Actually this is enough of a concern… we probably won’t make any more xG3 v1 to be honest. If we get any more reports of breakage we’ll prob pull them.
Yeah ofc magnets in glass are extra likely just wanted to confirm this is the first. Would be weird if it never happened haha.
I’ve not seen it happen on my desk nor in a person for the v2 diametric… only the axial because of the pole at the end. I find that bit rather interesting.
Yes, the laser seal theory is also very convincing. I guess some xG3s might have unlucky positioned stresspoints and if you hit it just right it pops.
That should be @mrln’s pronoun
Laser light is absorbed uniformly throughout the glass wall, producing uniform heating and avoiding thermal shock. The laser can also be controlled to produce gradual cooling to avoid any residual stresses. Residual stress can be checked by dipping the glass into oil with a similar refractive index, and passing light through the them under a polarizer. Stress will appear as bright zones, while a stress-free region will be transparent.
It’s very hard to get stress free regions around the edge where the glass has bent over itself to help create the seal;
FYI the shots above are of a stress loaded glass seal, not an ideal seal… but still, those points around the edge are the hardest parts to get stress free, and this is exactly where the glass is snapping off (as you posted);
It’s also why the break is basically perfect.
How old is you dad if magnets weren’t around when he was 20?!?
Sounds like he works in HR. “You need 15 years experience with this new technology before we will hire you…”
Since magnets were discovered in 600 BC i would guess about 2640 years. No, i meant magnet implants not magnets in general.
Magnet implants were first theorized by Steve Haworth in the 1990s. (According to Wikipedia)
If that is true then they could be over 20 years old… I doubt that that will change your dad’s opinion though.
Nah, don’t think so
I have one more question and please tell me, when i get annoying: I have been browsing this forum for a bit and have seen things like L0 or similar. I know that they correlate to the placement, but can anyone explain to me the system behind that?
Aaahh, perfect! Thank you very much!
No kidding, you’ve logged 10 hours of read time so far.
Yes, a bit. that’s why i have so many questions
Not sure what part of Bayern you are, but I have relatives right in the south …its pretty conservative there, they would flip out if they found about mine - and I live on the other side of the world.
Breaking the problem into smaller parts.
Maybe a wearable is a good way to prove the technology side of things (assuming muggers don’t cut it off and rob you of it) and educate concerned parties, separate of the implanting issue.
I wanted my lip pierced when I was 16. My mother said no.
I pierced it I the bathroom at school with a safety needle, and shoved a hoop through. I was determined to get one.
I came home and my mom said to take it out. I told her she can try to get it out, but I will not. (I’m 6’4" and was a shit head teen)
Long story I kept it.
My point is, if you are determined to get something, you will. With or without our help. I would just say when it gets close to the point of you doing a selfie, please just talk it out. That is a huge risk for someone so young, with little experience.
I also think you will not be able to find someone willing to implant you.
I do hope it all works out for you however. I am just a blunt person.
Let me tell you: I was in NO WAY even thinking about doing it myself, because i have absolutely NO experience in things like that plus i probably couldn’t even do it, because i would be way too scared plus i am an Idiot and would most likely not just fail, but also cut my hand into pieces or something. I know the risk and i am not willing to take that risk, because i know, it won’t take me anywhere and would just result in injury and my parents hating me because i tried it behind their back, so don’t worry!
I live just at the border to Hessen, but my parents didn’t react like if they would flip out, when i mentioned something, so i think it will be fine, if i just wait until i am 18, then tell them, that i will be getting one and then get one plus they’re not religios at all and my father works with electronics and RFID in particular all the time at his job so i won’t get a problem with “Mark of the Beast” or “Government Control”, so that’s nice!
