Help obtaining necklace..

on Thursday, June, 11, 2015 5:32 PM
Anybody know the guy who makes Sam Flynn's memory chip necklace?   I want to get one, but I closed my Ebay account.  They are completely corrupt, I refuse to do any sort of business with them at all.

Thanks.

found this one for sale on Bonanza:

but it's from Singapore, so it's likely the same vendor as the Ebay one.

here's a little more info on the RPF:

I personally like Ebay. Yes, there's some shady vendors on there, but I just ordered a bunch of exhaust components for my car on ebay, all came in just as advertised. You just need to use some common sense when ordering from ebay. If an item looks too good to be true, take it with a grain of salt, and don't be afraid to shop around. If a vendor is slow to give feedback, or seems to be obscuring their answers to your questions, buy from someone else.

Oh, one last bit, try not to order from sellers in Asia, especially China; even if they're legit, delivery takes a lot longer, and there's a language barrier. if you can get the same thing from a US vendor, order it from the US vendor. They usually get their items from the same source, but they take care of the legwork (getting the items direct from the vendor, getting the items through customs, etc) so it's less of a headache, and there's a little more protection in place. You can't always trust a vendor's rating, but it's a good way to gauge them, especially if you read their negative reviews.

I can probably make make that, Just ask.

Got it!  This thing is awesome.  I just wish there was some way to store data on it, heh.

Mine has multiple versions the whole grid, both the 1982 v1 version and the 2010 version.
My only problem is that I don't have a system capable of reading it yet.

My chip has a grid backup on it... for real!  Check this out:






It's just a simple USB memory stick encased in a custom resin shape, but hey... it stores files, right?

I used a laser cutter/etcher and a vector drawing program to make an acrylic 'chip'.  I then made a rubber mold of that.  Finally, I covered the inside of the mold with silver particles and poured resin inside the mold while holding the electronics from a USB memory stick submerged in the resin till it hardened.
Nothing too hard but it was a lot of steps.
