Come on down to crazy Amal's flex-o-ramma-ramma!

Up to the pro of course, but it looks like the wound is much lower… closer to the wrist… did it go through your hand at an angle or something?

Yep about a 45 degree angle
Missing 3 wrist bones, lost one of the tendon/ligaments for the pinky, ring finger stuff was able to be reattached, completely cut the ulnar nerve and artery, nerve healed mostly, artery was never reconnected oddly enough… apparently it just all pools in the hand anyway

Don’t recommend getting shot tbh

Definitely want blinkies in my hand to mess with people and say I got a robotic replacement under my original skin lulz

Put feelers out to the nearest on the DT installer map, they were initially go for flexnext apprised they off concerns, we’ll see how / if they respond

Deleted previous message to stay on topic and not derail

You know, it’s funny because you accidentally have on your hand a low-grade but functional version of something I’ve tried - unsuccessfully - to convince surgeons to do on me in the past: tunnel cineplasty.

If I were you, I would definitely get a piercing through that and exploit it for controlling an external device of some sort.

That’s horrifying
…but a bit interesting…

I want it done on my palmaris longus: it’s vestigial, it serves no purpose, and I have one in my right arm (not in my left arm though). Might as well use it for something, and it wouldn’t be a big operation - a doctor confirmed that it would almost be within the reach of a brave (reckless?) body artist. But no doctor will agree to do it, and I’m not all that keen on the brave body artist option…

Any progress on antispinning thing?

Doing a new batch soon… will try some ideas. Overall I think the width would have to be increased to accommodate the scaloppini


When can we expect to see some more post-installation photos? Can you see the outline of the implant? Does the implant block veins from being seen as easily?

Here, have a thread

@ottomagne is working on another



Still thinking about placement. If I would do it below wrist, on the other side than what photo shows, would it collide with spark2 (also visible on the photo)?

It’s possible, but it’s hard to say for sure. If you’re trying to read from the top of the forearm, it wouldn’t cause a problem, but the range on the flexNExT is large enough that you might accidently read that when trying to read the spark 2, which would cause a collision, but that’s also contingent on the reader being able to read the flexNExT from so far away (for example, my phone isn’t able to read the flexNExT through my arm).

Uuh… Thin skin… Blade… Veins… so close…

It sounds scary, also it’s not a very flat area so it might put constant pressure on those veins. :confused:

I don’t know if I said that clearly, but I meant the other side than what is shown in the photo. Here I am showing my Spark2

I figured that’s what you meant, so my point still stands. I have a flexNExT in that exact position.

Even if he would put it there, the pressure on the veins would be pretty negligible… don’t mean to derail, but just to show what is possible, without any problems…

still in healing process, yeah, but no problems with tendons or veins at all. And that thing is 4,5mm thick and not 0,4mm :wink:
So I guess there is little need to worry about anything like that considering the placement of the flexNExt :woman_shrugging:


Man, that’s got me even more eager to throw a blinky flex under mine when I get it. That’s the 1", I take it?
