Why-Fi?

Grinders—body modification artists who specialize in biohacking—like to implant nonmedical stuff in their bodies.

The latest is PegLeg, an implantable wireless file-sharing device the size of half a card deck that can securely hold data and stream content to connected devices.

The implant doesn’t solve any particular problem. It’s also legally dicey—by credo there’s no password protection so authorities could access illegal files and prosecute the person in whom the files were stored. 
 
So, why?
 
“To see technology progress is really cool,” says grinder Michael Laufer. “The only thing better is to be the ones bringing it into existence.”
