Neuralink Day Highlights a Brain Implant With Over 4000 Channels


Neuralink showed off its implantable device which is slightly larger than a quarter. They showed the device working in several monkeys and they showed the surgical robot that will be used to implant the device.

They are working to repair spinal damage. The current experiments are to monitor and activate spinal activity in a pig. They are controlling the leg movement of a pig.

They had some neuralink visual experiments.

They have 1000 channels per chip and four chips per implant. The next implant will have 4000 channels and four chips with over 16000 channels. The implant has 64 threads that go to different parts of the brain.

They have in-house microdesign and fabrication. They are able to iterate on designs for new needles every hour.

They have custom built chips and they have wireless charging.

The goal the implant procedure to be as fast as a lasik eye treatment.

Quantum Heat Pump Made From Particles of Light

Physicists from TU Delft, ETH Zürich and the University of Tübingen have built a quantum scale heat pump made from particles of light. This device brings scientists closer to the quantum limit of measuring radio frequency signals, useful in for example the hunt for dark matter. Above-An illustration of the device, which consists of two…

Busting Zeihan’s Peak EV Claim Made on the Joe Rogan Show

Peter Zeihan has chosen to claim that the electric car revolution will start to fail around 2030 and “disappear” in the 2030s. This is another convenient claim that will give Peter Zeihan another stream of income lasting until he retires around 2040. It is something where EVs will continue to grow and scale but where…

Vladislav Delay, Eivind Aarset and AGF give generative shape to dread noise with creative coder Olivia Jack’s open source video synthesizer, Hydra

To accompany Vladislav Delay and Eivind Aarset’s collaborative track, ‘Single 22’, audiovisual artist AGF used Hydra, an open source, browser based video synthesizer to create live coded generative visuals. As Room40’s Lawrence English notes, it’s little wonder that Sasu Ripatti and Eivind Aarset found each other eventually. Both artists have challenged the precepts of their…
