Elon Musk's new startup will literally download your memories

Posted March 29

Elon Musk wants you to ride around in a driverless car. Elon Musk wants to take you to Mars. Elon Musk wants to connect your brain to a computer.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Musk’s new startup plans to merge computers with human brains as a way to help the population keep up with technology.

The company, called Neuralink Corp., will embrace “neural lace” technology, which requires “implanting tiny brain electrodes that may one day upload and download thoughts.”

Insiders told WSJ that Musk will take a leadership role with the company. He’s also helped set up the company in a significant way already.

This is “a bold step for a father of five who already runs two technologically complex businesses,” WSJ reported.
