Transcending the Human, DIY Style

Anonym2

2011 is of to a pretty good start… Transcending the Human, DIY Style @ Wired:

Anonym is a biohacker, a woman who has spent the last several years learning how to extend her own senses by putting tiny magnets and other electronic devices under her own skin, allowing her to feel electromagnetic fields, or — if her latest project works — even magnetic north.
