xSeries vs a Microwave

Nope, no reaction at all. I doubt there is anything for it to arc to, it’s a fully contained circuit. Same way I can put a metal bowl in there as long as it’s never near the edge.
I would have gotten video but can’t through my microwave door :frowning:

Put your phone in the microwave to record it…duhhh :wink:

Charges it at the same time I hear.

Maybe worth noting that when I worked at the University i had an accident, I had a nasty RF (120GHz) burn right over the top of my 125KHz chip that still works. I would be unable to say if there was any sparking or heat build up but as stated it still works…

Haha that’s where that warning about messing with HF RF circuits came from…

oh yes, someone (an academic who should have known better) left an experiment running unwatched and without note. Needless to say they got into significant trouble.

Fuck that’s awesome. I’m filming this and adding this to the testing page!

I looked like you using your magnifier watching it :rofl:

I used an X Field Detector and it still worked fine afterwards. A few minutes later when I tried to put it back in it’s capsule the lower quality glass in the field detector broke. I doubt the actual implants would do that, though. There’s no metal in their glass.

dunno… never tested it… but might be heat from iron rod … the end without any insulating resin is the one that broke so maybe heat from the rod had something to do with it… dunno…

Anecdotally: I dropped it from torso height onto tile after the microwaving (because I am clumsy) it was fine. It bounced a bit but no damage.

Ignoring the lunacy.

I’m kinda impressed here. ABSOLUTELY NO OFFENCE INTENDED. It’s interesting to see a group of technically minded people apply their immense talents in the manner of 8 year olds.

Let’s break it!
Stomp on it!
That didn’t work.
Get a brick!!!
No, get a rock, the BIG rock!!!

I’m a firm believer that this level of thought / work process actually produces the greatest gains in the shortest time frame. Seriously, Kudos.

This makes me want to bypass the door switch so that I can turn it on with the door open, and stick my hand in it with it on and see how hot it feels

Actually nah, that’s too dangerous

Your body would absorb the microwaves and well cook your meat. The implant would likely be the coolest part of the hand. At least from my basic understanding of how they work.

Actually if it was something with further spaced metal that would arc (maybe a flex series tag but I’m not that sure), the hand would protect the tag from the microwave energy

Would it given the coil is small and a single piece essentially? I have only see arching between seperate pieces of metal.

Oh wait that is true. So, it probably shouldn’t

But I’m case it will arc, the hand should protect it

I opened my microwave once and it didn’t shut off, I swear it made my eyeballs go wacky.

Makes me think of SG1 and Thor saying he needs dumber ideas to help against the Replicators.
