Ilon Musk is sure that in the future people will completely abandon smartphones in favor of brain implants

Billionaire and founder Tesla and SpaceX Elon Musk made his prediction&nbsp ;about the future of gadgets. In his opinion, humanity will eventually abandon smartphones. The businessman believes that they will be replaced by brain implants.

In particular, it is about the technology of the company Neuralink, which Musk owns. The invention allows you to control computers with the help of thoughts. The businessman published the corresponding tweet on his X social network.

The discussion of this topic began with a post by a user with the nickname Not Elon Musk. This post asked the question: “Would you implant a Neuralink interface into your brain to control your new X-Phone by thinking?”. The real Elon Musk has already answered this question.

He noted that “there will be no telephones” in the future. And instead of them there will be “only Neuralinks”. At the same time, Musk did not substantiate his assumption in any way.

What is known about Neuralink

Mask's company Neuralink develops brain implants and other devices for brain-computer interfaces. For a long time, they could not start tests on people. In February, the first Neuralink test subject, 29-year-old paralyzed Nolan Arbo, managed to interact with a computer cursor, play simple games and communicate on social networks with the help of a chip. But in May, the system malfunctioned.

In May, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted Neuralink permission to implant its brain chip in a second volunteer. To do this, the company submitted a report to the department about what caused the problems with the first Telepathy chip and proposed a solution. Neuralink plans to implant its device in a second patient in June.
