ALTERNATIVE CYBORG IMPLANTS
What else can they stick in your body nowadays?
The NFC chip is one of many implant options available right now. Another is magnetic implants. These vibrate under magnetic influence enabling the wearer to actually ‘feel’ the magnetic fields about them. The previously mentioned Professor Warwick is working with teams to create ways of tuning this so that magnetic implants will enable people to feel variations subtly.
Another cuttingedge implant comes in the form of North Sense. These attach to the chest via piercings and vibrate when the wearer faces north. After a while the wearer no longer notices this, kind of like that you don’t feel your feet hit the floor as you walk. Then, theoretically, the implant can be removed and you will continue to sense where true north is.
This is something certain animals can do naturally – and it’s argued we as humans have evolved to forget. Now you can biohack evolution to get that sense back. Pretty cool, huh?
