With the help of Grindhouse Wetware, ‘Biohacker’ Tim Cannon has designed a computer capable of recording and transmitting real-time biometric data to android-powered devices.

A fellow biohacking enthusiast has embedded the thing (sealed in plastic and powered by a wirelessly rechargable battery) without anesthesia into Cannon’s forearm.

Motherboard TV sez:

Called the Circadia 1.0, the implant can record data from Cannon’s body and transfer it to any Android-powered mobile device. Unlike wearable computers and biometric-recording devices like Fitbit, the subcutaneous device is open-source, and allows for the user the full control over the data.
