Elon Musk Reveals First Human to Have Neuralink Microchip Implanted in Brain

Elon Musk has revealed the first human patient to have a Neuralink microchip implanted into their brain.

The billionaire Tesla and SpaceX CEO announced on Monday that his company had successfully attached the device inside the unnamed person’s brain on Sunday.

Musk’s new product, called ‘Telepathy,’ will reportedly allow those with disabilities to ‘communicate faster than an auctioneer.’

According to Musk, Neuralink will ‘enable control of your phone or computer, and through them almost any device, just by thinking.”

The news comes less than a year after Neuralink was given clearance by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to operate on humans.

Musk wrote on X:

“The first human received an implant from @Neuralink yesterday and is recovering well. Initial results show promising neuron spike detection.”

He added that the device “enables control of your phone or computer and through them almost any device, just by thinking.”

“Initial users will be those who have lost the use of their limbs. Imagine if Stephen Hawking could communicate faster than a speed typist or auctioneer. That is the goal,” he said.

The company said it aims to implant microchips into the brains of paralyzed people, allowing them to move their bodies with ‘thought.’

The ‘neural lace’ technology implants small brain electrodes that may one day upload and download thoughts.

The Daily Mail reported:

The technology is initially planned to be used to help people suffering from severe degenerative brain disorders such as ALS, but it could have wider uses in years to come.

Neuralink announced in September that it would soon commence a trial in humans to evaluate the safety of its implant.

Details of the patient were not given, but Ashlee Vance, who wrote a 2015 biography, ‘Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future,’ wrote in a Bloomberg report that the ideal candidate for Neuralink’s first human trial was ‘an adult under age 40 whose four limbs are paralyzed’.

Vance explained that it would take a ‘couple of hours’ for a surgeon to perform a craniectomy and a further 25 minutes for the chip to be inserted by a robot into the area of the brain that controls the hands, wrists, and forearms.

Vance explained that it would take a ‘couple of hours’ for a surgeon to perform a craniectomy and a further 25 minutes for the chip to be inserted by a robot into the area of the brain that controls the hands, wrists, and forearms.

“The goal is to show that the device can safely collect useful data from that part of the patient’s brain, a key step in Neuralink’s efforts to convert a person’s thoughts into a range of commands a computer can understand,” Vance added.

According to Vance, the implant would relay this information to a nearby computer.

The company said a robot developed by the company would surgically place the implants ‘ultra-fine’ threads, which help transmit signals in human brains.

Last November, we reported that thousands of people were lining up to have the computer chip implanted in their brains.

The Daily Fetched reported:

Thousands of people are eager to participate in the FDA-approved human trials of the brain-computer interface chip developed by Elon Musk’s Neuralink.

The computer chip will be installed in participants’ brains, and we can only hope the results will be better than Musk’s test monkeys, which suffered a grim fate.

According to recent reports, thousands have lined up to be part of the trials involving the implantation of Musk’s Neuralink brain chip, which the Tesla CEO calls a “Fitbit in your skull.”

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
