The introduction of chips into the human brain is one of thethe main goals of Elon Musk's company Neuralink, which has outlined testing of the technology at the end of 2020. The main task of the electronics being introduced into the human brain will be the restoration of vision, hearing and physical activity. However, during the discussion of the future technology, a more original use of the embedded chips was revealed. When discussing chipping on Twitter, Elon Musk did not rule out the possibility of using the chips as a multimedia center for listening to music.
On the unusual use of Neuralink technologyit became known from the dialogue between Musk and one of the subscribers, who asked about the possibility of listening to music through the chip. According to the head of the company, the chip transmits sound by directly stimulating neurons, bypassing the organs of hearing, which theoretically will allow music to be transmitted directly to the patient's brain. Musk's initiative to hire specialists developing wearable electronic devices can indirectly confirm the broader capabilities of implanted chips.
The process of implantation of electronic implants will beperformed by medical robots, which, according to the developers, makes the operation completely safe. The use of implantable chips will improve the quality of life of patients suffering from incurable diseases, including epilepsy and Parkinson's, and will help reanimate motor functions after serious spinal injuries.
