(ORDO NEWS) — Elon Musk said that the first human trials of the Neuralink chip developed by his company may begin this year.
The company has recently been developing a wireless chip with which people can use their minds to control a certain computer.
The first working prototype was tested on a pig named Gertrude. After the tests on the monkey are carried out, it is planned to start installing this chip in humans.
It is worth noting that many people are already agreeing to take part in clinical trials to solve their health problems.
Elon Musk also added that his company is doing everything possible to make the chip as safe as possible for people.
Some time ago, the head of the company claimed that he was able to insert a wireless chip into the skull of an experimental monkey so that it could play modern video games.
But such capabilities of the chip are just a minor addition to the main goal. Initially, it was developed in order to eliminate injuries of the spinal cord and brain in people affected by accidents or some serious illness.
