While I missed last weeks press event with Musk, I’m concerned that he’s really listening to too much Pink Floyd. He demonstrated implants in a pig. Yes, a combination of dystopic brain implants, placed into a pig before he brainwashes… I mean puts brain implants in people. He seems excited for this… “it’s like a Fitbit in your skull with tiny wires”. Nope. Brain connectivity has been underway for ages, but it doesn’t make this any less creepy. “We don’t need no thought control…”
The device has been implanted in pigs, where it can read neural activity, but clinical trials in humans have yet to occur.
