Man Implants Bluetooth-Connected Computer Chip In His Arm


Via Motherboard, a preview of where you will be in ten years:

Tim Cannon got what is likely the first-ever computer chip implant that can record and transmit his biometrical data. With a battery that can be wirelessly charged, Cannon had it implanted directly under his skin by a fellow biohacking enthusiast, not a doctor, and without anesthesia.

Called the Circadia 1.0, the implant can record data from Cannon’s body and transfer it to any Android-powered mobile device. In a few months, the first production series of the Circadia chip should be ready. With an expected price of around $500, the chip should be relatively accessible for just about any enthusiast, and will mainly be distributed through the networks of the body modification community.

    Patience fool!

    Tech rule one; NEVER buy state of the art.

    Even more true for wetwiring and its variants.

    Plus, it looks fucking dumb.

  6. It looks gross.

  7. Before watching the video, I made a little bet with myself about what this asshole would look like. While I overshot the number of face piercings he would turn out to have, I nailed it on the Maynard G. Krebs beard and douchecap.
