortunately.
  • Ah right, do they still come on here? Haven't seen them around in a while. Edit: Nevermind, apparently I'm blind lol
  • Anyone here familiar with nanoparticles got any idea as to how feasible this would be to replicate?
  • Yeah, it does actually now that you mention it. That's a very specific disclaimer to make.
  • I find it amusing how they made a disclaimer for us eccentrics who see something like this and immediately start wondering how we could replicate it. (Quote)
  • @zwytechhacker You end up getting anywhere with this?
  • Good to hear it works for you at least. I've had no luck with noopept (or any nootroopics, honestly). Has zero effect on me no matter the dose or form (have also tried sublingual).

  • Didn't work for me either. Left it on for over two hours and still had no effect other than wrinkling my skin.
    in Lidocaine Comment by Psyber March 2019
  • @Ironalex @Cassox I'm currently working on two versions to see if I can get anywhere with either. First is a reusable dry flexible electrode using conductive polymers and second is an implantable one. With the dry one, I'm just working on a better …
  • Anyone in Southern Sweden or Copenhagen area?
  • @chironex As a general rule, yes, I think lidocaine is definitely a must-have. However, at the same time, it also must be acknowledged that people do indeed have very different pain tolerances. I did my magnet implant without lido or ice or anything…
