On a Clubhouse panel, Elon Musk said his company Neuralink has implanted one of its brain-chips into a monkey, allowing the animal to play video games with his mind. Musk told the panel that there's no sign of where the wireless neural chip was implanted, that the monkey doesn't appear "uncomfortable", and that "he's a happy monkey". He also stated that he will release videos of the monkeys using the computer-brain interface in the near future.

Neuralink 101: Neuralink founded in 2016 by Musk is a neural tech company that develops devices that could eventually sync the human brain with AI. The company is currently trying to figure out if it can use its chips to get monkeys to play “mind Pong” with each other.
