Tim Cannon Had a Friend Install a Chip Implant into His Arm

Tim Cannon is a biohacker who created a chip implant in his arm that is capable of recording and transmitting his biometrical data. The implant is not small either — it is contained in a box with a battery that can be charged remotely. But one of the most shocking things about this implant is that it was installed and stitched into Cannon's skin by a fellow biohacker, who is not a medical professional.

Cannon can truly call himself a DIY cyborg, who now has a circadia chip implant in his arm that is in tune with his body. Cook explains that his reasoning for installing this implant is so that his environment can be more responsive to his needs. He explains: "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."
