The MIT Technology edition has announced an unusual match - a virtual ping pong. A paralyzed man and a monkey from the Neuralink project will take part in the game.
Such a game is possible due to implants that have been placed in the brain of each opponent. Nathan Copeland, partially paralyzed after the accident, is the initiator of the match.
Copeland was actively involved in the University of Pittsburgh team's tests while the macaque received a brain chip as a result of Neuralink experiments. Thanks to his brain implant and robotic arm, Copeland is an active Internet user.
From the Internet, Copeland knew about the macaque that had learned to play mental ping pong, and decided to challenge it to a game. As Nathan actively uses the streaming service Twitch, the competition may be broadcast online.
