Elon Musk's Neuralink plans its first brain chip implants for next year

Neuralink’s first electrode array, meanwhile, which is a tiny chip it calls N1, features 1,000 channels. Rather than stiff electrodes that can bring a risk of injury, the N1 array uses very tiny and flexible threads around a third the diameter of human hair. These would be sewn into the brain tissue by a robotic surgeon, which Neuralink has also developed to safely insert the electrodes without rupturing blood vessels in the brain.
