What is Biohacking?

Biohacking is a broad term covering a wide variety of activities, but in general, it is the idea that applying systemic thinking to human biology, that is, treating people like computers, has the potential to make great strides in health and well-being. The idea is that you can take something like diet and use a systemic thinking approach to optimize human functioning and make yourself better than you could be.

But for many, biohacking is nothing more than performing body modifications with cybernetic implants. In fact, one of the trends in biohacking are precisely the magnet implants in the fingers.

This includes the installation of a small magnet that passes through the skin of a finger for the purpose of "feeling" the magnetism.

What are finger magnet implants?

Many consider magnet finger implants to be an interesting new way to give a "sixth sense" to the human being. A magnet implant consists of a 52n neodymium magnet coated in 24-carat gold and then placed inside a silicone or Teflon shell to perform a biological test.

Gold, silicon and Teflon are ecological, which means that they do not react to the body's internal immune system and are therefore not rejected. The magnet is then inserted into the body, most commonly into the non-dominant ring finger. This is due to the fact that it is your less useful finger, in case something goes wrong.

The procedure is performed primarily by body modification specialists in tattoo shops or piercings, does not involve anesthesia, and is relatively inexpensive. Once the painful procedure is over and the small wound on the finger is removed with surgical glue, you can immediately start lifting clips and any other small ferrous objects with your finger.

What happens after you get magnet implants in your fingers?

After a few weeks of recovery, you will begin to feel what is known as "buzzing," or the magnetic fields around you, that react because of the magnet on your finger. What can be perceived at this stage with your new sixth sense?

  • You have the ability to perceive magnetic fields as physical interactions.

  • The perception of the world has changed completely, you can feel the buzzing of power lines over your head.

  • You can hear your microwave buzzing as your food turns in all directions.

Biohacking is carrying out body modifications with magnet implants and obtaining cybernetic advantages installed in our own body.

According to studies conducted in recent years, this biological hacking is completely safe, with no other side effects, in addition to the small accidental discovery that people with this implant are immune to tasers and electrical weapons.

Other examples of implants include pacemakers that help balance abnormal heart rhythms, hearing aids that are implanted directly into the auditory nerve of the ear, prostheses and electronic prostheses, and brain implants that help treat tremors in Parkinson's patients.

On the other hand, in addition to magnet implants in the fingers, the other common biohacking trend is based on the RFID chip, which is implanted with a large needle to inject a microchip-sized glass tablet into the skin between the thumb and index finger, or arm.

When programmed correctly, the RFID chip can be a very interesting tool. When someone passes their smartphone over the chip area, you can have them instantly open a website or application for which the chip is programmed.
