Musk says patient moves cursor with brain implant

San Francisco (AFP) Feb 20, 2024
Elon Musk says the first human patient with a brain implant from his Neuralink startup is able to move a computer mouse with thought. Last month, Musk's neurotechnology company installed a brain implant in its first human patient and on Monday Musk reported the experiment had been a success. "The patient seems to have made a full recovery with no ill effects," Musk said in an interview streamed on X, formerly Twitter.

How to avoid getting disoriented in space

Waltham MA (SPX) Nov 13, 2023
When landing on the surface of the Moon, astronauts can become spatially disoriented, which is when they lose sense of their orientation - they might not be able to tell which way is up. This disorientation can lead to fatal accidents. Even on Earth, between 1993 and 2013, spatial disorientation led to the loss of 65 aircraft, US$2.32 billion of damages and 101 deaths in the U.S. Could wearable technology augment the senses of astronauts, allowing them to overcome the limitations of their bi ... read more
