      They are back together and even had a second child.

      I also don't know how these people continue their lives in the show business like this...

      Less than 5 years. In other words, not a priority for Elon.

      All Hail Free Speech.

      They haven’t even started clinics trials in humans. That actually is a pretty aggressive timeline.

      I just googled and it looks like Grimes started a new relationship in March.

      I hope Musk works like crazy to forget about it.

      Lol.

      Send it.

      This will be a game changer if I can control an iPad without putting my beer and cigar down.

      What's the mechanism of action for this device? Are they developing the interface or the tinnitus treatment protocol? I have a feeling it's the former, not the latter.

      This seems way too complicated. Non-invasive cochlear implant seems much easier and has had quite good results so far. This would most likely not work on cochlear-based tinnitus as well.

      What's a non-invasive CI? Where can I learn more about it?

      I actually contacted this trial the other day.

      Unfortunately, being on antidepressants and anti-anxiety meds excluded me.

      I asked if I could be provided with any information regarding this implant. I was told no unfortunately, due to patents on the device.

      @DaveFromChicago, aren't you the patent researcher?

      Both are similar tech as in they are brain interfaces but Synchron's approach is considered 'minimally invasive' as it is an endovascular approach, whereas Neuralink is consider majorly invasive.

      I really think that implantables are the answer but most doctors would disagree.

      Well, everyone thought Apple was crazy introducing iPhone in 2007, that was easily breakable, needed charging overnight and why the hell would we use such a small screen to interact with the Internet.

      I guess some people like Jobs and Musk can see the future better than others but the problem here is the goddamned archaic FDA and similar regulators.

      I think they are going to put an obstacle after obstacle in Neuralink's path. Maybe for good intentions, but also maybe delaying treatment that is badly needed by many millions.

      Loud concert
      The mind ping-pong was amazing. First I was like "but he's doing just the same thing again" and then I realized "oh, it's unplugged!" Also good to hear that tinnitus is on their list, though it seems a no-brainer because Neuralink to me is the next generation of deep brain stimulation which does work for tinnitus.

      How much would that chip cost? (If, if, success)

      No one has a clue. I'd imagine early versions for paralysis would be expensive, but by 2027 the price will be dictated by what it offers and if there is a demand for the chip. If it cures tinnitus by then I'd imagine demand would be high if safety data between now and then is 100% and it is a rock solid procedure.

      What would you pay to be rid of your tinnitus? That could be a good starting point.

      Are they still together? Hopefully they do not break up.
