Neuralink Chip Implant Allows Monkey To Play Video Game ‘Pong’ Using Only Its Brain As Elon Musk Prepares To Chip Human Brains Next

The three minute video shows Pager learning to control a computer with his brain activity. At first, the monkey uses a joystick to interact with the computer for a "tasty banana smoothie, delivered through a straw." The narrator states Pager has two Neuralink devices implanted in his brain. The devices, which Musk calls a "Fitbit for your skull," were revealed at a press briefing in August 2020.

Neuralink, the brain-implant start up founded by SpaceX head honcho and self-appointed techno king Elon Musk, has unveiled a new video of a nine-year-old monkey named ‘Pager’ playing Pong…with its brain.

Big Tech titan Elon Musk seemingly has the ‘midas touch’ with just about every he puts his hands on succeeds to a very high degree. From launching rockets into space to the self-driving Tesla, Musk is firing on all eight cylinders, pun intended. Not only that, after a jaw-dropping Neuralink test on a monkey named Pager, he is now getting ready to launch human implantable microchips for your brain.

“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” Revelation 13:16-18 (KJB)

Watching the video of the monkey playing the video game using the controls is unsettling enough, but then about halfway through, Pager the monkey suddenly figures out that all he needs to keep playing the game is using his thoughts. If that doesn’t show you how deep we are into the end times right now, then nothing will.

Elon Musk’s Neuralink reveals monkey playing Pong with brain implant

FROM CNET: The three minute video shows Pager learning to control a computer with his brain activity. At first, the monkey uses a joystick to interact with the computer for a “tasty banana smoothie, delivered through a straw.” The narrator states Pager has two Neuralink devices implanted in his brain. The devices, which Musk calls a “Fitbit for your skull,” were revealed at a press briefing in August 2020.

As Pager plays through the games, the narrator explains the Neuralink devices in his brain are reading his brain activity and that activity is being decoded by a computer. When the team disconnect the joystick, Pager keeps playing the game — and the brain-implant allows him to play “MindPong,” as Neuralink has dubbed it. Musk claimed in a tweet Thursday that the first product from the startup would allow “someone with paralysis to use a smartphone with their mind faster than someone using thumbs.” That’s a future that still seems a long way off.

“MindPong is an initial demonstration of the potential capabilities of the N1 Link,” the company said in a press release. “However, it’s important to remember that it is a small slice of what our device is intended to achieve.”

Neuralink has been relatively radio-silent since it was first founded in 2016. In the past two years, the startup has produced two Musk-helmed press briefings, detailing its forward momentum. In 2019, the Neuralink device debuted and steady progress seemed to have been made in the following year, when the pig implants were revealed.

The briefings also functioned as recruitment drives, with Musk asking people to get in touch and join up. A similar call out is posted at the end of the Neuralink monkey video. But information is still scant: Musk and Neuralink have published one scientific paper, in the Journal of Medical Internet Research, back in October 2019.

Musk teased Neuralink had wired up a monkey’s brain to play video games during a Clubhouse meeting back in February. “We have a monkey with a wireless implant in their skull who can play video games using his mind,” he noted. We’ve now see that in action, but we haven’t got much in the way of scientific evidence here, just yet.

In the concurrent press release on Neuralink’s website, the company states “our first goal is to give people with paralysis their digital freedom back: to communicate more easily via text, to follow their curiosity on the web, to express their creativity through photography and art, and, yes, to play video games.”

It’s been a weird few days for Neuralink. Earlier this week Neuralink president and co-founder, Max Hodak, made an ambiguous tweet about Jurassic Park that many publications took to mean Neuralink was investing in dino DNA development. Monkeys playing Pong isn’t quite dino DNA but… maybe it’s even more impressive? Who am I to say? READ MORE

When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. Even all the way to South Africa. We even restarted our weekly radio Bible study on Sunday nights again, thanks to your generous donations. All this is possible because YOU pray for us, YOU support us, and YOU give so we can continue growing.

But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. If every one of the 15,860+ people on our daily mailing list gave $4.50, we would reach our goal immediately. If every one of our 150,000+ followers on Facebook gave $1.00 each, we would reach 300% of our goal. The same goes for our 15,900 followers on Twitter. But sadly, many will not give, so we need the ones who can and who will give to be generous. As generous as possible.
