Fancy being the first volunteer to get one of Musk’s brain implants? Neither do these 14 people
Back in 2016, Elon Musk and a team of experts in fields such as neuroscience and robotics, began working on the brain implant that would eventually become Neuralink.
Effectively a Fitbit hardwired in the head, the device has been tested on pigs and monkeys, with allegations of horrible suffering in the animals, but now might be tried on humans, if Musk can get volunteers.

If the thought of living on the Island of Dr. Moreau appeals to you, this might be your big break. Otherwise …not so much.

Anyone dumb enough to let Musk graft a Fitbit in their brain has no need of it anyway. https://t.co/jNtlCYT14F

Are you happy with the changes we made to Twitter?
Why not let us, the people who brought you self-crashing cars and exploding spaceships, rewire your brain? https://t.co/1avVa8Z86J

Whatever happens, there are going to be conspiracy theories.
Sure, they *say* they're just implanting a microchip into your brain, but actually it secretly vaccinates you against Covid. https://t.co/gugHaL9qIA
