Meet biohacker Anastasia Synn, magician with 26 self-implanted microchips and magnets under her skin

, | | September 18, 2019

[Anastasia] Synn has 26 microchips and magnets implanted throughout her body. Unlike many biohackers who experiment purely out of personal interest, Synn does it for her magic career. These days, she’s doing less performing on stage and spending more time designing bodily implants for other magicians.

STAT sat down with Synn on [September 1] at “Biohack the Planet” to learn more about her bodily implants.

[STAT:] What do you use these implants to do?

[Synn:] I’m a magician, so I use them in my magic act. And I also use them in my day-to-day life — to unlock my door at home.

The computer that I want to put my leg that we’re working on right now will actually have an NFC and a Wi-Fi and a Bluetooth. [NFC, or near field communication, is a technology that uses magnetic fields to connect two devices when they’re brought into close proximity with each other.]

It’ll be able to read something by NFC, transfer it to my phone with Wi-Fi, transfer it to my hairpiece with Bluetooth, and then vibrate the magnet in my ear so I can receive secret information that no one else can hear.
