Okay - so. I was originally gonna talk to Amal directly, but I thought it’d be better if this were public, so anybody else looking into getting that big ol’ FlexNExT can ponder custom options.
Okay, so my main questions and concerns:
Found a better way to get a still measurement of the width of my wrist where I want it implanted, it’s barely over 4cm. So yeah, my wrist is about the same width of the 4.1 cm FlexNExT… I fear that may be an issue.
Aside from that, I’m thinking about getting 4 LEDs, if possible. White ones. I’m debating whether a 3 light pattern will look cooler on my wrist, or a 4 light pattern.
If I go with a 4 lights, it’d be a pattern like this.
Depends on what’s currently capable. @amal, what do you think? Would it be wise for me to get a FlexNExT later this year with my wrist size, and do you think adding an extra LED would be an issue?
Remember: your wrist is as wide as the flexNExT, but it’s not a flat plane: it’s an oval-ish section. The half-perimeter of your wrist is significantly larger than the implant - which will wrap around it some, at the edges.
I am in the same situation and it fits just fine.
As for 4 blinkies, I have a feeling it’ll kill the field for the bullseye, and/or there might not be enough space. But Amal probably knows better.
Well, now I feel dumb. I definitely miss measured my wrist. I was actually more accurate with my first measurement…
Four circles are supposed to be placements for four LEDs, just so I can get an idea. Colored it brown but y’know, probably should’ve gotten brown paper instead, and taped on white circles. But even so, this gives me a great look at how it’d be.
The issue is that the design of the bullseye tag used for the flexNExT doesn’t really offer 4 places to position LEDs. You could fit 4 on yes but one or possibly two of the LEDs would simply not light up.
Ouuuu, bet. Well, seeing I didn’t win the $1000 video making contest I entered (I definitely shoulda won… my video was better…) I have a lot more time before making any biohacking purchases, cuz I still gotta save up.
Gonna be saving up money, probably will make that purchase later this year or early 2021.
I made the cardboard model for the flexSIID. I glued it on my prefered position and worked with it (we have gloves at work - so it wasn’t a problem) I think this is an idea, if the chip would disturb you, when you are lifting objects,… doing many stuff with your hands.
