(I'm reasonably certain I once suggested powering implants off whatever mechanisms the body uses to power things, but I can't find the idea now. Maybe it was someone else?) [DrCurry, Jan 18 2008]

       Cue GFP ideas...

       Bakeable ....... expensive to license and make, but it could certainly be done. Powered by a lithium-ion battery, controlled by Bluetooth ..... charged by an induction charging coil under the skin somewhere.

       You'll need to implant batteries, too.
DrCurry, Jan 18 2008
  

       Just buy sets of thermal imagining goggles for both your friends.   

       Also gr.: "I"

       Kind of unrelated, but as far as implants go, you can do better.

       You mean he should be getting a glow-in-the-dark penis?

       Points for brevity and improper capitalization.

       It would take a lot of power to get a visible signal from underneath the epidermis, and it wouldn't be visible in anything but the closet. Also, if it was bright enough it would likely cause heat damage and cancer.

       //i want to glow in the dark//   

       Wouldn't bathing in depleted plutonium be a simpler method?

       Handle with care, or you'll have major, major issues with your body rejecting it. Have a look for guys who tried to implant magnets in their skin (not pretty, rare earth magnets are fragile and cause an immune reaction).   

       Leiny, put your hand over a torch; your fingers will glow visibly. Not brightly, perhaps, but visibly.

       // depleted plutonium //   

       Oh, please .... no such thing exists. DU, yes, and it's not very glow-in-the-dark either ..... but that ? Read your Physical Chemistry textbook about the Lanthanides and Actinides before you make comments like that ....

       [8th], had he said "depleted unobtanium", your anno would have been equally true, but would you have bothered posting? Can't you take the thrust of what is said, rather than missing it totally for pedantic details?   

       [edit: oops, nasty. Sorry...]

       Or...just run really, really fast towards people. Your natural infra-red emission will then be shifted into the visible.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jan 19 2008
  

       //i want to glow in the dark.// I would also like you to glow in the dark. I would like the luminosity to reflect the intensity of your cerebral activity, most notably the areas of cognitive reasoning. This solves two problems in one. You will glow in the dark, satisfying your needs, but only as long as you think, satisfying our needs.

       // Can't you take the thrust of what is said, rather than missing it totally for pedantic details? //   

       Err...... no ? No. No, definitely not. Pedantry first, then speeling, and gramer then, and finally the idea......
