"Merging Man And Machine": BioHacker Implants Huge Computer Chip in Arm, Transmits Wirelessly

Biohacker and transhumanist Tim Cannon is the first human to implant a chip that transmits bioemtric data to an Android device. (Gross images follow)

In a call for immortality, Cannon says :

“The human body is really failing in almost every way,” Cannon says. “I want to live to be thousands of years old. I don’t want to die. I don’t know why anybody would.” Source

The troubling aspect of implants, as always, is the idea of hackability [See: Barnaby Jack Was Right: Cheney Admits His Pacemaker was Disabled to Prevent Assassination ] , as well as who the information is going to and why, and how it will be used.

This DIY body modification is definitely not the most subtle approach on the path to the transhumanist dream. If all implants were so easily visible (and gruesome), there would be a bigger push-back from the public, that’s for sure.

During an interview with Motherboard Magazine, the “Circadia 1.0,” an open-source device capable of recording and transmitting body temperature over Bluetooth, was successfully implanted into Cannon’s left forearm.

Built by Cannon and his business associates at Grindhouse Wetware, a company focused on “merging man and machine,” the large chip was implanted by body modifier Steve Haworth without the use of anesthesia. The battery-powered device, enclosed in a protective case, is charged wirelessly through the use of a charging coil placed against the skin.

“Instead of taking snapshots of your health by visiting a doctor, you can aggregate weeks or months of medical data that you can store for your personal viewing. Messages, warnings, or texts from your android phone to Circadia implant can be displayed via LEDs through your skin,” the device description reads.

Cannon says the device will allow him to study what causes his temperature to fall or rise, with a later upgrade configuration allowing text messages to be sent if his temperature begins reaching 100 degrees °F.
