Very rich individual Elon Musk showed a video from his personal Twitter account Thursday seemingly showing a monkey playing a version of Pong with only its brain activity. Musk’s company Neuralink says that two devices on each side of the monkey’s brain observe their activity and relay that activity to the game.

AI is only going to get smarter and Neuralink’s technology could one day allow humans to “go along for the ride,” Musk said in a January interview. The mogul’s statement reads as prophecy now that the monkey has played the Pong.

I wonder what’s next for the Willy Wonka of technical advances? Maybe he’ll get a Zebra to consistently win ‘Bumper Balls’ in Mario Party 2. Until that day however, I am unconcerned by the technomancer’s meddling.
