Although SpaceX’s starship prototype test has failed repeatedly recently, it did not hinder Musk’s series of dreams. Recently, he released the latest test video of the brain-computer interface, showing the latest progress of the technology.
According to the video, a 9-year-old macaque named “Pager” used the built-in Neuralink device to manipulate video games with mind. The researchers used a metal habit filled with delicious banana milkshakes to inspire it to play Test, Pug can make full use of its brain activity to learn to control a computer.
Initially, the personnel connected the joystick to this computer to familiarize Pug with the entire operation process. Then they disconnected the joystick. Pug still seemed to be controlling the joystick with his hands, but he was already using it at this time. The device implanted in the brain controls the operation of the “ping pong ball” through the mind.
Although this experiment is only a game process for Pug, it is of great significance to the “brain-computer interface” technology and even the entire human technology.
Musk represented in the social platform , Neuralink first product will enable paralyzed people to use the idea of playing phone, but faster than a man’s thumb. However, this future seems far away.
Musk believes that the potential of Neuralink is almost limitless. For example, it can use telepathy to summon a Tesla in autonomous driving, or establish a data connection between humans and machines, or even learn immediately as in The Matrix. A language or martial arts.
