Elon Musk spoke about the new capabilities of Neuralink brain chips
At the end of 2020, Neuralink, founded by Elon Musk, plans to conduct the first tests of brain chips on humans . In addition to restoring the functions of vision, motor muscles and hearing, they, as conceived by engineers, can significantly expand human capabilities.
Elon Musk named the date for the presentation of Neuralink technologies, and also spoke about the unusual property of a promising development. This is reported by Informant Tech , citing the Independent .
According to the businessman, Neuralink brain chips will be able to significantly expand the range of frequencies heard by their owner. In theory, the average human ear is capable of recognizing sound with a frequency of 20 to 20,000 Hz. The use of Neuralink’s developments is expected to help enhance the capabilities of the hearing organ by teaching the brain to perceive ultrasound and sounds with very low vibration frequencies. In addition, Elon Musk recently said that thanks to Neuralink chips, users will be able to listen to music right in their head.

The company also continues to work to ensure that the new chips can restore the movements of a person with a damaged spinal cord, regulate the level of hormones in the body, or affect the emotional state of the patient. Previously, Neuralink published a document describing how to connect implants to a special computing unit using a USB Type-C cable for high bandwidth. It is expected that such a design will allow people with spinal cord injuries to control a computer or smartphone with their minds. Elon Musk promised to tell more about the company’s achievements in the field of chip development on August 28 at the official presentation.
