I mean… I thought we covered this. Lol!
I am constantly surprised and seriously impressed with the fact that DT and all the people surrounding it are coming up with ideas and then actually making them, testing them and bringing them to us to experiment, enjoy and participate in the further development of.
This community and it’s intersection of tech/humanity is super awesome and such a positive example of what’s possible with technology and a bit of open-mindedness.
Even if I’m not plotting which implants to try next in future this community will always stick in my mind as an example of what is possible, in spite of the over-commercialised, cold and sometimes pretty awful space which a lot of new technology ‘products’ are born into/out of.
Hopefully this isn’t too much of a ramble! Keep it up @amal et al.
I was being discreet…
I’m just excited that I might actually have an excuse to go to Australia!
hahahahah happy to be your excuse Mr Giant
A quick little snippet or two
I think it cost me $88 AUD to ship from Australia to the USA, one small box.
The Australian postal service isn’t too bad, remarkably, but it does take a month or two to get foreign items in. I would guess it’s the high volume of Chinese products. I received last month an item I ordered in April 2020, turns out it got misdirected to Malaysia (from the faded blue stamp on it).
just another example
Positively surprised with the order quickly and efficiently. When the customs broker was having problems with the contents, Amal called and explained the details. Fast delivery to Poland. I haven’t seen such customer support in a long time. I will be coming back for more implants that make everyday life easier However, despite free shipping, domestic customs costs were almost half the value of the package. It would be cheaper to order and send as a private person as a gift
ONE MORE EXAMPLE
AND AGAIN (now you are just showing off!)
Great customer service as others have already said. I needed 2 NExT implants, 2 xAC access controllers and a proxmark3 easy, so I asked them if it would be possible to make a custom bundle, turns out it was indeed possible so i was able to have a discount on those items.
Sadly, living in the middle of nowhere in Sardinia, the shipping cost was insane, as DHL included a 45USD surcharge, but it is clearly not DT’s fault, and the additional ~35USD and VAT sharing discounts for European costumers definitely made it more bearable
I have nothing to say about the NExT as it’s not implanted yet, but I’ve played around with the Proxmark and i love the fact that they’ve included a t5577 card and two mifare 1k cards and a keyfob. I think it could be a good idea to include an ntag216 card too, it would be convenient to have one for testing before writing on the actual NExT!
It’s been a whole 9 days since the last compliment
So here we go
A bit of background:
- 17yo gets implant without his parents permission.
- Parents force him to get it removed
- Take him to Doctor, but FAILED Removal
- Take him to Surgeon and finally Removed 2.5 months before his 18th Birthday.
- Implant disposed of as “biohazard material”
- Community members step up and offer to fund a replacement for his 18th Birthday.
- Dangerous Thing Step in on offer to supply a free replacement
What other companies would do that???
this thread was due a bump, and I realised I had not shared this other example
That came in 2 models
One was the disc…still available
the other was the Flex narrow , no longer in production because the chip itself is a poor performer.
It is a much better in theory than practice implant. Even the full sized card is not great.
I asked Amal to make me one as a custom job after he stopped offering them for sale, he refused, simply because of how poorly the chip performed.
All that to say,
How awesome is Amal, to “just say no” to a customer because product reputation is more valuable to him than $$$.
Not all companies are like that…

Haha well really it had to do with what I know would have happened… it would have sucked… and you would have not been happy with it… and that goes against rule #1 - make happy cyborgs.
i will try then give review
It’s rare that you can come across a company who make incredible products, is ethical and conscientious about what they do, has a great community, and stellar customer service…but that is Dangerous Things in every way.
I love DT’s implants and get a new one whenever I can justify it. From the great sales like Cyborg Weekend to the occasional opportunities to participate in alpha and beta tests like the Apex Mega Spectrum, to the super fast shipping to the well-crafted packaging - you really can’t go wrong.
