Looking for implantable LED


I bought several https://dangerousthings.com/shop/nfc-nails/ and am quite happy with them. However I was looking for an implantable version. I know they make one that glows all the time, but I’d like mine to ONLY light up in the presence of NFC fields. Basically if you took the nfcnails and made it implantable. Any help would be appreciated!.


Technically it’s possible… we could explore a custom job for you to make an nfc nails inlay implantable… it would not be cheap though… probably close to $100 or so… but it can be done.


I don’t mind the money, Im just looking for something under the skin that lights up when exposed to NFC fields. I’m thinking the digit closest to the hand of my left index finger. Doable?


possibly… the width of the device will be quite large… depends on how wide your finger is.


My finger is 11/16ths of an inch at the smallest part. The NFC LED nails fit with a fair amount of space. My only concern is will the LED be visible under the skin?


Come to think of it, one that does the same for RFID would be awesome. One like for NFC, one for RFID, even if it has to be on 2 different fingers.


Unless you have extremely dark skin, like some nilotic groups of South Sudan, then it should not be a problem.

technically every NFC tag is an RFID tag, just one that also complies with an NFC standard. If you mean a 125khz version, then that’s not likely to happen in a flat form factor. The inductor would be too large.


Sorry for the long times in between replies. Is there one in a cylindrical design? (125khz).
Either way, I definitely want to purchase the first we talked about. Where the NFC lights up(implantable) How do I make payment?


Any word?


Since that would be a custom job, it will have to be explored some time in mid-August… please ping this thread or PM me then so we can try to make something.


Hello! I am still interested in this! Would you PM me with any details you may need?


This is now a thing… so it’s on my “to do” list… implantable LEDs.
