I read this story about Elon Musk doing something something with a microchip that you can put in your brain and my first thought was to agree with Kristian at Dlisted here about why there’s not more focus in helping people with brain diseases and my second thought was… is this the Matrix? Like one day, will they be able to put a chip behind my ear and suddenly I’ll be able to fly a helicopter? Will monkeys one day be flying helicopters?
