  • @Lonecodesmen said: I've come up with a "smart contract" (blockchain meme) that works in a very curious way that I believe could help fund and govern independent research and development. I want to brainstorm applications. Perhaps demo exactly…
  • @Satur9 said: Hey all, Opening this up for general discussion. People who are keeping an eye on the progress of genetic research have probably heard of a company called Genomic Prediction: https://genomicprediction.com/ …
  • @Lonecodesmen said: I've recently joined a maker space and they've got a crispr lab. We're pretty fresh to the whole domain. The guy who pushed the addition of the crispr effort is mainly interested in plants and doesn't know how to approach c…
  • I have actually been doing similar research on my own and will update here later, I just wanted to mention I appreciate the caution you are using in regards to this. I am majoring in premed biochem, so this is precisely the kind of project I am inte…
  • @Ken said: Hey new to modding with technical enhancements. I do tend to use herbal enhancements. Please note NOT A DOCTOR just a guy. lion's mane mushroom - Good for the brain, Helps you remember and depending on how its prepared ca…
  • Alright, i'm two weeks late but i'll take a stab: The field of nootropics is where neuroscience and chemistry converge, and individual biological factors vary massively and are incredibly important. There are many things that will aid you in incr…
  • What is it you're intending on doing with Geobacter sulfurreducens? They are extremophiles (I.E. it will be difficult for you to maintain the proper environment) who as you can tell from the name, reduce sulfur and other compounds into what they nee…
  • @tekniklr said: I think the rules are extremely location dependent. In many places, injecting lidocaine into someone else is "practicing medicine", which you aren't allowed to do without a license. @Moonman0922 said: Ok so question, Is …
  • I will always suggest subdermal lidocaine injection, but I understand that is a daunting thought for those that aren't chemists/medical. Than again, you're literally doing surgery and you damn well make sure you ace everything that entails. If yo…
  • As for the original kind of off topic discussion, I will be doing more research into graphene and i'll play around with making some. But like I mentioned far up in the thread we are likely far away from successfully doing graphene, diamond, or a com…
  • @ThomasEgi said: getting back to solid metal for a quick question. if the moisture creeps in through inperfect grain boundaries in thin coatings, how would changing metal thickness and grain size impact the barrier performance. like would bigger …
  • Although... Bonding diamond to graphene may be easier than a fully enclosed grown graphene disk as we are not required to be as precise on the edges growing properly. It's lighting a candle with a blowtorch, but if we've got the butane... I'm spit b…
  • "For it to be true gaphene then* it's a single..." @Zerbula said: Heh, maybe hybrid of Diamond and CNT? Too easy? :p IIRC, Graphene is extremely 'tough' for its thickness, very resistant to punctures or tearing. it is still flexible …
  • @ThomasEgi said: as a reminder. we need a moisture barrier here. means something that prevents h2o molecules do diffuse through. a monocristaline metal or diamond would be ideal. i don't know how graphene would hold up. it might be thin but i'd s…
  • Graphene is far simpler than a diamond coating, and due to the lattice structure will run into the same problems as diamond but far less severely due to it's tiny size and lower tensile strength, manufacturing requires less expensive equipment. It's…
  • @Zerbula said: I don't know if there is a good 'current supplier' for magnets. The determinations of TiN's weaknesses as a coating is a good thing to understand, for sure, but it's a bit of an annoyance on the scale of being practically useful, o…
  • @Semilovr12 said: Sorry for my comment then. I just didn't know a reason for the long disappearance. These guys are innovators. I'm looking forward to amal's payment chip. Me too, a successful payment chip will be revolutio…
  • @UnkownVoice said: I would like to have my vital signs displayed. I would prefer implants but wearables are okay too. Vital Signs like : Heartrate, BodyTemp or Pulse This isn't the first thread you've started asking this literal sam…
  • Oops, than I retract my last statement except that i'm working on my own regardless. Do you know if he is still working on this project? His profile says he's been inactive since may 2018
  • Unfortunately it appears as if the inventor, Alex Smith, has been inactive for the past year. I'm not sure we can expect any further developments on this from him, but that doesn't mean this is a dead project. I've been reading through the pages, do…
  • @Satur9 said: So I got a TiN coated finger magnet implanted at the same time as a friend (~6m ago). They didn't reject and are working well. As my friend learned about the potential for failure, she has become very concerned about health complica…
  • Update?
  • To further on my above comment, as Cassox mentioned, the primary concern with infection comes from the object being enclosed in flesh and the tools used not generally ambient bacteria after the procedure. Ambient bacteria is obviously certainly a th…
  • @Cassox said: Ok, so I was 50/50 about my tone on the previous responses. I'm going to even cut this response and turn it into a thread altogether because I think it has more global importance. Even spoke to a mod regarding appropriateness as I'm…
  • @UnkownVoice said: I have to look for a bit maybe i find the right Thing for me :p and if i find something, i will share it in this Thread. Do u know Duo Skin Tattoo? I saw a tattoo that displayed the heart function, maybe something li…
  • @borg said: can get oragel benzocaine powder and a mild lidocaine solution but none of them last long enough or penetrate past surface layer unless i can find a way to extract lidocaine for an inject-able solution @borg said: can get or…
  • This is where we are still kind of an 'underground' community, we deal in the relative grey areas of many subjects which causes many people to resort to blacklisting in order to prevent bad press. Another unfortunate implication of us dealing in rel…
  • @nothot said: I actually have some PMMA and TiN magnets. I’m wondering I could make my own mold and coat them myself and save the $100 for a secondary implant.(Since I know my first is probably going to fail within the next year) What's t…
  • @Nadvyr said: @Cassox said: The most important thing is the cross linker.. most aren't something you want in the body So the best one would be a PMMA coat or am I missing something? PMMA or poly(methyl methacry…
  • *I came across this earlier while trying to make a persuasive essay: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25757618 Now I apologize for two unnecessary posts
