  • It will definitely be easier to remove now than later if it does fail. Forward me your order information (reply to the order email) and I will put you on the list for a free replacement. All of our implantable products carry lifetime warranties.
  • @alexsmith in June you mentioned "I'll send you one of the tags to test/check meets your safety standards" ... thanks for sending one. I received it in November but didn't have time to check it until now. Unfortunately it was DOA... the ta…
  • Modding things in your world to use the implant does require a certain level of skill and outright tenacity. Modding my bike was easy compared to my 2004 VW that has all kinds of anti-theft measures built in.. but if you are lucky enough to have a r…
  • Hi guys, The xM1 is based on the Mifare S50 1K chip from NXP which is not NFC compliant, though it is ISO14443A. If you have a phone that uses an NFC controller from NXP, it comes with a built-in hardware license to be able to read and interact with…
  • That's possible... probably not from the magnet, but likely from the wrenching and pushing during the installation... wow what a video! It could have decoupled the chip from the antenna, which just got worse the more he messed with it. This can usua…
  • @aviin my thought is that it is just a coincidence that you happened to be playing around with a magnet, and that the coating likely failed. I think this because; 1) the NTAG216 chip from NXP has a very strong overcurrent protection mechanism built …
  • It's in the works as part of the UKI project; www.myuki.com

  • Ok, well that makes me feel a bit better. Just proof positive that QA must extend to both ends of the supply chain. I considered contacting you directly but ultimately felt the content of the discussion would be valuable for public display anyway.
  • @alex - if you wouldn't mind, I'd like to take a look.  Sorry I really don't mean to be a dick I'm just wanting to ensure everyone in the commercial biohacking market is keeping the utmost level of quality possible for the things they ship out to an…
  • Interesting. Were you part of the free pre-beta program or did you order a beta tag from the site? Was there a marking on the pouch, a number? Can you post photos? I just destructively analysed this tag and it's a simple silicone coating overtop a P…
  • @markbloke I get it... the problem is that NFC Tools should be able to change the password, but they programmed it all shitty, so it can't. I think it may have something to do with the PAK, which we set to ASCII "DT" instead of factory 00h…
  • Hi everyone... been a while since I've checked out the boards. Great minds think alike I suppose; https://dangerousthings.com/shop/flexnt/
  • Hi guys, Actually you can't "remove" the password. The password bytes are also not "write once" or "OTP"... the password memory page must have a value, it has not concept of NULL, so there is no way to remove the passwo…
  • Hi @garethnelsonuk Assault is not accurate. It is only assault without consent. It's similar to rape... consent must be given and sustained throughout the procedure. The easiest way to prove this is to simply record the entire thing from start to …
  • Hi @TheGreyKnight and @atimeoflight - I stopped providing the HCL powder as an option simply because I could not source or guarantee proper pyrogenic-free saline. You can get sterile saline easy enough but that doesn't mean it will not contain pyrog…
  • also, sorry for the rant, but it's been years in the making... or at least it feels that way.
  • <rant>fuck, ok first, i hate the way this fucking site works, or rather doesn't work. i never get emails for shit i subscribe to, and every time i come to a thread like this and want to comment, the login process dumps me out of the thread to …
  • Yeah I'm thinking about trying the underarm up near the armpit, basically where you might hold a thermometer if you were taking an armpit measurement. With the arm down it should retain a stable and reliable delta that is close to core temp.
  • @AlexSmith no problem at all, I totally agree. It was just a thought about what might be possible using biotherms. A new tag design that is much more secure is on the drawing board actually... but I also have some ideas on basic commercial access co…
  • @alexsmith ahh good point. Yeah, I'm not so concerned about the biofouling aspect since I will likely remove the tag after a year or so of testing in the armpit area. Alternatively, if I choose to keep it longer and it rejects, I won't be so bummed.…
  • @alexsmith yeah thanks for clarifying. I think it's cool too and I'm probably going to get one implanted in my arm pit, but only after manually ejecting the tag and removing the biobond cap, re-cleaning it, then injecting. I don't plan on autoclavin…
  • @aviin - no comment at this time :) I can say I am meeting with a major banking institution in the EU next month. Also, I would like to comment that our xEM tag is also capable of being used as a clone. It can be programed with another tag's ID, inc…
  • Hi guys, This reader is looking interesting for sure... but I'm curious about those of you who mention constant temp monitoring. Why would you opt for such an invasive method of temperature monitoring when it would be very easy, cheaper, and more re…
  • While not a biohack, we are working on www.switcherooboard.com which we are kind of considering an alternative to the implant.
  • @Jack_Sylvane we are now also selling biotherm chips at www.dangerousthings.com/shop/xbt
  • Hi guys, that list is by no means the definitive list of chips and their sizes. For example, NXP makes a DESFire EV2 tag that is NFC type 4 compliant and can store upwards of 32kb... some are even larger. There are non-NFC compliant tags which can b…
  • Just to add a bit of clarity on the difference between RFID and NFC... RFID is a blanket term used to describe any manner in which something can be identified using radio frequency energy. This includes methods such as; - bouncing radar off planes w…
  • @aviin, haha yeah, we had no idea either but our first round test batch production of xEM tags used a true EM4200 chip, then we changed manufacturers very early on and they simply looked at our specifications and chose to use the ATA5577 chips they …
  • @zombiegristle the xEM tag actually uses the ATA5577 chip inside, but it's been programmed to emulate an EM4102. You can clone other tags and badges to the xEM. We have not produced a manual on how to do this yet, but this is forthcoming.
