Elon Musk’s Neu­ralink hit a speed­bump with its first brain-com­put­er inter­face (BCI) implant. The chip, implant­ed in 29-year-old Nolan Arbaugh in Jan­u­ary, had some tiny wires (threads) detach.

Neu­ralink’s BCI lets par­a­lyzed peeps con­trol gad­gets with their thoughts! The implant has super-thin threads with elec­trodes that pick up brain sig­nals. This mal­func­tion made it hard to track how well the implant worked.

But Neu­ralink did­n’t freak out! They tweaked the record­ing soft­ware, improved how brain sig­nals turn into cur­sor move­ments, and upgrad­ed the user inter­face. These fix­es gave Arbaugh a super­charged cur­sor con­trol (BPS way up!), even bet­ter than before the glitch! âšĄïž

Even with the set­back, Neu­ralink kept the implant in because it’s safe for Arbaugh. He now uses the BCI sys­tem for up to 10 hours a day on weekends!

This glitch slows Neu­ralink down a bit, but their fast fix shows they’re seri­ous about mak­ing mind-con­trol a real­i­ty! #Neu­ralink #BCI #BrainChip #FutureTech
