Elon Musk is founding another company


Somehow Elon Musk has found the time to start another company. The company will be the vehicle for the development of the "neural lace" Musk discussed on Twitter and elsewhere, according to the The Wall Street Journal. The "neural lace" Musk has talked about is typically described as an implant or an appendage that would be attached to the brain, that would provide a way for brains to interact with devices, or otherwise augment human intelligence. Speaking at the Code Conference in 2016, Musk said to think of the arrangement this way: "You have your limbic system, the cortex, and then a digital layer, sort of a third layer above the cortex that could work well and symbiotically with you." Though the lace would interact directly with a person's brain, Musk said implanting it might not require extensive surgery, remarking that it could be injected into the veins.
