We all got inspired from Elon Musk when he accomplished his impossible dreams but now he wants to drill hole in your skill and link your brain with smartphone apps. This new technology will allow you to control your smartphones with just your thoughts. Neuralink is one of the Musk's companies, working on neural technology for over two years, and just recently it gave its first public real peek at what this startup has been working since its launch. The startup has created a neurosurgical robot which can embed the threads similar to human hair into the brain.
So far, these threads have been tested on animals but they are hopeful to test these on humans by the end of next year. To conduct these tests on humans he would need approval from the U.S food and drug administration first. If he got the approval, he may be able to pitch a technology that can read the mind of a patient of a paralysis and transmit that data to a machine. This would open new opportunities for the disable persons. According to a Reeve foundation, there are 5.4 million people living in the US with this condition and if this technology works, it could significantly improve the quality of life of millions of people.
Neuralink is arguably one of the foremost startups dedicated to biohacking, the quest to augment human beings' physical and cognitive performance, often by performing radical experiments on ourselves. It's now facing a problem common to many biohackers: The medical system, they complain, holds back progress. On July 16, Elon Musk had a live-stream about the technology. The Must said, the event wasn't about showing off. The main reason for doing this presentation is recruiting. He wants to hire more people for the Neuralink's open positions. The company currently has 90 employees and has $158 million in funding.
