I would like to introduce myself, my name is Phil Hutchinson,
I am new on the element14 team and will be helping out in the running of design challenges.
My background is as a Project manager, events manager but also a maker.
I am a member of Leeds Hackspace and plan to attend EMF camp this year in the UK.
This weekend I have become a Cyborg as part of Leeds International festival, I had a Glass NFC Type 2 Tag implanted in my left hand;
Model: xNT Glass NFC Type 2 Tag
IC: NTAG216 / 13.56MHz
Bioglass: Schott 8625
Size: 2.12mm x 12mm
Projected lifespan: 10-15 years (if NFC is still relevant or my body doesn't reject it! haha)
I will be writing about my experiences over the coming weeks as well as working an a bit of video content of my partner and I being implanted.
In addition to being a maker and a cyborg, I am a sci-fi, anime, music, movie and game fan who spent his time in the world of chiptunes and console modding for most of my teen years.
...Still terrible at soldering....
Nice to meet you all!
