Elon Musk’s Neuralink shows first brain-chip patient playing chess

The first patient to receive a brain chip from Elon Musk’s company Neuralink has been shown playing online chess.
Neuralink released a nine-minute video in which the patient, who is paralyzed below his shoulders, appears to move a cursor across a laptop screen with nothing but his thoughts. The video shows him playing chess and turning off the laptop’s music.Musk previously said the aim of the brain chip is to eventually allow users with disabilities, like the late Stephen Hawking, to “communicate faster than an auctioneer”.
He has also claimed it would be able to potentially treat obesity, autism, depression and schizophrenia.
