This looks dangerous as hell but also could…possibly….save time? Oh, who am I kidding. It’s pants weather now, so I stopped shaving a looooong time ago.
Ugh! For some reason Biohacker Tim Cannon decided that he wanted to insert a chip into his arm so that he can collect data about his body. He hopes one day to “transcend the boundaries of biology, and try to hack evolution itself.” And Motherboard tried to make sense of it by continuously calling him a “Cyborg“. Whatever. Cannon mentions about making our environment more intuitive about our bodies: “So if, for example, I’ve had a stressful day, the Circadia will communicate that to my house and will prepare a nice relaxing atmosphere for when I get home: dim the lights, let in a hot bath.” Yo, Bro… I don’t need my house all up in my business.
Here’s what the chip can do:
Called the Circadia 1.0, the implant can record data from Cannon’s body and transfer it to any Android-powered mobile device. Unlike wearable computers and biometric-recording devices like Fitbit, the subcutaneous device is open-source, and allows the user full control over how data is collected and used.
It looks terrible, uncomfortable, and gross. What do you think?
In case you’re wondering how YouTuber, Nicholas Youngers, came to the conclusion that he could stick a guitar cable in his bellybutton, here’s his reason:
I found this out when it touched my fingers as I plugged it into my guitar. Natural I had to figure out how to make the signal clearer, one thing lead to another and my belly button ended up as a good place to get a signal.
Have you ever loved plants so much that you created a wearable pregnancy vest to carry them around like they’re in the womb with you? No? Well, product design graduate Alice Kim decided to show that plants deserve much of the attention that growing babies do by wearing said pregnancy vest. I just want to know what people on the train were thinking.
