Elon Musk has announced that a Nerolink. This nurolink is a brain chip implant that is said to help paraplegics. This chip has electrode arrays of around 1,000 superthin, flexible conductors that a surgical robot would thread into the cerebral cortex. Elon would also like to have an app that can translate signals and generate text or move a cursor.

 

“It is a good thing to help paraplegics be able to as independent as they can. But, they don’t know what it is doing to there brain and I believe to change the guide wires in the brain would be very dangerous and have a high risk for infection. They are not registered with the FDA, which is required for a clinical trial.”
