Tech Roundup – Week #1 September 2020

Neuralink demo on pigs

Last week, Elon Musk revealed Gertrude, a pig with a Neuralink implant surgically attached to its skull. The device can pick up signals from the pig’s snout as it shuffled around its pen. The device communicates with the brain via 1,024 tiny electrodes.
