Elon Musk Announced: Thought-powered Computer Control

The first human patient to receive a brain chip implant from Neuralink has fully recovered and is able to control a computer mouse using his thoughts, Elon Musk said in a new statement.

Elon Musk announced that the first person implanted with the Neuralink brain chip has fully recovered. The patient has not only recovered, but can also control a computer mouse with the power of thought.

At the Spaces event on the social media platform, Musk said, “Progress is good and the patient seems to have fully recovered with neural effects we are aware of. The patient can move the computer mouse on the screen just by thinking.”

Musk said Neuralink is now trying to get as many “mouse clicks” from the patient as possible.

The company successfully implanted the chip in its first human patient last month after receiving approval to participate in human trials in September.

First Target Computer Cursor And Keyboard Control

Neuralink said it used a robot to surgically implant the chip in a region of the brain that controls the ability to move, adding that the first goal is to enable people to control a computer cursor or keyboard using their thoughts.

Musk has big ambitions for Neuralink and says the chips could be used to treat conditions such as obesity, autism, depression and schizophrenia.

Neuralink, which was valued at nearly $5 billion last year, has repeatedly faced calls for scrutiny over its safety protocols.

Reuters reported last month that the company had been fined for violating US Department of Transportation rules on the transportation of hazardous materials.
