  • 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).…
  • I don't think anyone has ever seen that, and I'm doubtful that it's a real phenomenon. You might want to check your sources or seek counsel. I'm willing to believe literally anything if there's evidence though. If you can provide quantifiable proof with a measurement device that there is in fact a dark plasma life field,…
  • The more basic NFC tags like the NTAG 216 are targeted at advertising, so they want a frictionless user experience where anyone can read the tag. They're never planning to keep secret information. The earlier MIFARE Classic chips had a form of password protection and encryption called "crypto1", but it was cracked and now…
  • > In our experiments, our paper-based biofuel cells could generate a voltage of 3.66 V and an output power of 4.3 mW Very interesting. That's more than 1mA of current at a pretty high voltage. I've heard of these before, but they were getting uA intermittently. I look forward to seeing what this can be used for in…
  • Hey @Johnnyiy For the older LF tags (125kHz) there's not a lot of options for password protecting the tag. For the HF tags (13.56MHz) most if not all support some form of password protection. As an example, the NExT from Dangerous Things contains one of the more simple HF chips (NTAG 216). It ships configured with a…
  • Just wanted to circle back on this and say I got my hands on two of auglim's double magnets. They're nice quality. I've had one implanted in my tragus for 4 months and it's holding up well. Unfortunately it doesn't work especially well as a tragus magnet like I was hoping, but I'm still happy with it. I'll probably leave…
  • I've been though metal detectors with multiple implanted magnets numerous times with no issue, even going so far as to rub my magnet bearing hand against the enclosure and separately try and wand myself. It doesn't register. The magnets are simply too small for the detector to register. Vicarious, JennyMclane, and Amal…
  • I just made it. I design RFID implants so I have some experience with this kinda stuff. I can explain how you would make one, but it's a bit complicated. Just let me know if that would interest you. Otherwise you can buy Diagnostic Cards and Field Testers that are kinda similar at Dangerous Things.
  • Look up somatic vs germline gene modifications. Basically all the cells you modify will die out without passing on their modified DNA to the next generation. Even transfection will eventually be overridden by your original cells. Like I said, I don't know a whole lot about it, but the resources are readily available. Do…
