Elon Musk, popularly known as the CEO for SpaceX and Tesla, is launching his brand new crazy next-level tech, the Neuralink brain-chips!
Elon Musk, the famous Tesla and SpaceX CEO has finally set a date to reveal the much-awaited brain-machine interface company he created called Neuralink.
The announcement is said to take place this week and that could even include the next human trials for this technology!
What Elon Musk is giving away on August 28
The Neuralink brain-machine interface company brain-chips have already proven successful on both mice and also apes.
While this entire agenda is still being speculative, a first-ever live demonstration of this new neuron firing activity has finally been confirmed.
According to Elon Musk’s tweet, they will be showing the neurons firing in-realtime this coming August 28. He also said “the matrix in the matrix”.
There are even claims by the Tesla and SpaceX CEO that the upcoming Neuralink chip will even allow users to be able to hear different sounds that are impossible to pick up with human ears.
Elon Musk even confirmed that people will be able to listen to music directly from their chips with the new Neuralink!
He was asked whether listening to music from the chips as possible by a random Twitter user and to this, he simply replied yes.
The chip is also said to be able to control certain hormone levels, which would then have the potential to aid people struggling with anxiety and other things.
The Neuralink brain-chip is also designed to help paralyzed people control certain devices and also empowering people with certain brain disorders.
How do these Neuralink brain-machine interface chips work?
Last year, Elon Musk’s Neuralink actually unveiled tiny brain “threads” in a certain chip which is made to last for a while.
The chip was also usable at the users’ home and already has the potential to replace certain cumbersome devices that are currently being used as certain brain-machine interfaces.
Back in February of this current year, Elon Musk gave an announcement that he will be bringing an “awesome” update by Neuralink sometime soon. Now, the update has come!
Elon Musk has been optimistic about having Neuralink on humans as early as this year and he seems really proud on Twitter with the progress!
The technology works with a certain module that simply sits outside of your head, located behind the ear, and easily receives certain information from other “threads” that are embedded in the brain.
The technology can simply be controlled by a certain iPhone app. The chip is called the N1 sensor and it comes with a simple USB port with a maximum capacity of up to 3,072 electrodes per array that are distributed across all 96 “threads”.
Each thread is just a little smaller and thinner than the tiniest human hair!
The future of the brain-machine interface chip
The chip will eventually become wireless in the upcoming future and can later on read, transmit a huge volume of data, and amplify signals from the brain much faster than its current capacity.
Aside from Neuralink, Elon Musk is also planning to venture into the News industry amidst the whole Covid-19 pandemic.
SpaceX, Tesla, Neuralink, Boring company, and many more! What else can Elon Musk come up with?
