  • 10/10 failures here. ~2% salt content though.
  • Purchase date: 3 May 2018 Test date: 7 Aug 2018 Tested with Resene Lead-Based Paint Test Kit (Sodium Sulphide, hydrated 40-45 gms/L) After an hour there was no visible color change. The test paint sample from the kit did turn dark black. Added bon…
  • Yeah, it seems like they are falsely claiming standards compliance. Mine definitely is picked up with my phone's nfc reader, so I'd assume it's useless at 134.2khz
  • 10 magnets under test. Only had sealable plastic bags handy so the magnets are sticking to each other in seperate bags for the moment, clearly not ideal. Using 2% saline. It's been four days. Think four may be failing, they have dark marks in the ce…
  • Woah, I missed a lot, forgot to bookmark this one. I appreciate you all for bringing up very valid concerns. I'll look at running a lead test soon, the most accessible locally are intended for paint testing. There's the 3m Lead Check which is propri…
  • Fantastic, I am very interested in one of these. Really appreciate all you do for the scene
  • Never heard of them They look strikingly similar to cyberise.me 's MultipassRFID/MultipassNFC/MultipassMifare except $20 less each and with more in the prep kit...
  • I bought some lidocaine but didn't get round to applying it. It was pretty doable, really not that bad. I did go very slowly until the needle was fully in though. Would recommend having someone else there to tent the skin for you with one glove on…
  • You could try a service like shipito and see if that works out a cheaper way to get them from the states?
  • Wow if I knew the parylene was optional I definitely would've gone that way! It was nice having spares, I had one to play with/test scan/show people, and I managed to screw up and desteralize another by being clumsy. The problem is it's tempting to …
  • Great post, very insightful, thanks! Placed an order for 10, going to use a reshipper to cut back on the crazy shipping fee. If anyone in NZ wants a couple I can probably hook you up in a bit.
  • I agree, pretty confusing. They also said bits instead of bytes. The packets are labelled as FDX-B compliant like in the video, but you're right that does sound wrong. I don't think this model is listed on the manufacturer's site rfidstar-security.…
  • Have been following the magnet and am very interested. Would you still consider the V3 a "beta"?
  • (Quote) To be honest it's a lot dimmer than I was expecting. Definitely not bright enough to light up a keyhole or anything. I don't have a V1. I think I would have a lot of trouble taking a picture of it. It's either going to be a green blob surrou…
  • (Quote) Mine was upside down, it's definitely working now!
  • Cheers @AlexSmith, worked a charm! I guess it did flip in healing. I didn't try until now since my piercer thought I'd notice if it had flipped (and I didn't want to impact healing).
  • No light (or not enough to tell for sure) after 25 days. Regretting not testing it in the dark pre-implant. I'm thinking perhaps my unit might be defective. Perhaps a really long exposure picture of my arm in pitch darkness might be able to check wh…
  • I see there's 3 back in stock on the store! https://cyberise.me/48-firefly-tattoo-v2.html @thetarn @Xaion27 & possibly @Helyx (not sure if they have parylene)
  • (Quote) I hadn't found the guide until now! Maybe the link could be added to more pages? How about a tiny slip of paper in the box saying "3x5x21mm, implantation guide at https://cyberise.me/guide.pdf" Thanks for taking the feedback into …
  • 12 days, just visible enough I can reliability put my finger on it in the dark. Have a pretty identifiable bruise round the implant, and a mild yellow discoloured bruise about the size of my hand. I pushed it a wee bit down my arm and back a few day…
  • 5 days after implanting, I've got a big yellowish bruise and no glow. Guess there's a lot of blood under the skin and I've got a bunch more healing to do.
  • @thetarn I'm not sure whether it was your standard issue lube, but there was definitely some placed on the tip of the needle during my implantation. No sticking issues
  • TLDR: It's in, syringe quality was questioned, no glow yet I got mine implanted in my forearm yesterday! I'd post a picture of my arm but it's pretty standard looking at the moment, 1-2cm bruise and the hole is still healing. The professional's ob…
  • @aidoneus Still not 100% sure. I was thinking forearm but @Beano 's story scared me off a bit. https://forum.biohack.me/index.php?p=/discussion/comment/24386/#Comment_24386 Probably on the back of my hand somewhere.
  • Arrived to New Zealand today! What a big box for something so small. Have made an appointment to get it implanted Tuesday after the long weekend.
  • Can't help it, I'm hyped up! Really looking forward to see the "Add to cart" button on the order page. Where is everyone planning on putting them? I liked the idea of having mine in my palm but the skin is very thick there. I'm now leani…
  • I'm really excited about the V2, and I'm looking forward to them being ready! Have the final needles arrived? Any progress on the caps and adhesive? Any idea when these will be available?
  • Were the hashed passwords salted? Will there be email comms on this? Cheers for taking some good measures to inform users of the risks.
