Since Elon is so publicly facing with his other ventures, it seems like Neuralink kinda gets pushed under the rug, but as time passes, it’ll be fun to see how the company grows and what societal awareness they raise. I’m most excited about Neuralink’s future than any other company. The prospect of a remedy for Alzheimer’s and/ or decreased limb functionality is super inspiring.
Put yourself in the circumstances of someone who has decreased ability to walk, limited ability to grab objects in daily life, or has severe paralysis. It’s no guarantee Neuralink will develop a fully functional remedy, but…
On July 29, 2021, Neuralink announced they completed their Series C funding round of $205 million. In this article, we’ll be exploring what this possibly reveals about the company’s progress.
Series C funding rounds are focused on growing a company as quickly as possible after a business has reached a certain threshold of success. The threshold of success likely is referring to the N1 Link, the company’s first product that is designed to assist quadriplegics with computer use, which is currently in the process of being released into the market. …
Hey everyone! In this article, we’ll share some recent updates about Neuralink. If you’re new to this page, welcome to Neura Pod! We’re a channel about all things related to the Elon Musk company, Neuralink, and the field of brain-machine interfaces and neurotechnology.

Here’s the outline for the July 2021 Neuralink Update Article:
Despite how cool or frightening that may sound, that’s not the only thing Neuralink is working on.
This Elon Musk company is not as well known as Tesla or SpaceX, but they sure will be if they keep making progress like this. If you aren’t familiar with Neuralink, the quick few things you need to know are:
Here’s my reaction to the video Neuralink released on their company YouTube page:
This isn’t the first time Neuralink’s demonstrated being able to safely implant a Neuralink into animals. …
Would you insert a chip in your brain to play video games at triple or quadruple speed? Despite how cool or frightening that may sound, that’s not the only thing Neuralink is working on.
This Elon Musk company is not as well known as Tesla or SpaceX, but they sure will be if they keep making progress like this. …
Elon Musk thinks it’s a good idea to merge Neuralink, Tesla, SpaceX, and the Boring Company by creating an Elon Musk Conglomerate called ‘X.’
In this article, I’ll discuss how this idea came to be, write a little about Neuralink and investing, and also Elon’s vision for the future of being a multi-planetary species.
For simplicity’s sake, let’s imagine Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway or Alphabet, the parent company of Google. Elon Musk responded to a tweet from Dave Lee suggesting he create a holding company that includes these companies and future endeavors. …
Earlier this week, Max wrote on Twitter, “People don’t get just how close we are to true high bandwidth neural interfaces. From a world of atoms to a world of bits within — not long!” In responding to a follow-up question, Max said we may shift to a world of bits within a decade, but it “depends on how much we want it.”
For those who are unfamiliar, neural interfaces are a connection for communication between…
I wanted to share thoughts about predictions I’ve heard related to Neuralink: these range from Neuralink giving us the ability to stream music directly to our brains to Neuralink developing a full cyborg robot-human.
The likelihood of the second prediction coming true depends on how you define a cyborg. If you’re thinking half-man, half-machine with robot arms or legs and therefore super-human strength, that seems pretty unlikely in my opinion. However, if you’re thinking Neuralink could enable us to have super-human brains, I think that’s pretty likely.
Neuralink is working on the tech that will support building super-human brains, but…
In this article:
- Elon talking about pricing
- Cost of Neuralink implant vs other procedures
- How that pricing is possible
Elon discusses the future pricing of a Neuralink implant- high cost at the beginning, decline rapidly, an d then likely settle around a few thousand dollars (similar to the cost of LASIK).
Since Elon references the cost of LASIK eye surgery, I decided to LOOK into some pricing stats. For those who don’t know, LASIK is a surgery often performed with a robot and laser.
There’s lots of variation…

- Growth/ stats and inspiring goals
One of the primary leaders of the BrainGate team, Dr. Leigh Hochberg was interviewed about a month ago. During that conversation, he discussed some of the goals of their research and some info related to the trials they’re conducting. Dr. Hochberg also mentioned BrainGate is working alongside Neuralink. When asked about whether there are companies investing big dollars in this space vs academic research money, Dr. Hochberg indicated the Division of Clinical Research at the Massachusetts General Hospital has an agreement…
