Monkey Plays Video Games With Its Mind Using Elon Musk’s Neuralink

Posted by on April 13, 2021 in Sci-Tech, Technology with 0 Comments

Neuralink, a company founded by Musk that develops artificial intelligence-powered microchips to go into people’s brains, released a video Thursday that appeared to show a macaque using the technology to play video games, including “Pong.”

Musk has boasted about Neuralink’s tests on primates before, but this is the first time the company has exhibited one. During a presentation in 2019, Musk said the company allowed a monkey to “control a computer with its brain.”

Following up on this claim, the company has now released a video of a 9-year-old macaque named Pager using a fully wireless brain-machine interface (BMI) to play the classic game Pong.


As the narrator of the video explains, the Neuralink device was first implanted in Pager’s brain about six weeks before the footage was filmed.
