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 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).
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
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 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.
