  • Just got done with the magnet implantation. We decided it would interesting to experiment with the placement of the magnets, so my right one is deeper into my tragus, parallel and relatively close to my ear canal, while my left one is more superfici…
  • Okay so what I'm seeing is that the amp chip is behind the ear, as well as the solenoid. I think you're underselling the size of amp chips at the moment, but that is a small hurdle. The solenoid would have to be really small, so I imagine you might …
  • I'm in the same mindset as you are, trying to find another way to position the solenoid. One big solenoid is just not the most efficient way to create magnetic fields for this purpose. You would have to use much MORE wire to produce the same strengt…
  • @Satur9 said: Hey @trroyyc I saw your post on DT. Here's the amplifier board that Vicarious used (Velleman PMK190) https://www.amazon.com/Velleman-MK190-2X5W-Amplifier-Player/dp/B007K2N0ZI You'll also need some magnet wire …
  • @Satur9 said: While you wait for the second batch of xG3, get some magnet wire and a cheap amplifier breakout board online and try it out. You can just put a small magnet in your ear canal. Let us know how it turns out. Ordered all the pa…
  • @Satur9 said: Hey @trroyyc A user named Vicarious on the DT forums has been experimenting with that lately (not sure what his handle is on here, but he has more than a dozen implants so he's certainly here somewhere.) He used the recentl…
  • @Zwytechhacker I didn't say it was new, but this is the most advanced form of that technology, and the first one to be marketed towards everyday people (eventually). I fail to see how this is relevant to any photonic connectome, or really any connec…
  • I've only been able to eyeball it; you want it to be deep enough where it isn't going to reject but not deep enough where it isn't in contact with the neuron-dense subcutaneous tissue. The pocket depth should be around the lower layers of the subcut…
  • I don't see where the benefit would be of a USB attached to you vs a USB you just carry with you, unless the reason was privacy. Movement of important files, perhaps something that could get you in trouble, or something that could get you rich. In e…
  • Hypothetically you would be able to reduce further pigmentation of dermal tissue by slowing (or stopping) the development of melanocytes. But melanocytes do a lot more than just pigment the skin, there's a disorder known as Waardenburg syndrome that…
  • @Cassox does reducing inflammation prevent rejection, or will it just ease pain?
  • That's the biggest reason I'm having a friend who knows this sort of stuff do mine, otherwise I would do it. It is pretty hard to tell. Take what I say with a grain of salt, but mid/deep dermis is about 2mm deep. But this depends on a lot of factors…
  • Can you tell if the bump is from the magnet or from inflammation? Just wondering. It's a good idea to remove it anyways. If it is from the magnet, it is most likely too shallow and will end up being rejected and then ejected from the body. If it is …
  • CRISPR gene editing, while revolutionary and interesting, unfortunately only works at on a single cell at a time. CRISPR alone unfortunately isn't feasible for genetic biohacking, unless you were a single celled zygote. Anyways, I'll share this a…
  • Hate on me all you want but my point is still correct, that having a neodymium magnet degrade inside of you isn't a good idea but that it is by no means the riskiest thing in the world. I get that I should have worded it better so that it was more i…
  • I didn't say it was safe. I said it won't kill you. Big difference. Anyone with eyes would read everything that I said and come to the conclusion that having a neodymium magnet degrade inside of you isn't the best idea but it won't kill you.
  • @McSTUFF I get you. I didn't mean to come off as "let it degrade inside of you," that was not my intention and I apologize for that. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure that was not fun for you in the least, and was still an invasive surgery. I just don't …
  • @McSTUFF Oh don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it is good for you, but being a rare earth metal it isn't really bioactive. It does however have some interactions, and you shouldn't go around trying to absorb neodymium, but as long as you're safe abo…
  • It's not the end of the world if they break down anyways. No, neodymium probably isn't good for you but it won't hurt you. The most that is gonna happen if it is in fact corroding is that you'll lose sensitivity. Big whoop.
  • Honestly, I feel like you would have more sensitivity the smaller the magnet. The bigger the magnet gets, the more resistance it would have against vibration, which is what allows your body to feel the electromagnetic fields. So it makes sense that …
  • I thought one of the biggest reasons that you could feel magnet implants as much as you can is because of the nerves growing around the magnet, which wouldn't happen with an externally-worn magnet. Yeah, there would be slight stimulation, but it wou…
