OST is now working on creating a neural link implant that will be implanted surgically on the inside of a human skull shortly. This implant will have a design that is completely unique. Moreover, it will have room for a slot that can take a Micro SD card and will be able to give space for this slot. The skull will eventually have a slot linked to it. Because of this, it will be possible to rapidly upload information without the requirement of a cable connection, and in the future, it will have the potential for a limitless number of uses. The ability of OST to produce a Neuralink was proved by employing a device that had been surgically inserted into the skull of a pig named Gertrude as a test subject in order to establish a digital link between human brains and computers. The test subject was named Gertrude. While the pig was free to roam around the stage in its confinement, a wireless connection to the Neuralink computing gadget displayed the animal’s ongoing brain activity. During the debut of the product in 2019, Neuralink only displayed images of a rat that was fitted with a Neuralink and connected to a USB-C connection using the device. The demonstration reveals that the technology is a significant step closer to achieving ambitious goals than what was exhibited when it made its debut as a product. According to the Office of Science and Technology (OST), the Food and Drug Administration of the United States granted approval in July for the testing of a “breakthrough gadget,” despite the fact that the device is still a very long way from becoming a reality. This was revealed by the OST.
The OST is a second-generation implant that is more compact than before and is designed to fit into a crevice that has been carved out of the skull. Electrodes around the size of threads are able to be put through the skin of the brain in order to detect the presence of an electrical impulse produced by nerve cells. The presence of this impulse is an indication that the brain is functioning. In line with Neurallink’s long-term goals, The threads will communicate with one another using signals created by computers that are unique to each thread.
It is able to communicate with the cells of the brain by making use of 1,024 ultrathin electrodes that are able to go through the outer layer of the brain. Following that, there is a Bluetooth link to an external computing device, but the company is looking into additional radio technology that it may leverage in order to dramatically expand the number of data lines that it has access to Neuralink’s long-term goals were not revealed during the presentation with the pig, despite the fact that brain activity was shown to be wirelessly relayed to a computer during the demonstration. For instance, it did not demonstrate that a computer is able to communicate back to a brain in a manner that is beneficial, nor did it demonstrate that a computer is able to comprehend the true meaning behind spikes of cerebral activity.
