Neuralink, a neuroscience startup owned by Tesla CEO Elon Musk, has implanted a chip into the human brain for the first time, Musk announced on the 29th (local time).



On this day, Musk said on his social media



“Neuralink’s first product is Telepathy,” he said. “You can control almost any device, including your cell phone or computer, with just your thoughts.”



He added, "The initial users will be people who cannot use their limbs. Imagine Stephen Hawking being able to communicate faster than a fast typing typist or auctioneer. That's the goal." Yes.



Stephen Hawking, a world-renowned physicist, suffered from Lou Gehrig's disease, which causes muscle atrophy, from the age of 21 and spent his entire life confined to a wheelchair.



Neuralink's first transplant came eight months after it was approved for clinical trials by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in May of last year.



Neuralink began recruiting participants for clinical trials to implant a computer chip into the human brain in September last year.



Musk has aimed to implant computer chips into the human brain, allowing the brain to communicate directly with computers.



He said that he aims to make this possible for people who have lost their sight or cannot move their muscles, and emphasized, "Even people who were born blind and have never used their eyes will be able to have sight."
