2019-03-23 (Sa) ATA5577 xEM Installation COMPLETED

Tim, my podcast co-host, got his Vivokey Spark installed with my favorite piercing artist and that meant a trip to St. Cloud, Minnesota. Vivokey was the implant I got last month in Austin, Texas.

While in St. Cloud, I got an xEM tag which is a rewriteable low-frequency RFID tag on which I hope to clone my work badge. The installation was almost rote at this point. The implant went into the knife edge of my right hand which makes it the first data-carrying implant in my right hand. A few hours after the installation, I changed bandages and took a photo of the installation site.

Twenty-four hours after the installation I took another photo and kept bandages off the area. It has not felt uncomfortable since the needle was withdrawn and I look forward to trying to copy my work badge when I get an appropriate reader.
