The founder of Tesla and SpaceX, Ilon Musk, spoke about the success of another of his startups, Neuralink, which made a breakthrough in science.
The American neurotechnology company is engaged in the development and production of chips that can be implanted into the brains of living creatures. The scientists’ first test subject was a monkey. According to Musk, the experiment was a success.
We have a monkey with an implant in its skull with tiny wires. It can play video games with its mind,” the entrepreneur told listeners on the Clubhouse app.
Musk reassured fans about the subject’s well-being. Everything is fine with the monkey, he is happy and lives under the constant supervision of specialists in the laboratory Neuralink. In the near future, he promised to show it to people and demonstrate the ability to play video games, writes Bloomberg.
