So in thinking about which placement to have the xmagic installed. I had one thought, in the UK, most mifare readers will be fixed to the door which opens inwards towards the left, therefore the reader and handle are on the right hand of the door (facing from outside) which you would use your left hand to scan and push the handle. Lf readers tend to be in corporate buildings and have a tendency to be fixed to the wall on the right hand side, thus typically you would scan with your right hand and open the door with your left. So it makes sense for the xm+ and xem to be in separate placements. This is just based on my observations of using the card versions in day to day life.
Or… just hear me out… two xMagic?
as someone running with this mentality you can never have enough implants for the same place
I’m a big fan of 90° offsets, can squeeze a lot in that way
Back of hand
Thumb webbing when making a fist
Back of wrist isn’t technically 90°offset from back of hand, but it’s far enough away
So that’s 4 useable locations, x 2 hands
8 implants, and if each is dual frequency, that’s 16 tags
However, for the $29 price difference, I’d rather get the xMagic over the xM1. I love the idea of dual chip implants even if you don’t have an immediate plan for one of two chips. Mainly because you are bound to find a use for a spare T5577, or a spare Mifare, or NTAG.
Maybe you should get an xMagic in your left hand and a NExT in your right one? You get a mifare compatible chip, an NFC chip that’s compatible with most phones, and two T5577 chips. This should provide some of room for future projects for the price of two stabs!
Don’t tease me like that. I may get over excited and drop my credit card.
Wahey, i managed to learn to quote successfully for the first time.
Yes, an xmagic in L0 and next in R0 wpuld be a nice combination. I have four xnts (2 in each hand). So back of hand is the only option but i could use one for personal and the other hand for work.
