Man Implants Body Monitoring Device In Forearm (VIDEO)

Tim Cannon has a way with machines, so much so he’s decided to incorporate them within his own physical being.

Cannon is a bio-hacker, a wannabe cyborg who sees his implant of his circadia computer device in his forearm as the next logical step between humans and technology. The concept is straight out of a movie or TV show but the DIY hacker sees practical uses for his device which monitors his body and relay reports via an Android smartphone in real time.

‘I think that our environment should listen more accurately and more intuitively to what’s happening in our body,’ Cannon explained to DesignBoom. ‘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.’

There are tons of wearable health tech on the market, like nike’s fuelband bracelet, but the Cannon’s open-source device gives the user full control of how data is collected and used. Communications for now include body temperature readings, which are enabled via bluetooth and an internet connection.

Circadian was implanted by friends, not medical doctors. Check it out below.
