Elon Musk will present Neuralink this friday, the presentation will be about one of the most interesting technological innovation. Neuralink will hold a live event to publicize their work.
Elon Musk is known for his autonomous Tesla cars and SpaceX space travel, but this American tycoon’s list of companies doesn’t end there. One of the companies whose work looks like something out of a science fiction movie is Neuralink.
This company describes its main objective as the creation of a brain-computer interface. Mixing technology with the biology of the human brain to, in principle, help people with severe brain injuries. This Friday could be the first time we see your employees’ work going.
Elon Musk has announced through social networks a live event online for this Friday, August 28 at 3pm PT.
- Samsung Galaxy M51 specifications leaked
- Trump approves blood plasma treatment for COVID-19
- Bill Gates believes that COVID-19 will end by the end of 2022
After all, humans have been using devices to integrate into the human body such as pacemakers for decades. This would be a radical leap in comparison, but one that could help many people. In the Neuralink presentation video we can see a robot similar to a sewing machine that places electrodes inside the brain, which are connected to a device in the ear. The company assures that its main objective is to help people with amputations or who need to restore the ability to read, speak and hear due to a neuronal problem.

News point to a more striking objective, indicating that the brain chip emits Bluetooth signals with which the subject would be able to control a machine or monitor his brain activity. Musk has even claimed that this technology would replace headphones to make calls or listen to music.
The company has not confirmed that it has already been tested in humans, but it has in primates. Elon Musk himself has proudly announced how one of the monkeys Neuralink works with has already been able to control a computer with his brain.
We will wait until Friday to learn in more detail the level of evolution of the project that may be the beginning of a society of cyborgs who control their mobiles with their thoughts, although surely the advances presented are much more concrete than this novel world. For those interested, the presentation is most likely to be broadcast live on the Neuralink YouTube channel.
