Editor's Notes

  • It was around this time I learnt about Kevin Warwick.

  • Cannon created the sensor, called Circadia 1.0, using a Bluetooth connector, computer chip, and fitted it with LED lights.

    These LEDs act as ‘status lights’ that can be used to light up a tattoo on Cannon’s arm, under which the sensor is fitted.

    Cannon created the sensor, called Circadia 1.0, pictured, using a Bluetooth connector, computer chip, and fitted it with LED lights. The sensor is set to go on sale 'soon' for around $500 (£313) and is open source, meaning the data can be collected and used in whichever way the owner wants Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2487100/Now-THATS-wearable-technology-Man-implants-mini-SKIN-track-body-temperature.html#ixzz499govpaj  Follow us: @MailOnline on Twitter | DailyMail on Facebook
    German-based biohacker Tim Cannon fitted the biometric sensor, pictured, under the skin on his forearm. It connects by Bluetooth to an Android tablet. The sensor tracks changes in his body's temperature. If the temperature reaches a certain level, a text message is sent warning him of a fever Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2487100/Now-THATS-wearable-technology-Man-implants-mini-SKIN-track-body-temperature.html#ixzz499gWZ4ej  Follow us: @MailOnline on Twitter | DailyMail on Facebook
