Tesla CEO Alan Musk said the monkey’s brain was wired by Neuralink, the company he founded, in such a way that it could play video games. The company has placed a computer chip in the monkey’s skull and attached it to the brain with a thin wire.

An English news channel reported that the monkey seemed happy after the wiring. The surgery was performed by Neuralink in accordance with US standards.

“If you look, you don’t even know where the neural implant is,” Musk said in a conversation via the new Social Media Club House app. There just seems to be a slight darkening. Neuralink is trying to test whether it can play mind pong with monkeys by implanting a chip. Musk, CEO of Tesla, SpaceX and Neuralink, said it would be a cool event if the monkey played a video game.
