Elon Musk unveils his Neuralink implant – which could allow people to control computers with their minds

 

 

 

Elon Musk took to the stage Friday to show the world his Neuralink brain chip progress – following a more than 30 minute delay that left some 100,000 people  waiting on the edge of their seats.

Musk said last month in a tweet that on August 28, Neuralink ‘will show neurons firing in real-time’ – and the CEO kept his promise.

The three little pig’s demo, as he called it, showed an animal named Gertrude with the brain implant. While she snuffed around in a pen, viewers saw her brain activity on a large screen.

The livestream also gave the first look of the redesigned chip, which is the size of a large coin attached to wires that replace a piece of skull when connected to the brain.

‘It’s like a Fitbit in your skull, Musk said during the event.

‘It goes flush on your skull. I could have a Link right now and you wouldn’t know. Maybe I do.’

Although the public may have hoped to see a person use the powers of the chip, the event suggests Neuralink is getting closer to Musk’s vision of allowing humans to control computers and smartphones with their mind.

Neuralink’s system is comprised of a computer chip attached to tiny flexible threads that are stitched into the brain by a ‘sewing-machine-like’ robot.

The device pick ups signals in the brain, which are then translated into motor controls.
