Elon Musk, a tech billionaire, said that the first person who got a Neuralink brain chip is doing well. He said that the chip can detect brain signals very well. He said this on X, a social media platform, after the operation on Sunday.

Neuralink is a company that makes brain chips. These chips, which are called brain-computer interfaces, or BCI, can let people use computers or phones without touching them. They can just think about what they want to do. The company’s website says this.

In May, the company said that the FDA allowed them to put brain chips in people. In September, the company said that they can start testing the brain chips on people.

The U.S. Government allowed Neuralink's brain chips to be placed in people.

Elon Musk showed a picture of the brain chip in an online video on August 28, 2020. He said that the US government’s permission was a big step for their technology. He said that their technology can make brains and computers work together.

He said that the brain chip is called Telepathy. According to Musk, the brain chip can help people who cannot move or talk to use a computer or a keyboard by thinking.

He said, “Imagine if Stephen Hawking could talk faster than a person who types or speaks very fast. That is what we want to do.” Musk mention this on X, which used to be called Twitter.

The company uses a robot to put the brain chip in the brain. The brain chip is in a part of the brain that controls movement. The brain chip can send and receive brain signals without wires. It can use an app to understand what the person wants to do.

How does the robot put the brain chip in the brain? The robot is made for this purpose. It has a very thin needle that can go into the brain. It also has 64 thin wires that connect the brain chip to the brain. The wires have 1,024 small parts that can read brain signals.

The robot has five cameras. It can also use a special method to see inside the brain without cutting it. The company says this.

What can the brain chip do? The company wants to help people who cannot move or talk to use computers or phones with their brain. The brain chip has many parts inside it. It also has a battery and other things that are sealed inside. The brain chip is as big as a large coin.

Many thin wires come out of the brain chip. They go into the brain. The brain chip can send and receive brain signals with Bluetooth. It can use a brain-computer interface to understand what the person wants to do. For example, the person can move a cursor or a robot arm with their brain.

Musk said, “The first thing we want to do is to make a wireless brain chip that can help someone who cannot move or talk to use a computer, or mouse, or phone, or any device … just by thinking. This can make their life much easier. It is like a Fitbit in your skull with tiny wires that go to your brain.” He said this in an online chat in 2021.

The company also wants to help people who cannot move or talk to move and talk again. They also want to help people who cannot see to see again.
