(TheConservativeTimes.org) – Elon Musk recently added Neuralink to his many technology ideas, and we have been hearing a lot about the Neuralink brain chip since he recently put it into the first human brain.
Elon Musk just announced not long ago that his Neuralink brain chip has been implanted into a human brain and the human is recovering fine. Essentially, the Neuralink is a brain chip that uses a BCI, a device that is able to “record, stimulate, or modulate the electrical activity of neurons in the brain.” This would allow users to control their electronic devices using just their thoughts and their brain.
The Neuralink is a small microchip that will replace a small piece of the human skull and sit right underneath the skin. It will release 64 needle probes that will stick into the brain and allow for over 1,000 channels of two-way communication between the brain and the microchip. It also will be able to wirelessly charge.
This allows the human to communicate with technological devices like iPhones and computers using just their brain.
Neuralink is in the middle of clinical trials and they are open to those who have quadriplegia due to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or a spinal cord injury. Elon Musk has also said that the first Neuralink product will be called Telepathy and will mostly be used by people who have lost their limbs. If you meet the requirements, you can see if you are eligible to get the Neuralink implant.
According to Elon Musk, the patient that he implanted the chip into has been recovering fine and the chip is reacting, which means that it can capture the electrical impulses. In the future, Neuralink can make a huge impact on those who are living with ALS, paralysis, or other conditions that limit movement. Musk also says that he envisions a future where Neuralink will also be beneficial for healthy people and can enhance their cognitive functions.
