Cyborg Dynafit – Just in time for Haloween

Post by blogger | October 25, 2010      

Cyberpunk and biopunk writers love to play around with the concept of brain implants that interface directly to your computer. But how about implants that hook up with a pair of Dynafit bindings?

The other day we got an intriguing comment from blog commenter Tay, who said he accidentally made a Dynafit toe pin hole in his elbow. I couldn’t help but wonder if Tay is really part of a government conspiracy to place Dynafit fittings in every U.S. citizen? If that’s the case, what’s to keep the tech fittings from blocking signals to all our existing government brain implants? And how do they function while combined with a tinfoil hat?

Backcountry skiing binding injury.

In Tay's words: 'The picture on the left shows the hole the toe piece made, the little dark circle in the middle of the bone at the bottom of the x-ray. To the upper left of that hole there is a fuzy white area, that's where the pin tore through. The x-ray on the right, in the middle you can see the bit of bone they had to remove.'

In all seriousness, aside from Halloween jokes, we’re glad Tay is okay after being “punched” and wish him the best. Lesson is that anything sharp can become injurious when gravity is involved. Thanks Tay for sending over your film.

Oh, and dynapunk, anyone? We have parts here if you want to rig your costume for the big evening.

    Hi Chris, the project is moving along. Planning on a bunch of blogs about it in a few weeks. Stay tuned.

    Physical bindings are sooooo old school! Everyone knows that the new cool implants are the magnetic ones to match the magnetic inserts on the skis 😉

    Ptor, of all people, I figured you’d be the one to get it 🙂
