Neuralink video shows monkey playing game with thoughts

Neuralink released footage today appearing to show a monkey playing a video game after getting brain-chip implants, Reuters reports. The three-minute video by Neuralink, which Elon Musk co-founded in 2016,  shows Pager, a male macaque with chips embedded on each side of its brain, playing Mind Pong. He reportedly controls the paddle by thinking about moving his hand up or down. “First @Neuralink product will enable someone with paralysis to use a smartphone with their mind faster than someone using thumbs,” Musk tweeted on Thursday. “Later versions will be able to shunt signals from Neuralinks in brain to Neuralinks in body motor/sensory neuron clusters, thus enabling, for example, paraplegics to walk again. The device is implanted flush with skull & charges wirelessly, so you look & feel totally normal.”
