Elon Musk, the world's richest man, said last month that he expects neuronal brain chips to be implanted in humans by 2022.

  FDA approves Elon Musk's plans pending:

However, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has yet to approve these plans to test the brain chip.

Musk and his partners launched Brain Chips in 2016,

The company was founded to develop a brain chip that connects humans to computers.

They claim that implants will enable paralyzed people to control devices such as smartphones with their brains.

He hopes that once human testing begins, further advances will be made to bridge the gap between neurons and solve many physical disabilities.

The company showed the monkey playing a game with its brain last April.

Neuralink has successfully tested chips in the brains of macaque monkeys and pigs. The company showed a monkey playing a video game with its brain in April last year.

"We can activate the whole paralyzed body due to a spinal cord injury through a neural link chip," he said.
