Elon Musk is on the way to insert Bluetooth-enabled implants into your brain, which will enable telepathy and can repair motor function in people with injuries.
The CEO of Tesla and SpaceX said his Neuralink devices will consist of a tiny chip connected to 1,000 wires measuring one-tenth the width of a human hair.
The chip features a USB-C port, and connects via Bluetooth to a small computer device worn over the ear and to a smartphone, Musk said.
Neuralink, a startup founded by Musk 2years back, says the devices can be used by stroke victims, paralyzed, cancer patients, by those seeking a memory boost or others with congenital defects.
The company says that up to 10 chips can be placed in a person's brain. The chips will connect to a mobile app that the user can control.
The devices will be installed by a robot built by the company and will be operated by a surgeon. The robot will drill 2 millimeter holes in a person's skull. The chip part of the device will plug the hole in the patient's skull.
"The interface to the chip is wireless, so you have no wires poking out of your head. That's very important,".
Trials could start before the end of 2020.
The flip side to this is that critics aren't so sure customers should trust tech companies with data ported directly from the brain.
"Gathering data from raw brain activity could put people in great risk, and could be used to influence, manipulate and exploit them,".
