Cyborg Fair: Biohackers implant LED’s under their skin!

This “biohack” took place earlier this month at the Cyborg Fair in Dusseldorf, Germany. via techworm

Grindhouse Wetware, a Pittsburgh-based biohacking collective has uncovered something that could be termed as “Technology for future.” They have found an unusual way to enhance their body with implantable technology, which is a silicone implant that is equipped with LED and magnets.

The biohackers illustrated 3 implants operations last Saturday done in Dusseldorf simultaneously.

According to Motherboard, “Northstar V1” chip, an LED disc, in terms of size is somewhat similar to the size of a coin making it considerably smaller than its predecessor, the Circadia 1.0 computer chip. The LEDs light up when activated by a magnet.

…The implant seems crazy, as putting a foreign body in your skin is not only dangerous but it could also lead to possible infections given that the chip’s circuitry, even though it is encased in plastic contains hard metals. There are also high chances of having severe allergic reaction triggered by the said hard metal. So, it would be advisable to think before you put yourself under the knife.
