By having the system permanently embedded in your body, you have a different type of controlled environment which cannot be interfered with by the various day to day lives of people.
The electronic components within the system are small but require a 3D model to assist in keeping the system as small as possible. A draft of the 3D design can be see below.
14bit accelerometer has a built-in low and high-pass filter. Shake, Single, Double and Directional Tap Detection. Freefall and Motion Detection.
8 X 0603 bright white SMD leds
LED bar graph, allows menu for cyber tools and data visualization through skin.
RFID & NFC reader/writer to allow arm-over access to data from other RFID/NFC applications.
Memory, stores RFID tags, data from the temperature & accelerometer.
High Precision Temperature Sensor, realtime monitor of your body's temperature.
Atmel picoPower 8-bit AVR RISC-based microcontroller.
Single-chip Bluetooth® low energy Connectivity IC.
20mAh Super Safe Fullriver Lipo Battery.
Coil charger for wireless charging capability.
LiPo Battery Charger.

Safety and Materials
- Bionic Yourself (B10N1C) shell/enclosure will be made from a medical grade silicone
- 316L Stainless Steel EMG Terminals will be utilized by piercing Barbels MAKE-UB312-micro.
- Special super safe Lipo battery Fullriver (301218HS20C)
- Humidity sensor (HTU21D) for safety, if humidity level rises inside enclosure, that means it is time to remove the device.
- EMG circuit from BITalino project (page 32,41)
- Adafruit Arduino libraries and reference schematic for MMA8451, HTU21D, NRF8001.

Hackaday provides the best place to publish this project, because it is a project that hackers will appreciate. Part of the appeal in releasing this project on Hackaday is to open the doors to criticism and improvement. Let's build the smallest, safest, simplest, and most robust low-energy implant with uploading Arduino code over the air.
