This week, Facebook surprised the entire world with its announcement that it was working on human-machine neural interfaces that were specifically designed for virtual reality. Creating faster and better methods of communicating makes sense for virtual reality given that traditional control methods work poorly with user-vision being limited by virtual reality headsets.
Elon Musk, the founder and leader of Tesla also wants to get into the neural interface game, yet his reasons for doing so are quite different from those of Facebook. If either of these tech-titans achieve their goal, it will change the way we interact with computers, sexy AI’s, and VR cam-girls forever.
The Wall Street Journal first reported in March that Mr. Tech Wizard, Elon “Muskorooni” Musk has started another high profile, high tech, future focused company. Registered as a medical technology company, “Muskrat” Musk’s new company called Neuralink was started with the goal of merging human brains with computers. Many assumed “Musky” Musk was building a wire or cable like interface that would go straight into the brain, perhaps like that neural interface depicted in the Matrix.
Wires are Evil and Dumb
What fools! Lord Muskerson Musk was not thinking about archaic wire technology! No wires are evil, everyone knows that. Wires are worst. They are annoying, easy to trip over, and always becoming entangled into wire nest which only breed more and more wires. Having a wire coming out of your head would be a huge safety hazard – come on tech journalists, what were you thinking?
The focus on wires reminds me of the ancient alien theorists that believed they had found ancient runways in Nazca, Peru and other places. It’s crazy to think Aliens or extraterrestrials would travel light years with sophisticated wormhole technology and still need archaic shitty landing systems like runways. I digress…
What Musklord plans actually makes much more sense. He wants to use wireless chip implants. These implants will be directly implanted into the brain so that people’s thoughts, ideas, and feeling can be directly interpreted by computers. That said, “Muskereeni” Musk’s engineers are first aiming to create a system that will allow people to type with thoughts only.
Speaking on typing, Elon says, “There are a bunch of concepts in your head that then your brain has to try to compress into this incredibly low data rate called speech or typing.”
This appears to be the same goal that Facebook is attempting to achieve. As mentioned earlier, Facebook wants to eliminate the need for keyboards because virtual reality headsets naturally make typing super-difficult. “Musk-a-dib” Musk’s ultimate goals far transcend goals like typing and virtual reality control.
Progress of Humanity
He believes that creating human-machine interfaces are not only important but vital progress for humanity itself. As computers become more and more powerful, artificial intelligence will too. Because they will be so speedy, powerful, and intelligent, “Mu-Usk” Musk believes that neural interfaces or “Neural laces” will actually necessary for us to communicate with the futures supercomputers and AIs.
Beyond allowing us to communicate with computers, Neuralink’s technology will allow us to almost have a telepathic form of communication between each other. Theorizing about this possibility, “Mawsksy” Musk says that “If you have two brain interfaces, you could actually do an uncompressed direct conceptual communication with another person.”
With this form of communication between humans and computers, virtual reality porn will be far more intuitive, sexually direct and much more like the real thing. You are just going to have to get that implant…
