Would you implant a chip in the brain made by Elon Musk? The question may seem like a complete imbecility . However, there are people who really think about it. Technology has aspects that sometimes border on science fiction. One of the best examples in this regard is Neuralink. About which we already wrote this article.

Neuralink is a company company founded by Elon Musk in 2016 that works in the field of development of chips for neurotechnology trying to connect the human brain and a computer .

First of all, it is necessary to remember that every R&D project is simply a project -an idea- until it materializes in something concrete. If, in addition, it is an Elon Musk project, it must be taken even more with tweezers due to its eccentric behaviors (to put it mildly) since, in the specific case of Neuralink, it is an invention inspired by characters from the The Culture science fiction book series.

The sum of elements invites you to read Elon Musk's words with great caution. Especially, because some of the features on Neuralink that he has revealed are answers to questions from other users on Twitter (something that the South African usually does about other companies like Tesla or SpaceX) and we do not know if it is really real aspects that the company He had planned and planned or if it is an occurrence of the moment , such as when he joked with the stock price in Tesla, like the day he gave him for smoking a joint in an interview or like the flying robotaxis that he said they would be furrowing the skies this year.

The company Neuralink arose with the aim of creating technological solutions that help patients with disabilities caused by neurological disorders, serious brain damage, cancer, thrombi or congenital injuries.

The discovery of Neuralink's recreational apps has come about following a Twitter message that Elon Musk has posted. In it, where you encourage qualified professionals to join your team.

"If you have solved difficult problems with phones or wearables (sealing, signal processing, induction charging, battery management, etc.), consider working at engineering@neuralink.com," says the businessman in a tweet.

"This will resolve many brain and spine injuries and is essential for symbiosis with artificial intelligence," he added.

Musk has also answered some of the questions raised by the community . Their responses show that Neuralink chips, in addition to purely medical functions, would also have recreational applications such as listening to music inside the brain.

"If we implement neuralink, can we listen to music directly from our chips ? Great performance," asked Austin Howard. A question to which Elon Musk responded with a " yes ".

However, the revelations about the uses of Neuralink take on a stranger character. "Since Neuralink was partially inspired by The Culture's neural link [a series of science fiction books where people place themselves with chips implanted in their heads], you think Neuralink will be able to help control hormone levels, use them in our benefit like expanded abilities , reasoning, anxiety relief, etc, in a way similar to the drug glands in the books? "asks user @flcnhvy. A question to which Elon Musk responds again with a " yes ".

Similarly, and more or less on the original line, user @BWillOfficial asks. "Do you think Neuralink will be able to stop rapid stimulation, when necessary, in neural networks for patients with obsessive compulsive disorder? Even stimulate the release of oxytocin, serotonin and other chemicals when necessary? Will it be able to function in neurons and synapses like this? " A series of unknowns to which Musk also answers with a "yes" .
