Man Invents Invisible Headphone Implants
A man has implanted invisible headphones directly into his ear, hinting at how music fans might modify their bodies in years to come Rich Lee, a self-professed "grinder" (someone who surgically enhances their body with technology), implanted a magnet in his ear which behaves like a speaker when working with a coil on his necklace. He says the most obvious use is to enjoy music, but he has some other creative ideas which will give him a sixth sense for exploring the world around him - something that will help with his declining eyesight. Writing in Hplus, Lee said: "The implant itself is completely undetectable to the naked eye. The device & coil necklace are are easily concealed under my shirt so nobody can really see it. "I can see myself using it with the GPS on my smartphone to navigate city streets on foot. I plan to hook it up to a directional mic of some sort (possibly disguised as a shirt button or something) so I can hear conversations across a room. Having a mic hooked up to it and routed through my phone would be handy. "You could use a simple voice stress analysis app to detect when people might be lying to you. Not to say that is a hard science, but I'm sure it could come in handy at the poker table or to pre-screen business clients. I have a contact mic that allows you to hear through walls. That might be my next implant actually." Lee has ideas for other projects, and has offered himself as a lab rat to other grinders who want to test their own body hacks.
