Neuralink , the brain implant company founded by Elon Musk, has successfully completed its first clinical trial. In addition, Mr. Mask has announced that the name of Neuralink's first product will be 'Telepathy.'

Neuralink is a company founded by Mr. Musk in 2017, and is conducting research and development to implant IC chips into the human brain to provide functions such as 'connection with external devices' and 'augmentation of vision.' In May, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a human clinical trial plan . In September 2023, we will begin recruiting subjects for the clinical trial.

Furthermore, Mr. Mask said, ``Neuralink's first product is called Telepathy.''

Musk continued, ``[Telepathy implanted in the brain] would allow people to control smartphones, computers, and the devices connected to them just by thinking. People who have lost limbs will be the first users. Stephen Hawking... 'Imagine being able to communicate faster than a typist or an auctioneer. That's our goal,' he said, pointing to the prospect of providing products for people who have lost limb function.
