Terrible or terribler–whatever your opinion on the future, I think we can all agree that this video of a “DIY Cyborg” having his friend implant a massive computer chip into his arm without any anesthesia is both OMG and FAIL.

The chip German biohacker Tim Cannon had implanted into his forearm is entirely open source, allowing him full control over the biometric data it collects. It’s also huge, since it comes with a battery pack that charges wirelessly.

I’m eagerly anticipating our cyborg future, but will probably wait until chip design gets a little sleeker and we can be pumped full of glorious numbing agents.
