Elon Musk’s brain company, Neuralinks, has announced that brain implants for humans are almost ready. The company also announced that the implants are ready for testing on humans.
Neuralinks is a company manufacturing a brain implant that will connect the human brain directly to computers.
Recently, the company has come under criticism for using animals to test run the new product.
But the company has stated some of the benefits the world would benefit from Musk’s latest passion project.
One of the benefits is that Neuralink’s brain implants will ‘save’ memories like photos.
According to Musk, the project was particularly designed to help paraplegics walk again.
He said the brain-computer interface (BCI) will make it possible for humans to carry out actions through thought alone.
Other benefits of the implant include: Neuralink’s brain implant will save humans from Artificial Intelligence annihilation, restore mobility for people with spinal cord injuries, treat neurological conditions like Parkinson’s disease.
Also, scientists hope to insert the chip in less than an hour without general anaesthesia.
