I’m very interested in getting the xSIID LED implant as my first implant however other than writing a url, instagram link, or something of that nature, what are some other capabilities/limitations of it? (I am based in the US so I know that may limit some capabilities)
I know that responsibly I should choose an implant based on my needs but I’ve been pretty adamant about this one specifically for months now and doubt this interest would change unless another LED implant exists.
First things first - it can glow!
And with apps like NFCTools, you can make it do things with your phone - mine, for example, just opens my vaccination app (just for all those people who claim you get chipped when getting vaxxed )
Thats honestly one of my primary motivations for choosing the xSIID rather than another chip I’m only a college student with little needs, so why get a regular chip that can open up a url if I can get one that does that AND glow.
lmaoooooo that’s extremely funny. I have to do that at least once when I get my implant.
That’s a good point. My college doesn’t utilize nfc technology that much, the only place I’ve seen it so far would be with a few doors, but they’re always unlocked anyways. The only other capability would maybe be for public transport.
However, it would be good to know for the future in case I have more options to use nfc technology at school. How would I be able to figure out what system my college uses?
Mine was placed 2 days ago and i cannot scan it yet
is that normal that it takes some days ?
I put a Next in other hand and that one works fine and taginfo can find the Next but the XSIID is not visible.
When they put in the XSIID it was bleeding a lot and i think it’s because of that and some swelling it does not work yet ?
Like the guys above already said, it can take some time - I’d say be prepared for two weeks, if it blinks earlier you’re happy
Mine took about a week to be visible, if I remember it correctly.
For scanning the chip itself, we’re talking about roughly the same timeframe - if you can’t read the chip after two weeks and your hand looks totally normal again (so no blueness, no swelling and all that), you can slowly start to worry Though this all depends a lot on how your body behaves - mine, for example, loves to overreact a bit with blueness and swelling…
The hand where the Next is implanted i have a small mounted blue swelling , i am afraid the Next chip migrated higher … or could this be some swelling and chip is still lower lol freaking me out hahaha
You can find the chip’s location by either poking around in your hand (don’t do that now) or by putting a small strong magnet on the skin - I did this for fun when my implant was a few days old, and unless you keep the magnet there for a longer time, it does no damage.
Poking around in your hand to find the implant is okay after some weeks, but I’d be very careful with that after just a few days… so maybe better use the magnet
The blue swelling can be install-related, maybe some little vein that was nicked, or maybe even just the installer grabbing the skin a bit too strong (would lead to that kind of blueness on my slightly over-sensitive body…)
