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.”

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