WARNING:These kits definitely contain dangerous things. While the transponder devices contained within the Cyborg Transformation Kit have undergone several quality checks during manufacturing and have been put through a battery of tests with various private labs, they have not been tested or certified by any government regulatory agency for implantation or use inside the human body. Use of these devices is strictly at your own risk.
If you’re ready to upgrade your meat sack with next generation implant tech and immediately start building cyber-solutions, you need the cyborg transformation kit! Our xNT implant contains an NTAG216 chip that works with 13.56MHz NFC capable smartphones, certain ISO14443A commercial access control systems, certain door locks, and USB contactless ISO14443A readers. The T5577 RFID chip inside the xEM is a 125kHz emulator that can be programmed to behave like many different types of common 125kHz low frequency chips, including EM41xx, EM4200, HID 1326 ProxCard II, HID 1346 ProxCard III, Indala (and more!) access cards and keyfobs. Check out our video explaining how the T5577 works.
The Cyborg Transformation Kit contains the following products and materials, which are designed to enable you to bring the kit to a professional installation partner for installation.
1 sterile injector assembly, pre-loaded with xNT chip implant
1 sterile injector assembly, pre-loaded with xEM chip implant
1 sterile gauze pad for post-installation wound care
1 sterile expandable-fabric adhesive bandage
1 pair of non-sterile, non-latex procedure gloves
The following accessories also come with the Cyborg Transformation Kit. These accessories are “field detection” tools designed to assist you with identifying the type of readers you may encounter, but also the best location and orientation to present your NExT chip implant to any reader to get reliable performance.
Our X Field Detectors (xFD) will show you the best position and orientation to present your chip implants to any readers of the same frequency, while our RFID Diagnostic Card will tell you all about the frequency and duty cycles of random readers you encounter in the wild.

ADD ON: Access Kit
The Access Kit add-on for the NExT includes our two most popular access control devices. Watch the unboxing video to see what’s inside!
xEM Access Controller
The xEM Access Controller (xAC) is a stand-alone access control module that works with the 125kHz T5577 chip inside the NExT to allow (or deny) access to anything you wire it into!
Projects people have created with the xAC v2
Here are some projects on our community forum that utilize the xAC v2;
KBR1 Keyboard Wedge Reader
On the other side of the NExT, the 13.56MHz NTAG216 NFC chip inside the NExT can be used with the KBR1 keyboard wedge reader as a simple but effective computer login solution for Windows or Mac.
ADD ON: Proxmark3 Easy
The Proxmark3 Easy add-on for the NExT gives you the world renown and de-facto standard premiere RFID research and programming tool. *slaps box* This baby will read, crack, clone, and program just about any RFID or NFC tag you come across. It slices, it dices, it mixes, it fixes! Seriously, if you want to do anything with programming or cloning your NExT, this is the tool to use.
Pre-programmed in EM41xx mode with a 40 bit unique ID
Encased in 2.1mm by 12mm bioglass with non-toxic epoxy
Pre-tested and pre-loaded into sterile injection assembly
No “anti-migration” coating means easy removal / replacement
Testing process, return policy, warranty
Our x-series chips come pre-loaded inside injector systems with steel needles and cannot typically 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 chips and cataloged those tests here.
We offer a 30-day money back guarantee! Read all about it on our return policy page.
If you do purchase one of our products and experience a failure, we offer a pretty good warranty on all of our 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. Read all about it on our warranty policy page.
Practical read range/performance expectation
Passive RFID and NFC chips 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 labels 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 chips. Most mobile phones and reader devices have a “sweet spot” or two that must be located and used each time to get consistent results. Other devices, such as the Samsung Ezon electronic deadbolt lock, sometimes use wire wound coil antenna loops inside, which work much more reliably with small glass transponders like our x-series chips. You should not expect your USB reader or mobile device to achieve the same read range with our x-series chips 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 X Field Detector can help! The XFD is a 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. That’s why we include it in our deluxe bundle!
How/where are x-series chips installed? Aftercare? What to expect?
Our x-series transponders are typically installed into the webbing between the metacarpal bones of the index finger and thumb, resting parallel to the index metacarpal. The reason they are installed in the hand has to do with the extremely short read range of x-series chips and the typical use case being some form of access control where the tag must be presented to a fixed reader of some kind. The suggested placement within the hand was chosen due to the lack of major nerve bundles or blood vessels running through that area.
Achieving a safe installation definitely requires a steady hand and experience performing aseptic procedures. Dangerous Things prefers our 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. For aftercare information and what to expect, please read our X-Series FAQ page.
Can I get an MRI? What about airport security? Playing sports? etc.
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 of our x-series transponders.
