Breaking news! Elon Musk has gone MAD SCIENTIST CRAZY! plans to have human trials for his Neuralink matrix in 6 months!

Elon Musk said on Wednesday he expects a wireless brain chip developed by his company Neuralink to begin human clinical trials in six months, after the company missed earlier timelines set by him.

The company is developing brain chip interfaces that it says could enable disabled patients to move and communicate again, with Musk adding on Wednesday that it will also target restoring vision.



Based in the San Francisco Bay Area and Austin, Texas, Neuralink has in recent years been conducting tests on animals as it seeks approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to begin clinical trials in people.



“We want to be extremely careful and certain that it will work well before putting a device into a human,” Musk said during a much-awaited public update on the device.

Speaking to a crowd of select invitees in a presentation at Neuralink headquarters that lasted nearly three hours, Musk emphasized the speed at which the company is developing its device.



The first two human applications targeted by the Neuralink device will be in restoring vision and enabling movement of muscles in people who cannot do so, Musk said. “Even if someone has never had vision, ever, like they were born blind, we believe we can still restore vision,” he said.


Neuralink’s last public presentation, more than a year ago, involved a monkey with a brain chip that played a computer game by thinking alone.

He seems like he isn't, he often has trouble picking up social cues and is definitively intelligent. Seems to want to be popular but also seems to troll the public.

Mark my words- Elon Musk is going to turn out to be this generation’s Howard Hughes. All these big promises and no delivery. He will probably lose all his money too most of it is luck. He’s a con man

That tech could let paralyzed folk have a more independent, self-sufficient life, though.
