The Northstar device beneath the skin shortly after implantation.

Grindhouse Wetware is an organization focused on experimenting with technology to augment human capabilities. The company is most well known for their Circadia device, a wireless biometric sensor that was implanted into co-founder Tim Cannon in October 2013.[1] Grindhouse has been featured in television shows such as The Big Picture with Kal Penn[2] and Taboo on the National Geographic Channel,[3] Joe Rogan Questions Everything on Syfy,[4] as well as podcasts including Future Grind[5] and Remarkably Human.[6]

In November 2015, Grindhouse members Tim Cannon, Shawn Sarver, Justin Worst, Jessica Waldrip, Michael Seeler, and Marlo Webber had prototypes of Grindhouse's Northstar device implanted into during simultaneous procedures occurring at the "Cyborg Fair" in Düsseldorf, Germany and at a studio in Pittsburgh. The implantation procedure was featured in an episode of the MTV documentary series True Life. Also featured in the episode was the public debut of the morse code functionality of Grindhouse's Bottlenose device at the first Pittsburgh Maker Faire.[7]

Projects

  • Circadia is an implantable device that sends biometric data wirelessly via Bluetooth to a phone or tablet and is powered through inductive charging.[8] The first ever Circadia implant occurred in October 2013 in Essen, Germany, when body modification artist Steve Haworth implanted the device into Grindhouse co-founder Tim Cannon.
  • Northstar is an implantable device that features five LEDs which shine through the skin.[9][10]
  • Bottlenose is a wearable technology device that uses implanted or haptic magnets as data inputs to transmit information to the user through nerves.[11][12][13]
