Guy implants a huge chip into his arm

Biohacker implanted what is probably the first ever computer chip implant that can monitor, record and transmit his biomertics. And he did it without the help of certified doctor.

Tim Cannon is a biohecker who pushed a rather large computer chip beneath the skin of his left forearm. Probably the first chip implant of its kind,  reads and transmits his biometric data to Android devices. Interesting thing is, no regular certified doctor would be allowed to implant the miniature computer, without the approval of medical authorities,  that is why he decided to perform the surgery by his own. Well not exactly by his own, but with the help of  'body modification enthusiasts',  such as Steve Haworth, who actually conducted the surgery.

The chip implant is called Ciradia 1.0 and can record Tim's body data then transfer it to any Android powered mobile device. It is also open-source, so users can fully control the way data is collected and used.

Best to let Tim explain the purpose and vision of Circadia and its future successor generations , "I think that our environment should listen more accurately und more intuitively to what's happening in our body. So if, for example, I've had a stressful day, the Circadia will communicate that to my house and will prepare a nice relaxing atmosphere for when I get home: dim the lights, let in a hot bath."

One small step in direction where we all be using this kind of nano computers. Life will be simpler and you will not be able to lose anything else

This is quite interesting, but I would prefer something smaller.

Looks like it hurts, but hey, small price to pay in the name of science and brighter future.
