Billionaire Elon Musk says the chips, which will be implanted in human brains, will allow paralysed people to walk again, similar to 1970s cult TV show The Six Million Dollar Man, starring Lee Majors
Space billionaire Elon Musk says he is just one year away from creating the ‘six million dollar man’. The eccentric tech tycoon said implanting chips into the human brain will allow paralysed people to walk again.
His new device will help improve vision, strength and host of other injuries connected to the brain. Musk, 48, said: “The device would be implanted in your skull. “Electrode threads would be inserted carefully into the brain and you wouldn’t know that somebody has it. “It can interface anywhere in the brain. “In principle it can fix almost anything that is wrong with the brain and it can restore limb functionality. “People can walk around and be normal – maybe slightly better – like the six million dollar man though these days that would be cheap.”
