Tesla founder Elon Musk is known for his eccentric ideas. Each of your projects always arouses passions. Much has been said about one of them during those hours. It’s about the monkey that can play video games – does that really exist? He revealed that one of his ‘startups’ has a monkey with wires connected to its brain, which allows it. To the entrepreneur, the main goal of this brain interface technology is much more valuable.
“We have a monkey with a wireless implant in its skull with tiny wires. And thanks to his mind, he can play video games, ”said the American billionaire. He did it in the clubhouse, a private social application for informal conversations. It is a popular platform with around 5 million users.
Elon Musk made another announcement to thousands of internet users in the clubhouse chat. He said he would be posting some videos of the wired monkeys soon, maybe in a month. “You can’t see where the implant is, and it’s a happy monkey. We have the best monkey facilities in the world. We want them to play mental pong with each other, “explained the businessman.
The founder of Tesla stated the goal of brain interface technology. He said it was more important than that and was intended for people with brain and spinal cord injuries. The idea is to help them with an implanted chip. “There are primitive versions of this device that have wires sticking out of your head. But it’s like a Fitbit in your skull with little wires going into your brain, “he clarified.
Musk also founded the aerospace and space transportation company SpaceX. He is known for his diverse interests, from artificial intelligence to underground highways.
The billionaire is currently the richest person in the world. The monkey who can play video games is just one of his projects. He sponsors other futuristic projects, including the San Francisco-based Neuralink Corporation. This neurotechnology company develops implantable brain-computer interfaces. Perhaps one day you will play poker in a monkey. Never underestimate it.
