|Elon Musk's Mysterious Neuralink Chip Could Make You Hear Things That Were Impossible to Hear Before|
1 August 2020, 1:34 am EDT By Nhx T. Tech Times
The mysterious Neuralink chip was previously in the headlines when the founder of the company, Elon Musk, said that the chip will be able to stream music straight into the wearer's brain--and now, the tech CEO has revealed more details about it.
Hear Beyond Frequencies and Amplitudes
In a report by Independent, Musk revealed that the chip will allow the wearer to hear things that they weren't able to hear before as it was out of a human's hearing range, meaning the Neuralink chip can be used to "extend range of hearing beyond normal frequencies and amplitudes."
Additionally, and perhaps even more interesting and exciting, is that the mysterious chip will apparently be able to help restore movement for people with a fully severed spinal cord.
If that proves to be true, it could help millions of people who have had spinal injuries and were unable to move since then, providing the best and perhaps the only cure available on the market.
How will the Neuralink Chip Work?
But what is this Neuralink chip, exactly?
Elon Musk founded the company back in 2016, but until now, the CEO has only made one major presentation about how the technology they are developing will work.
Ultimately, the company's goal is to create a direct link between the brain and a computer.
They will be able to do this by using a "sewing machine-like" device that will "sew" threads to the implanted brain chip, which would then connect to a single USB-C cable that enables "full-bandwidth data streaming" to the brain.
This is based on the research paper that the company's scientists have published last year.
Furthermore, the company's CEO plans to enhance the chip's capabilities and allow mankind to compete with artificial intelligence.
Nevertheless, their first iterations of the Neuralink chip is to help people with neurological issues and brain disorders like Parkinson's and depression and anxiety.
As of now, Musk has only been sharing snippets of the Neuralink chip's prowess through a series of tweet, but he is planning on holding an event on August 28 that will hopefully talk more about the mysterious chip and will finally provide the public with more information on its features and the technology behind it.
