Anastasia Synn is world-record ‘human cyborg’ with 52 implants



She’s got a magnetic personality — literally. 

Anastasia Synn, 48, from Tehachapi, California, now holds the Guinness World Record for the woman with the most technological implants in her body.

The self-made cyborg and performer has 52 implants — including the largest magnet ever to be implanted inside a person, Guinness says.

She also boasts a magnetic implant in the tragus of her ear that emits sound. She can hear inside her head with a copper wire or a Bluetooth receiver — and has a host of other special abilities.

“Finding someone’s lost earring backing has also come in very handy throughout the years,” she told Guinness of her magnetic powers.

She can open locks, as well as turn on computers, because about half her implants are microchips.

Initially she liked the idea of being able to program implanted chips with her phone, crediting her daughter with the inspiration.

“My daughter originally asked if she could get a microchip implant to unlock her computer like a gamer girl that she saw online, and I said, ‘No, you better let me do it first so I can make sure it’s safe,’” she said. 

The Post reached out to Synn for comment.

Synn’s implants in her left hand give her kind of a sixth sense. 

“I can tell you if your microwave is leaking too much radiation. My hand vibrates,” she explained.

She can also determine if a power box is getting enough power and feel live wires behind a wall.

Her implants can even make phone calls.

“The one in my left wrist calls my daughter’s phone and the one in my right wrist calls my husband’s phone,” she noted. 

She honors her late husband with a microchip over her heart.

“The chip over my heart when scanned will play our wedding,” Synn told Guinness.

Synn is the widow of John Edward Szeles, also known as the “Freddy Krueger of comedy.”

The stand-up comic and magician died at his Las Vegas home in February 2022 after a long battle with heart disease. He was 63.

“The last thing I said to him was, ‘I love you, honey, I’ll be with you when you get up from your nap,’” Synn told the Las Vegas Review-Journal at the time.

Synn’s body modifications were performed by an underground “do it yourself” surgeon as well as a nurse — with either a hypodermic needle and a plunger or a scalpel, Guinness reports.

“I put quite a few in myself, and I had a friend help me with ones I couldn’t do on my own,” she said. 

Putting implants in your body comes with risks, she warned.

“If I find that I have some kind of illness that requires regular MRIs, I would definitely have all of my implants pulled out,” she said. 

And some implants are made with experimental coatings — potentially exposing Synn to toxins.

She said at one point, she had her teeth removed to get cyborg dentures she could put in and pull out as she pleased, but her dentist couldn’t quite figure out what she wanted.

“I was left without teeth for six months, causing my lower face shape to change and a subsequent slew of problems,” said Synn. “I’ve given up on my desire to make cyborg dentures.”

She also unsuccessfully attempted to rebuild a computer inside her leg — but she would need a lithium battery, which is deadly and shouldn’t be implanted in the body.

“I had a computer in my leg at one point that people could log into and chat on an open chat interface in it. It overheated though and broke and I had to remove it,” she said. 

Synn pays close attention to her implants to make sure they aren’t breaking because if they are, they need to be removed and replaced. 

“The other day I smashed my thumb in the doorway, and I was worried I smashed one of the glass implants, but it survived,” she recalled. 

“I also had magnets in my memorial implant of ashes for my husband and they came loose, so my arm was actually rattling, and I had to have it replaced.”

Synn learned about her world record on the set of Guinness’ Italian TV show, “Lo Show dei Record.” She achieved the feat in February.

She joked that she may be able to invent a new record — for the most removal surgeries in one day.
