Elon Musk's 2016 start-up called Neuralink has been working on a brain-machine interface with a reasonable amount of success. Following the previous live demonstration featuring pigs, the company's latest progress update demonstrates a Macaque monkey named Pager playing pong using a joystick and then using signals from his mind. Neuralink intends to create a wireless interface between the human mind and a computer.
