WARNING: These kits definitely contain dangerous things. While the transponder devices contained within the Cyborg Transformation Kit have undergone several quality checks during manufacturing and have been put through a battery of tests with various private labs, they have not been tested or certified by any government regulatory agency for implantation or use inside the human body. Use of these devices is strictly at your own risk.

Cyborg Transformation Kit

If you’re ready to upgrade your meat sack with next generation implant tech and immediately start building cyber-solutions, you need the ultimate cyborg transformation kit! Our xNT implant allows you to talk to ISO14443A systems as well as NFC smartphones and readers. Our xEM can emulate several of the most popular types of 125khz RFID transponders in use today! Along with these great implants, you also get our xLED field testers for both frequency ranges, as well as our RFID Diagnostic Card which can show you the frequency and duty cycles of random readers you encounter in the wild.

Cyborg Transformation & Lifestyle Kit

In addition to the Cyborg Transformation Kit, the Lifestyle add-on includes some additional goodies! In only a few minutes you can build an access control project with our xEM Access Controller to let you open your room, house, or garage door with a wave of your hand.. or with a little more tinkering, unlock your car or even start your motorcycle! Our KBR1 reader acts as a USB keyboard that “types out” the UID serial number of your xNT, enabling a simple computer logon solution. If you’re a Arduino fan, the PN532 module can NFC enable your custom project and read your xNT!

Testing process, return policy, lifetime warranty
Testing Process
Our x-series chips come pre-loaded inside injector systems with steel needles and cannot typically be read while inside the needle. Because of this, we perform a full test on every x-series tag before it is loaded into the injector assembly and sterilized. We have also conducted several tests on our x-series chips and cataloged those tests here.

Return Policy
All sales of this product are final, and no returns will be accepted. We keep tight control over chain of custody on our products through manufacture, sterilization, warehousing, and shipment. We would never re-sell something that has left our control chain and been returned, and you would definitely not want to buy one either. Before you purchase, do your research to be sure you know you know the product’s features, capabilities, reader compatibility, performance specifications, limitations, etc.

Lifetime Warranty
If you do purchase one of our products and experience a failure, we offer a full lifetime warranty on all of our products. You will need to return the product for testing and analysis, and if it is malfunctioning, we will ship you a replacement free of charge.

Practical read range/performance expectation
Passive RFID and NFC chips are magnetically coupled devices that power themselves and communicate data over a shared magnetic field the reader generates. This means their effective read range and performance depends entirely on how well the antenna coils of both the tag and reader couple with each other. This typically means the shape, size, and orientation of both antennas must be complimentary.

Unfortunately, most reader devices, including mobile phones, typically have antennas designed with thin PCB traces made into blocky rectangular shapes that lay along a flat plane. These antenna designs are great for coupling with and reading large flat labels and access cards which also share this antenna shape, but they have a hard time coupling to the very small cylindrical antenna coil inside our x-series chips. Most mobile phones and reader devices have a “sweet spot” or two that must be located and used each time to get consistent results. Other devices, such as the Samsung Ezon electronic deadbolt lock, sometimes use wire wound coil antenna loops inside, which work much more reliably with small glass transponders like our x-series chips. You should not expect your USB reader or mobile device to achieve the same read range with our x-series chips that you normally get with a label tag or card style tag. Here are some example videos detailing typical read performance and how to find that “sweet spot”.

The xLED can help! The xLED is a diagnostic device that mimics the x-series antenna coil winding and shows you the best possible location and rotation/orientation for holding your x-series transponder up to any reader. That’s why we include it in our deluxe bundle!


How/where are x-series chips installed? Aftercare? What to expect?
Our x-series transponders are typically installed into the webbing between the metacarpal bones of the index finger and thumb, resting parallel to the index metacarpal. The reason they are installed in the hand has to do with the extremely short read range of x-series chips and the typical use case being some form of access control where the tag must be presented to a fixed reader of some kind. The suggested placement within the hand was chosen due to the lack of major nerve bundles or blood vessels running through that area.

Achieving a safe installation definitely requires a steady hand and experience performing aseptic procedures. Dangerous Things prefers our customers locate one of our professional body piercing or body modification partners to complete the installation of this product. If no partners are available in your area, you should be able to follow this guide to finding a professional in your area who is willing to assist you. For aftercare information and what to expect, please read our X-Series FAQ page.

Can I get an MRI? What about airport security? Playing sports? etc.
You have questions! That’s understandable. The short answer is; it’s all good. If you’re looking for more specific answers, we have an extensive FAQ page that deals with many of the most commonly asked questions regarding installation of our x-series transponders.
