  • Sent it off to Amal for encapsulation in his biopolymer. It will be nice to have my real debit card with a longer expiration date and no fees after all these Purewrist shenanigans. I wish there weren't so many players standing in the way of implantable payment... https://youtu.be/Xr4uPm84-8k
  • Unfortunately I don't have one to trade, but I'm curious how long/often you plan to wear it for?
  • Interesting. I don't know if I would consider that an implant, more a transdermal or a piercing. I mean, I personally wouldn't do that, especially because it would be hard to sleep on it. They should be able to do whatever they want with their body though. I just hope they did it out of personal desire, and not just…
  • Specifically it's much easier to convert a card if it's a payment wearable because they often use MOB chip packages (pictured above) that have convenient "wing" contacts that are not bound to a contact interface. Dual interface cards have a tiny silicon die encased in resin which is not easy to connect an antenna to (see…
  • I just hope we don't start relying on biometrics for our day to day stuff because it's not secure. Sure it's somewhat difficult to emulate a fingerprint or a palm scan *now*, but as soon as out becomes more ubiquitous and there's money to be made for thieves they'll find an exploit, and what are you gonna do then?…
  • Amazon One will use infrared scanning of the veins in your palm, which you can't modify. I personally hate the idea of relying on biometrics. It's kind of like using a magstripe on your credit card, but if it's compromised it can never be changed. I much prefer implanted secure elements with changing keys.
  • I'm not sure exactly how much pinching force your skin can withstand for more than 8 hours without necrosis. I would imagine it's very little, something less than 1kpa (0.1N/cm²). If you want to calculate the pull force of a magnet to ferromagnetic steel you could use a calculator like this:…
  • I assume for holding up your glasses you're going to want to wear them for more than 10 minutes at a time, which will present an issue. Picking objects up normally occurs over just a few seconds. You may be able to get wider flat magnets installed and make very wide metal mounting plates on the glasses to distribute the…
  • Mounting things to your body with implanted magnets is not really viable because it pinches the skin in between and causes tissue necrosis.
  • You could do some exploration into energy harvesting. Make an autonomous solar powered boat, or a clock that runs indefinitely off of motion capture or temperature gradient or betavoltaics.
  • Did you want it to be body augmentation related, or just general? If you just want a project idea you could make a smart mirror
  • What kind of things do you like to do? Are you more of a tinkerer, programmer, artist, manager?
  • I live in the US (unfortunately) so I won't be using them as payment implants. I got them more as a novelty so I could do some testing of the chip behavior, antenna characteristics, and encapsulation durability. I also have a flexDF from DT that I had installed for two years removed recently, and the encapsulation is still…
  • Augmentation Limitless is going to charge you ~$80 for one of their magnets because of all the labor that went in. The xG3 v1 is $70 and the v2 is $130 right now. I understand the Titan is expensive, but it is a permanent addition to your body. You don't have to get a Titan, but if you're not willing to spend $80 on a…
  • Cassox is very a hard dude to pin down. He's an ER nurse and a mad scientist so he doesn't have a lot of bandwidth to chat. You can try [email protected], but it will still be slow. I've heard he's active on the Slack for this site, but you need an invite for that.
  • Gold alone is not enough because it's mechanically very weak so it experiences cracking and flaking. I don't think putting gold on top of or underneath the TiN is viable or wise.
  • True card cloning is only viable with the PAN data on the magstripe. In the US at least they're mostly on contact interface and just starting to get contactless, but they still have magstripe. The only security is the second factor of authentication (the PIN code). You can technically perform "replay attacks" on cards with…
  • Currently you could consider purchasing a PMMA+Palaseal coated magnet from Cassox at Augmentation Limitless, or you could purchase a glass coated xG3 or a Titanium encased Titan from Dangerous Things. They all could last indefinitely. I've had all of these magnets installed and they're good. I've also had a TiN and a…
  • When you talk about cloning a credit card, you're confusing the old magstripe technology with the new secure element type cards (contact/contactless). Look up symmetric key and then asymmetric key encryption for some context. Inside the secure element there are symmetric keys loaded on at special factories that allow…
  • Just to circle back on this, I did finally recieve the IAR P1s. @Rem is still missing in action though. Good luck, comrade.
  • Because you can't lose it or forget it.
  • I have one of the new titanium coated magnets from DT in my fingertip and it's worked out very well for me. I've tried: TiN, Parylene, Glass, PMMA coated magnets, but the titanium one is the best so far. There's a third batch that just opened up for orders a couple days ago.
  • Rem seems to be MIA. I purchased the P1s and they arranged for shipping but I haven't received them. It's been more than long enough for shipping. I hope they're okay, and I also that I haven't been scammed XDX
  • Evidence.
  • I had a big parylene magnet in for a year and a half and the coating had started to fail. I've attached some pictures. You can see surface pitting, bubbles, and cracks. The tough part with elastomers like parylene and silicone is that they're really just a shell, they're not adhered to the magnet in any way. A blunt force…
  • I'm not DIYBio focused, but I'm also interested in this. There doesn't seem to be much of a business case for pharmaceutical companies to "cure" HSV-1 once and for all. Ascendance Biomedical was purportedly working on a treatment before the accident. glims may also have some insights to share. My understanding is that part…
  • What was the coating on your magnet, do you remember?
  • Yeah, you're right I don't know for a fact that being gentle with the wound will aid reinnervation. I was just following general injury advice. It might also depend on the type of corpuscles in the area. Fingertips are an especially nerve dense area so they may also behave differently. Upon initial inspection this paper…
  • @Cassox have you gotten a chance to take a look at a titan? Samuel has been looking to come up for a visit and he has a few you could examine. Might even be willing to part with one if you're so inclined
  • If you're intending to use it for sensing, you should be very gentle with the finger for the first few weeks of healing so the nerves can grow back. Also don't be afraid to air it out for awhile after the first day or two. White loose flesh around the wound is a sign of maceration (water getting trapped under the bandage).…
