Further thoughts on Neuralink and why the idea is so innovative.

I believe I made a post detailing what might go wrong with it in the recent /lain/ archive if you're interested.

And be sure to check out more of Wait But Why's blog posts. Not it's creator, just really like the site.

| "What might go wrong"? There's no way such a shitty thing doesn't go wrong, it's not "might" but "will"

| >>576155 Well, there's also a lot of things that may go 'right' with this, so I would personally take that risk.

But no problems, hackers will have a lot of fun putting their malwares right into your brain.

| >>576218 Maybe in the far future that is the case, but this isn't necessarily a step towards cybernetic transhumanism. At least not yet. The tech is more akin to something like Google Glass for now. Once this sees widespread use, life would be much more convenient for all. And don't give me that 'the elites will keep it to themselves'. You know that capitalists only care about profit to the detrinent of everything else. Also newsflash, at least you are guaranteed better performance
