As Elon described it
It’s kind of like a Fitbit in your skull with tiny wires.
This is how it looks
Neuralink Updates Summer 2020
Elon Musk has showed a pig called Gertrude with a coin-sized computer chip in her brain to demonstrate recent progress in Neuralink and ambitious plans to create a working brain-to-machine interface.
Gertrude was a happy pig with a 2-months old chip from Neuralink.
Elon Musk has shown also a bunch of other pigs like:
- Dorothee with a chip removed, showing that you can always resign (or go for an upgrade).
- a pig with two chips.
All in all, the presentation was a huge success and you can watch it here.
