More Details

WARNING This kit definitely contains dangerous things. While the VivoKey Spark transponder has undergone several quality checks during manufacture and has been put through a battery of tests with various private labs, it has not been tested or certified by any government regulatory agency for implantation or use inside the human body. Use of this device is strictly at your own risk.

Next Generation Cryptobionics

The VivoKey Spark is a product designed and manufactured by VivoKey Technologies, makers of the only cryptobionic implants capable of performing strong cryptographic functions in vivo. The Spark is ISO15693 and NFC Type 5 compliant, readable by all NFC reader devices including all NFC capable smartphones and USB readers that are capable of reading ISO15693 chips. The Spark is plug and play! There is nothing to program, and it is cryptographically secure. It works with the VivoKey app to configure scan behavior and expand your capabilities.

Unlike other implantable RFID and NFC transponders, when you install a Spark you are joining a community of VivoKey members and launching a new era for augmented humanity. The Spark is not a simple NFC implant, it is a secure link to the future. As the VivoKey platform grows, so too will the list of things you can do with your Spark. With the Spark, you aren’t just upgrading yourself, you are plugging into the only advanced cryptobionic platform in the world.

Kit Contents

  • 1 sterile injector assembly, pre-loaded with a VivoKey Spark tag
  • 2 single use ChloraPrep wipes
  • 1 sterile gauze pad for post-injection wound care
  • 1 sterile expandable-fabric adhesive bandage
  • 1 pair of non-sterile, non-latex procedure gloves

The Spark kit contains the Spark pre-loaded inside the injector, and all the sterile procedure materials required to perform installation. The Spark is encased in biologically safe 2x12mm cylindrical bioglass. The bioglass cylinder is laser sealed and the finished Spark is tested for function before loading into the injector assembly, and the whole injector assembly with the Spark inside is EO gas sterilized.

Important Things To Know

Spark Specifications
  • 13.56MHz ISO15693 & NFC Type 5 compliant RFID chipset
  • AES128 encryption function with 2 byte payload salt
  • Encased in 2.1mm by 12mm bioglass with non-toxic epoxy
  • Pre-tested and pre-loaded in sterile injection assembly
How/where is the Spark installed? Aftercare? What to expect?
hand nervesThe Spark is typically installed into the webbing between the metacarpal bones of the index finger and thumb, resting parallel to the index metacarpal. That placement within the hand is ideal due to a lack of major nerve bundles or blood vessels running through the area.

Piercer installing transponderAchieving a safe installation definitely requires a steady hand and experience performing aseptic procedures. Dangerous Things prefers customers locate one of our professional body piercing or body modification partners to complete the installation of this product. If no partners are available in your area, you should be able to follow this guide to finding a professional in your area who is willing to assist you.

You have questions! That’s understandable. The short answer is; it’s all good. If you’re looking for more specific answers, we have an extensive FAQ page that deals with many of the most commonly asked questions regarding installation small cylindrical transponders like the Spark.
Practical read range/performance expectation
magnetic-fieldPassive RFID and NFC tags are magnetically coupled devices that power themselves and communicate data over a shared magnetic field the reader generates. This means their effective read range and performance depends entirely on how well the antenna coils of both the tag and reader couple with each other. This typically means the shape, size, and orientation of both antennas must be complimentary.

Unfortunately, most reader devices, including mobile phones, typically have antennas designed with thin PCB traces made into blocky rectangular shapes that lay along a flat plane. These antenna designs are great for coupling with and reading large flat label tags, credit card style tags, and access cards which also share this antenna shape, but they have a hard time coupling to the very small cylindrical antenna coil inside our x-series tags. Most mobile phones and reader devices have a “sweet spot” or two that must be located and used each time to get consistent results. You should not expect your USB reader or mobile device to achieve the same read range with the Spark that you normally get with a label tag or card style tag. Here are some example videos detailing typical read performance and how to find that “sweet spot”.

The xLED can help!
The xLED is a signal diagnostic device that mimics the x-series antenna coil winding and shows you the best possible location and rotation/orientation for holding your x-series transponder up to any reader. This video explains how it works.

Tag testing process, return policy, lifetime warranty
Testing Process
Our x-series tags come pre-loaded inside injector systems with steel needles and cannot be read while inside the needle. Because of this, we perform a full test on every x-series tag before it is loaded into the injector assembly and sterilized. We have also conducted several tests on our x-series tags and cataloged those tests here.

Return Policy
All sales of this product are final and no returns will be accepted. We keep tight control over chain of custody on this through manufacture, sterilization, and shipment. We would not want to re-sell something that has been returned, and you probably wouldn’t want to buy one either… so before you purchase, do your research and be sure you know you’re getting the correct product, know it’s compatibility/performance/limitations/etc.

Lifetime Warranty
If you do purchase a VivoKey product and experience a failure, VivoKey offers a full lifetime warranty on all their products. You will need to return the product for testing and analysis, and if it is malfunctioning, we will ship you a replacement free of charge.
