The first person with a brain chip implanted demonstrates racing

 The video shows Nolan Arbaugh skillfully playing the racing game with just his thoughts, surprising many people.

Nolan Arbaugh, 29 years old, was completely paralyzed after a serious accident eight years ago. Currently he can only move his head and neck.

However, after Nolan had a chip developed by Neuralink implanted in his brain, his life changed and Nolan accomplished things that he thought he would never be able to do in his current situation.

Accordingly, Nolan Arbaugh performed surgery to implant a brain chip on January 30. 2 months after the surgery, Nolan's health has completely recovered and he can control the mouse cursor on the computer, play games on the laptop for many hours continuously or post on social networks... all just with your own thoughts.

Recently, Nolan Arbaugh shared a video on his personal X account, showing that he was invited to visit Neuralink company headquarters as the first person to have the company's chip implanted in his brain. At this visit, Nolan had the opportunity to talk to the company's employees about his own experiences after receiving a brain chip implant.

"Neuralink was kind enough to open their doors to me for a tour of their headquarters a few weeks ago. It was a wonderful experience and a day I will never forget. Thank you to everyone who made it possible "This becomes reality. I hope one day to tell my story completely," Nolan Arbaugh shared on social network X.

At a meeting of Neuralink employees, Nolan Arbaugh shared a short video showing that he was able to play the racing game Mario Kart with his father. The video shows Nolan just lying still and using his thoughts to control the character in the game.

Even though he plays the game with his mind, the character in Nolan's game still moves smoothly across the track with ease, as if being controlled directly with a game controller. Nolan finished the race in 2nd place and was even able to use his character's moves in the game to attack other opponents.

The clip does not clearly mention which device Nolan and his son played the game on, but it is likely that he played the Mario Kart simulation game on the computer, as Nolan could previously control the mouse pointer on the computer. by thinking competently.

The chip implanted in Nolan's brain works by reading his nerve signals, then converting the brain signals into command lines that remotely control the device via Bluetooth, allowing Nolan to control the device using think.

"What you guys are doing is going to change the world," Nolan said at a meeting of Neuralink employees. "It will change the lives of people like me. It's unbelievable, I can't even put my feelings into words."

A Neuralink representative said that since implanting the chip in his brain, Nolan has used this chip to perform a total of 111,315 left clicks and 35,045 right clicks with his brain. The total time the chip has been active so far is 143 hours and Nolan had the longest continuous gaming session at 7.6 hours.

Neuralink is a neurotechnology company founded by Elon Musk in 2016, with the ambition to help cure neurological diseases for humans and help people become smarter.

After initial achievements with Nolan Arbaugh, Elon Musk set a goal for the next generation of Neuralink chips to help cure blindness for visually impaired people.
