“Elon Musk’s brain-chip startup Neuralink live-streamed its first patient implanted with a chip playing online chess.

Noland Arbaugh, the 29-year-old patient who was paralyzed below the shoulder after a diving accident, was playing chess on his laptop and moving the cursor using the Neuralink device.

He had received an implant from the company in January and could control a computer mouse using his thoughts, Musk said last month.

‘The surgery was super easy,’ Arbaugh said in the video streamed on Musk’s social media platform X, referring to the implant procedure. ‘I literally was released from the hospital a day later. I have no cognitive impairments.'”
