  1. Ace, check the article linked above (and the related ones). I don’t think he’ll get a lot of sensation (most EM sensation requires you to be close; a couple inches from the field), if any, but you never know.

  2. I am currently studying to be an electrical engineer and magnetic implants have been very interesting. While I am currently a poor college student, if my job allows me to have these without threat of them getting ripped out, I plan on them.

  3. I think i put one of those in my dick and then look for some girls with tongue piercings 🙂

  4. Very interesting indeed. Finger implants seemed awesome but, well, as all geeks a better version/proof-of-concept would be required (I’m thrilled that those who did braved it and returned with their loot of fresh data). An earlobe, however, I could stand to lose in a pinch (I don’t use them much anyway). Keenly waiting yet again as with the earlier attempts.

  5. I’m confused about why the tissue would die with something as light as a safety pin. Women of the past wore clip ons for hours at a time and their tissue didn’t die. Why is it different with magnetism?

  6. to #10, im going to go with that with clip-ons you still have the entire depth of ear, vs with implants your greatly cutting off the amount of flesh your pinching, ergo death

  7. This is so cool, I can’t wait to hear how it turns out!
    At first my brain just didn’t understand the picture, until I read the title.

  8. I’m kind of terrified of what’ll happen if he ever needs an MRI or CT scan… :/

  9. #14 how is this different from any metal implant in the body in that respect?

    I still don’t get the tissue death thing – are the magnets so strong that the skin is truly being pinched?

  10. Wait a minute…hearing electromagnetism…is THAT what the clicking noises I hear are when my cell phone connects to the outside world while near a computer speaker? Sometimes I hear the clicking through my hearing aids, too.
