A brain computer interface

Elon Musk's company Neuralink has announced groundbreaking progress on its Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) technology. The company's brain implants, connected via Bluetooth to an external controller, are designed to first treat patients with cervical fractures and neurological disorders, allowing them to restore somewhat normal function. Long-term, they will be made available to the general population for enhanced capability, or to enable AI enhancement of our brains. A breakthrough enabling Neuralink's technology is the development of flexible electrode threads with a diameter measuring one-tenth the width of a human hair. These can be inserted into the uppermost levels of the human cortex. 1,024 of these threads attach to a single small Neuralink chip that is embedded into the skull, just below your scalp. https://www.neuralink.com/
