Move over N0tail, JerAx, Anathan Pham and Sébastien Debs.  You might have some new competition in the world of eGaming courtesy of Elon Musk and a monkey.

Musk's company Neuralink has apparently implanted a chip into a monkey's brain that enables it to "play video games using his mind."

Musk claimed as much in a wide-ranging interview conducted on Clubhouse on Sunday night.

Neuralink is focused on human-computer interfaces for artificial intelligence in people.

"We've already got a monkey with a wireless implant in their skull, and the tiny wires, who can play video games using his mind," Musk said in a new interview.

"One of the things we're trying to figure out is can we have the monkeys play mind 'Pong' with each other," he told the hosts of the Good Time Show, a Clubhouse-hosted talk show. "That would be pretty cool."

From Yahoo News:

In that video, Neuralink demonstrated its ability to record and potentially predict actions based on a wired chip implanted in Gertrude's brain.

But according to Musk, the video game-playing monkey was implanted with a wireless chip that enabled it to control an electronic interface with its mind only.

"He's not uncomfortable and he doesn't look weird," Musk said, "And you can't even see where the neural implant went in."
