Somehow Elon Musk has found the time to start another company.
The company — called Neuralink — will be the vehicle for the development of the "neural lace" Musk discussed on Twitter and elsewhere, the The Wall Street Journal first reported. Musk later confirmed the existence of the company in a tweet and said that more details were coming "in about a week".
The "neural lace" Musk has talked about is typically described as an implant or an appendage that would be attached to the brain, that would provide a way for brains to interact with devices, or otherwise augment human intelligence.
Speaking at the Code Conference in 2016, Musk said to think of the arrangement this way: "You have your limbic system, the cortex, and then a digital layer, sort of a third layer above the cortex that could work well and symbiotically with you."
