‘The terrifying ‘Neuralink’ machine that Elon Musk will use to turn humans into cyborgs by putting a chip in their BRAIN gets an ‘awesome’ upgrade, the tech billionaire claims’
• Neuralink is working on an ‘awesome’ device to be unveiled this year, Musk says
• His company revealed an implant that connects brains to computers last year
• It will start trials on human brains sometime this year in a bid to compete with AI
” Elon Musk has improved his controversial Neuralink technology that he hopes will allow people to hook themselves up to a computer and become cyborgs.
Musk’s company Neuralink is building tiny and flexible ‘threads’ which are ten times thinner than a human hair and can be inserted directly into the brain.
Musk, the billionaire boss of Neuralink, SpaceX and Tesla, took to his usual stomping ground of Twitter to parade his latest development.
He called the improvements to Neuralink and the scary robot that will insert the device into human brains ‘truly transformational’ and ‘awesome’ in several tweets.
The tiny brain implants, called brain-machine interfaces (BMIs), connects the human brain to external devices and enables them to control computers.
The company say these ‘high bandwidth, high precision neural interfaces’, dubbed N1, could be implanted in humans within the next 12 months.”
