I wear them to go on walks with my dog. And luckily no one cares in my village because they’re all old and got dementia, so no one cares.

Inventor and electrical engineering assistant professor Ada Poon created a near-field power transmitter like those used to recharge wireless toothbrushes in their cradle. The difference is that hers uses tissue between the transmitter and medical device implanted in the body to amplify the electromagnetic waves. Her team then created an electrode and receiver unit about the size of a grain of rice that can be placed wherever electrical stimulation is required.

Let’s go through the list, shall we?

  • Stalking Cat was a computer programmer before he passed away earlier this year. He was Native American and trying to become closer to his totem animal. Through this, he helped pioneer all types of body modification and holds several Guinness Book Records.
  • Erik Sprague, aka Lizard Man, was a former PhD candidate. He has a bachelor’s in philosophy and is a performance artist: both through international side shows and as a music festival host.
  • Maria Jose Cristerna aka “La Mujer Vampiro”  (Vampire Woman) is the mother of four children and a fuckin’ lawyer. She started her transformation after getting out of an abusive marriage, and has talked out against domestic violence.
  • Rick Genest aka Rico The Zombie is a fucking international model, has more sponsorships than any of us could ever hope, and was featured in Lady Gaga’s Born This Way video. Not bad for a 27-year old former homeless punk, I’d say.
