Hey DT people. I’ve been hanging around and doing some research for a while now after owning a Flipper Zero and learning about magnetic implants just so happened to converge here. I’ve looked at the various community projects (the android app and the Pico look awesome!) and I’ve thought a lot about someday getting some hardware of my own. Well, now I finally have one. Check it out:
(Old-fashioned refrigerator for demonstrative purposes only.)
My first implant was gonna be a NExT, but given the current Titan shortage and my dream of having the best possible sensing experience, I finally decided to just go for it. Now all I need to do is get it installed… I am fortunate enough to live within traveling distance of a partner installer (red pin on the map) but I’ve never been to such a place before and I’m a little uncertain of how to meet them and tell them that I’d like to get this magnet in my finger, please. (Are partners generally familiar with the Titan or should I expect to have to pitch it?) Their sign outside mentions body mods, but implants aren’t listed on their online appointment services (probably because it’s niche and their customers would need to order them first) so I’m guessing I’d want to call them and make an appointment to talk it over.
Time is another factor. I drive for a living so I was thinking about planning this around when I’d be able to get at least a few consecutive days off, just so it gets a better chance to rest and heal up. The next time for this would probably be in January, so I either meet the installer now and say “great, see you in January” or I wait until it’s closer and try not to think about it too much until then. I also have a ring on my traditional “non-dominant ring finger” install location that isn’t easy to remove, so I might go with the fingertip on my right hand instead and hope that the healing process goes well/fast enough for it to not be a problem.
Just for the record, I still feel just the tiniest bit crazy even considering an implant and I could technically still back off and resell it, but I wouldn’t have bought it in the first place unless I really wanted to experience life with it.
