The Gist

Elon Musk answered a series of questions via Twitter over the weekend revealing details about his neurotechnology side project, Neuralink.

The List

  • Neuralink is a company which seeks to implant computer chips directly into the surface of the brain and stimulate it using mild electric currents.
  • According to Musk, this technology will be able to improve memory, restore poor eyesight and hearing, and even allow you to stream music directly to your brain.
  • Likened to LASIK eye surgery, Musk claims that Neuralink products could be ready for the public within a years time.
  • Critics are taking these claims with a grain of salt, as Musk has previously made similarly outlandish statements in the past that never came true. 
  • Though Musk is widely recognized as the founder and CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, he has multiple side projects such as Neuralink and the Boring Company.
