Implanted chip in brain controls smartphone

Founded by Elon Musk, the start-up Neuralink aims to use its so-called N1 chip implant to connect human brains with computers. The chip will be implanted using a specially developed robot that precisely connects the chip's threads, which are a third the diameter of human hair, to the right parts of the brain. Once implanted, it will also be possible to control a smartphone, for example, via the N1 chip. The company is running its first experiments on animals and rates them as highly promising.
