Ep. 132: This Is Your Brain On Musk
Elon Musk wants to drill a hole in your head and jack your shit into the matrix. This will definitely kill you, but after watching the recent Democratic Debates, we must ask--would a relatively quick death at the hands of an eccentric man-child be preferable to living a long and life with the memory of John Delaney.
But it isn't just Musk that wants to plug you into a computer--Facebook, a cadre of another benevolent group of rich brain enthusiasts also want to access to that sweet sweet grey matter. So what's the deal brain-to-computer interfaces. What do they mean for our health, our privacy, and even our humanity?
All that and a few choice remarks about Corey Booker’s new and improved smoothness this week on Future Left.
