But until a better magnet:encapsulation method has been found, and you REALLY want one, you MAY have to look at a do it yourself option.
I am not condoning this , but to make you aware of “what is out there” @Vicarious made his own, with a neodymium magnet and Sugru to encapsulate and he has had it for quite a while. I can’t attest to the strength of it, nor the strength compared to any others on the market.
A lot of testing and research would be required before you go throwing a magnet in a ball of Sugru in sticking it in yourself.
However, if you find yourself leaning more toward the Grinder side of things, you can stick into yourself whatever you want, where-ever you want Whenever you want
( Not “having a go” at grinders, just a tongue in cheek comment …there I go again )
I feel like if there’s another last one I might want it. I keep hearing about it and it sounds like there are benefits to the og one.
ALL the nopes for me. If people are doing it here, chances are it’ll be “safe” but I’ll let Amal tell me if that’s safe enough when he starts selling it, lol. A ball o’ geek putty doesn’t seem super biosafe to me.
My argument against the xG3 is the glass. I don’t play ball often these days, but I’m not exactly coordinated and wouldn’t want to bounce a line drive off my fingertips (or even a fast throw since I tend to play 1B), glove or no.
I got my first chip from them ( https://chip-implants.com/ ) Here in Austria it was a bit difficult to find a partner piercer. Austria and piercing rules
The owner write that he is the first with payment implants. WRONG - Patrick got his converted card 6 month earlier
I was too slowly for the m31 I talked to a bodymod - he had the magnets from Samppa ( I got the magnet in 2018.
I got the SIID in amber about year ago - I’m glad that dsruptive joined forces with Dangerous Things.
I heard in September that the xSIID will be released in other colors ( I was in Sweden at Epicenter)
hmm… yeah… i would say if we consider a transit card “payment” then any closed payment system could be in the same category, and people were using the old VeriChip implants for paying for drinks at bars in like 2004… and plenty of school kids were using chips like the xNT to register with school lunch systems and vending machines… overall it’s a tough thing to define. As far as I’m concerned, there hasn’t yet been a payment implant… something sanctioned and legit and works with global payment networks.
