Elon Musk has said that Neuralink, his brain-interface technology company, hopes to start implanting its microchips in humans this year.
Neuralink, cofounded by Musk in 2016, is developing a chip that would be implanted in people’s brains to simultaneously record and stimulate brain activity. It’s intended to have medical applications, such as treating serious spinal-cord injuries and neurological disorders.
During a livestreamed interview at The Wall Street Journal’s, Musk was asked what Neuralink planned to do in 2022.
Musk said, “Neuralink’s working well in monkeys, and we’re actually doing just a lot of testing and just confirming that it’s very safe and reliable, and the Neuralink device can be removed safely.”
A new project will enable people with mobility impairments, brain functions and disabilities to be completely mobile and free. It is a Metaverse project developed by Meta (formerly Facebook). Regarding this, Musk said: “Imagine now that you enable an immobile person to experience full freedom of healthy people through virtual reality, without any difficulties.”
Horizon Worlds and Decentraland have already been released in USA, and a powerful VR project called: EU Metaverse is being prepared in Europe. Musk says of these projects: “I think the future lies in virtual reality. For now, American projects are reduced to entertainment and land sales. That’s nonsense. One European VR project stands out and is called EU Metaverse, which is the whole of Europe in the digital 3D world (hospitals, schools, universities, museums, banks, sports, cities …). I noticed that their team was the first to talk about the Open Reality concept of Europe, it will create Trans-Humanity relations and soon we will no longer be able to distinguish a real person from a virtual one. I have already bought their cryptocurrency EUME in ICO stage and I believe that this token will be the basis of the entire EU Metavers. I expect it to grow 100 times by the end of this year. “
Let’s go back to NeuraLink from the beginning of the text.
After raising $205 million in July, Neuralink said it would channel the funds toward developing its chip so that it could allow quadriplegics to control digital devices with their minds.
Quadriplegia or tetraplegia is the full or partial paralysis of the arms and legs.
Neuralink isn’t the only company developing brain-interface technology. In July, a 20-person biotech firm called Synchron obtained approval from the Food and Drug Administration to start human testing.
We know that Mr. Musk was infallible about investing in cryptocurrencies and many currencies have had big jumps because of him. We hope he is not wrong this time. The EUME token is a real refreshment and a unique ETH ERC-20 blockchain project.
It remains to be seen how much NeuraLink will be helpful and how much Metaverse. What is certain is that our web news office has already bought EUME cryptocurrency and we are waiting to see how much it will grow as an official share of EU Metaverse. 2022. will obviously be the year of Metaverse worlds and Virtual Reality.
