Elon Musk is the CEO of both Tesla and SpaceX. The man is a modern-day Einstein, there is no denying that! From building a completely battery-powered car to launching rockets and making space travel a reality for all, he has been busy!
But a man with a mind like that means there is always something new to show the world. And show us he did!
Elon Musk recently unveiled a brain chip implant from his company Neuralink, that lets us control technology with our minds! That’s not a joke, the implant lets people who are paralyzed operate tech like robotic limbs and smartphones by using nothing but their thoughts. The implant could also be used to fight conditions like memory loss and even blindness.
A demonstration was conducted on a pig that involved displaying real-time neural signals from the animal through the implanted chip. To quote Elon Musk the coin-sized brain implant is like a “fit bit in your skull.” However, while the chip worked inside of an animal it’s not quite ready for human use… yet.
For now, they continue development and work with the FDA to make it as safe as possible. So all we can do at the moment is wait and see what happens. The SciFi future is looking like its right around the corner.
What’s next? Flying cars? If so one thing is for sure, Elon Musk would be the man to figure out how it works!
