“Will show neurons firing in real-time on August 28th. The matrix in the matrix.”


Back in July, SpaceX founder Elon Musk announced an event that he said would show off technology by Neuralink, his startup that’s working on an interface between human brains and computers.

“Will show neurons firing in real-time on August 28th,” he tweeted, mysteriously. “The matrix in the matrix.”

Now, with that date coming up on Friday, it could the public’s first opportunity to learn what Musk’s quietest startup has been working on.


What that means is up for interpretation. But Musk, as is his habit, has already set the expectations for the startup sky-high.


“The profound impact of high bandwidth, high precision neural interfaces is underappreciated,” he tweeted back in February. “Neuralink may have this in a human as soon as this year.”

Trial Date

That line has led to some speculation that Musk could be announcing human trials of the secretive company’s technology during the Friday event.

But for now, we’re going to have to wait and see.
