Are your mechanical skills slow? Is that the only reason you kind of suck at your favorite game? Then use your mind! Elon Musk's Neuralink science company proved that even a monkey can play a game like Pong using only its mind. The future is now.

A monkey was filmed playing Pong without using its hands, and playing well at that. How is that possible? By the amazing technology of Neuralink - a system designed to allow interaction with computers using just your brain.

The Future of Gaming? Elon Musk's Monkey Plays Pong with Its Mind

We are sometimes bamboozled by how far science can go while everyone is busy watching/doing the latest TikTok trend. The people at Neuralink have produced one of these "wow" moments with their latest YouTube video. They demonstrated a chip that, once installed in your brain, can allow you to interact with computers with the power of your mind.

As you can see, the 9-year-old monkey – Pager – has little difficulty in playing his favorite game of Pong and doing remarkably well without the use of his hands.

Neuralink was co-founded in 2016 by Elon Musk, so we can't be surprised that the company is giving us eye-popping content aimed at altering the near future.

Could we have access to a similar type of chip working with human brains soon? It appears that anything is possible, so why not get that ace in League of Legends without the click of a button? The future is indeed now, and we are living in it.
