Magnetic Implant in Hand

at 10:02 am. Filed under Human Hacks

Well I guess I am old fashioned but I don’t want magnets or anything else implanted in my hands right now.

“Body-mod artists Jesse Jarrell and Steve Haworth’s original idea was to implant a magnet to carry metal gadgets. It turns out that doesn’t work: If you try to carry something magnetic on your implant regularly, the pinched skin between the magnets dies and your body rejects the implant. But they came up with a new application when a mutual friend suffered an accident that left a shard of iron in his finger. He worked with audio equipment, and found that he could tell which speakers were magnetized from the sensation that passed through his finger at close range.”

    This is awesome
    I really would like to see more of this happening out there.

    […] Como curiosidad: este instrumento nació en una época en la que la U.R.S.S. investigaba los campos electromagnéticos y su interacción con el cuerpo humano (hablamos de 1919). Hoy en día se sigue investigando y se está avanzando, creando nuevos médios de transmisión de información como RedTacton, o nuevos sentidos, como en este enlace de Hacked Gadgets […]

    I want one of these implants where can I purchase the magnets (I’m thinking of of one in each hand) and can any body piercing shop do the deed?

    Not sure what the best magnet would be. Something that has a smooth surface that can be sterilized would be the best I would think.

    Actually there has been a good amount of this done over the past few years. The best magnets to use are rare earth magnets because they are small, but still guite powerful. The problem with this procedure, however is that many of these sterong magnets will be toxic to you if dissolved into the blood stream. For this reason, the magnets need to be coated with something to protect the body. Silicon has been used, but it is generally too weak and it will rupture, necesitating a quick surgery to remove the implants. Glass would work well, but the great heat required for shaping glass would destroy the unstable magnets. These implants would allow the ability to sense electromagnetic fields, but for now they tend to be more dangerous than practical. In the next few years, however they should become much more prominent and accepted in the next few years.

    Yup, I did this. Kinda. If you super glue a small rare earth mag to your finger it does pretty much the same thing.

    For the forth time, could you please hold your hand still, this is __just__ a MRI-scan, it really won’t hurt a bit”

    Foot implants and the right equipment under the floor could make anyone a dancing guru though 😉

    Friend of mine in high school had a stainless steel BB in his jaw. Stuck magnetic things to it all the time. Still does, and it’s been 13 years.
