I’ve told them as well. Amal also has a call scheduled with one of the co-founders soon. As long as you’re paying their fees, they don’t seem to mind.
I asked because you never know how people / companies react. I had a machining shop subcontractor call me once to tell me they were cancelling all our orders right here and now, because they found out the parts we asked them to machine were gun parts. Really surprised by their reaction, but there ya go: they said they didn’t want their company connected to guns in any way for some reason.
I was afraid Purewrist might say they want nothing to do with implants. Seeing as though EMV isn’t hot to be associated with that particular activity, I thought Purewrist might have the same knee-jerk reaction.
Gonna get around to activating mine and sending it off I think. They sent me a second email, saying they sent me a second one. I was waiting until I got it, but seeing as Amal didn’t have too tough a time with yours, I will just send the one.
Have you tried any places that don’t traditionally use a pin? Like a drive thru or ?
For instance my vending machines at work have no pin pad…
Working on it I’m trying to get the thing installed first so the observations are more valuable. That’s tomorrow afternoon. Don’t worry, I’ll take pictures and document every reader I try it on and report back. That’s just how I roll.

Excellent! Now, let’s just hope they don’t send you an updated mini-card next week.
Looks like you went through with the L3 placement. Good choice.
Did you take any video or images of installation?
That fuel payment seemed to read faster than at the terminal you did your first test payment on.
So glad it works! Mine is sitting to be mailed out to @Amal tomorrow.
If my xSIID wasn’t right there, I would consider it. I also have a giant vein there, and that makes me feel uncomfortable for a
Self Install pro to do it.
Thinking of my knife edge, as that would be easier
to do alone for a pro to do.
I hope your “Pro” has an autoclave for the needle.
I think knife edge is also a good spot, my Left Knife Edge ( L5 ) I have reserved for my Apex, Which in time will take the place of my Payment currently in my R4.5
Glad you guys in the USA now have Paymet conversions options available to you.
He has a tattoo parlor that will autoclave it for him. Sadly, the tattoo parlor piercer is not comfortable enough to use a 4G needle.
yeah, I think it will work for now. I really only care about the password management of the Apex, the payment isn’t really a priority for me. Oddly enough, I can now get the payment before the yubikey like implant.
Have you test at anything that you can use a pin at? How’s that go?
Also curious how it goes at say a drive thru, I would imagine the restaurant would try to disable pin functions as much as they can
Looks great, I know that is not your first flex implant, but was that your first one with the Custom flex needle?
Which procedure did you install?
Was there any lube involved in the install?
The heck with lube. Did you use the PMK? And just how long did “The Stranger” last before it started throbbing?
Just spit on it
No painkillers. Opted out and requested the 5mm needle, for science. My body mod artist marked out L3 with ink. He did the whole thing with the needle, bevel up. He just worked it along the channel between my 4th and 5th metacarpal.
The pain was actually not bad at all. It did start to get pretty painful and tough to progress when we got close to the wrist. The bevel of the needle doesn’t separate the fascia as much at the barrel, so it was a bit tough to get the implant all the way in, but we worked it out.
I’m feeling pretty good right now. Better than my last one.
