In the past, Mark Zuckerberg was skeptical about implanted devices, but he has recently started changing his attitude towards these technologies.
Following Elon Musk’s footsteps, Mark Zuckerberg has gotten into neural interfaces. Facebook is currently developing neural interfaces that can be controlled using the power of your mind. Zuckerberg was previously opposed to implants. But he has changed his tune, and he is now interested in devices that can directly connect users’ brains to computers. These devices can also be integrated with AR and VR systems.
Facebook made serious strides in this new area when they purchased CTRL-Labs, a company that developed a gadget that can be controlled by signals from the user’s spinal cord. The total amount of the deal is unknown, but experts estimate it to be between $500 million to $1 billion.
One of the company’s motivations is the development of special implants for people with motor problems. The new implantable sensors should rebuild these people’s connection to the outside world.
