  • I think your biggest limiter on this won't be the headset piece, but the size needed for the camera. The smallest thermal imager I've seen is still 34 x 67 x 14mm, which may be a little awkward, even if you pop it apart and change up the layout. …
  • @AlexSmith Are you planning to get any more of the V1 Fireflies made?
  • I think you should pin this to the top next to the other announcements.
  • Well, how much pain are you wanting to dull/how high is your tolerance? When you tourniquet your finger, that will numb it a bit as well, so between that and a good icing it's doable without anything else, just rather unpleasant.
  • Of course not. I don't believe there's a reliable way to just target recording devices. Maybe poor/shifting light conditions coupled with some blinding IR spotlights? But that wouldn't be conductive to any work being done.
  • It wouldn't be illegal to wand people, I'm pretty sure all currently available cameras will set off a close magnetic sweep...but I'm not sure. Alternatively, there are counter-surveillance devices that can detect cameras, RF transmissions, and vari…
  • Issues like this are why I think the grinding community needs a lobbying group. As we go forward it's unreasonable to assume we'll be able to remain out of the spotlight as technologies become more sophisticated, and I think it'd be better to at le…
  • There's a bit of information in our wiki as well, though it's more focused on the procedure itself. https://wiki.biohack.me/RFIDs_and_NFC
  • 1) In order of commonality: Chemical modification of body processes (this covers everything from experimental nootropics to steroids to carefully regulated diets), technological implants, and genetic modification. 2)Again in order of commonality: c…
  • I apologize for my earlier tone. I hadn't really considered any commercially available transfection methods for the reason I stated above. It's not that I don't know all that, I have a tendency to get tunnel vision when I'm looking at an approach …
  • * You're right, I missed that on the bacterial pathways, I couldn't find any research on their introduction into mammalian cells at all. However, the firefly luciferase genes from P. pyralis have been successfully inserted & expressed in mammal…
  • Well, I've only done two magnet implants, one failed, one successful, but assuming you're implanting a sensing disc it's absolutely necessary. There's connective tissue underneath your skin that holds it in place & pulls it back into position w…
  • The latest research I've seen was that paper I posted on hippocampal stimulation through microinjections, which I found fascinating due to it restoring some decayed neural structures. And then there's this paper on successful transplant of lab-grow…

  • (Quote) Seriously, read the sub-forum. The research is already being done, and people have fiddled with it a bit here. Labs have successfully created sensations of both pressure & pain in prosthetic limbs. It's just a bit beyond what most peo…

  • (Quote) Read the sub-forum. Some of the most recent published lab work is here.

  • For a non-sarcastic answer: it can't currently be done. There are a multitude of factors involved in aging that still aren't fully understood. There is quite a bit of research currently being done, but a solution doesn't yet exist. You sound like …

  • What part of michigan/how far are you willing to travel?
  • I'm gonna resurrect this thread again to bring up this recently published research presentation on BMI control of a third limb. Here's their video presentation: https://youtu.be/h2SDqdSTvA8 And here's the main author's link for bypassing the paywa…
  • While Jake there phrased it wrong and used a bad example, he's echoing my worry. If someone is, for example, discussing taking human growth hormone, it may be necessary to discuss how it would interact with any other hormone treatments they are tak…
  • If the magnet is visible then it is going to reject. This is why part of the standard implantation procedure is suturing the wound. At this point I would suggest removing it, letting your finger completely heal, and then trying again. Just leaving…
  • I find it unfortunate that we need a code of conduct to detail what is, essentially basic decency. I would request that that as part of the code of conduct we recognize that as part of a scientific discussion, things may be phrased in a way that ma…
  • (Quote) This absolutely makes you more than human, because you have capabilities that are beyond what is biologically possible built in. Sure, anyone else can do it with the proper piece of technology, but that doesn't change the fact that you now …
  • Are these the phosphorescent resin ones, or did you end up doing something different? You mentioned the resin was really brittle.
  • TiN is titanium nitride, not the element tin (Sn).
  • In the one study that showed any sort of effect on depression NSI-189 didn't show effects until day 28 of the study. They also show a significantly higher level of psychiatric adverse effects (table 2 in the study). Also, this was a very small dat…
  • From a medical standpoint, there aren't any extra health risks with getting an implanted magnet or w/e as an adolescent. As long as you meet all local regulations on bodymoding (which vary greatly from place to place) I see no reason why you should…
  • If you'll look at the older threads in the forum, there's been some work done on inductive charging already.
  • @Oem If you want to examine Ti alloys, β-Ti3Au seems like it'd be ideal, though I can't find any info on it's strength values, so there might be difficulties forming it to capsules.
  • It might be more cost efficient to get them coated prior to being initially magnetized, depending on what the retailers say.
  • The article's definitely written with a negative attitude and is clearly trying to paint the whole community with a single brush. It's an unfortunate trend I've seen lately on a lot of tech & science related news sites, writing to appeal to fea…
