    You know what, a high tech futuristic implant would be cool. Imagine being able to get high just by thinking about it, and the implant stimulates your brain cells like THC or alcohol would, or make you think you’re playing on the beach tossing a beach ball with some dolphins while you’re at work grinding away. Or controlling vehicles like fighter jets with just your mind. You become the plane and can feel every air current across your wings, turning it into a precision flying machine able to thread canyon gaps all day.

    But not anything from this asshole.

    In addition, the company’s surgeons plan to “sculpt the surface of the skull” to minimize the gap under the implant so that it sits flush with the normal contour of the skull. This, MacDougall said, should “minimize the gap under the implant” and “put it closer to the brain and eliminate some of the tension on the threads.”

    Its wild that they didn’t do this the first time

      There’s a difference between an idiot and someone who is extremely desperate.

      An idiot is someone who is abled and puts this shit in their heads.

      The people neuralink is using are just desperate. I can’t imagine losing function of all my limbs. I think I would be willing to do some pretty risky stuff if I did.
