Elon Musk Says Neuralink Has Monkeys Playing Video Games With Their Mind

During an appearance earlier this week on the application Clubhouse, the co-founder of Neuralink, Elon Musk, said that the implementation of the brain-computer interface has implanted a device in a monkey that allows him to play video games with his mind.

Mono. Pong mental.

“We have a monkey with a wireless implant in his skull that can play video games with his mind,” Musk said during the appearance, according to the Bloomberg transcript.

This statement provides a new sense of momentum for Neuralink, which has been silent since revealed experimental devices that he had implanted in pigs late last summer.

As he did at the pig event, Musk emphasized the welfare of the animal.

“You can’t see where the implant is and he’s a happy monkey,” he said during the event. “We have the best monkey facilities in the world. We want them to play Pong (mentally) between them”.

Human version

It’s still unclear how long it will be until the device is advanced and safe enough for human users, and of course that’s assuming it succeeds.

The CEO’s comments on a human version of Neuralink during the event they were difficult to analyze and open to interpretation.

“There are primitive versions of this device with wires coming out of your head, but it’s like a Fitbit in your skull with little wires going into your brain,” he said at Bloomberg.
