Even if it was real, it's just an ugly toy until it has a brain stem compatible with our own.
Predictably, Elon Musk is pumping money into this, $100m, trying to get that neural interface up and running for the AI-augmented ubermensch (they call it "transhuman", which must elicit a few crude jokes now and then). Neuralink were due to be starting human tests this year. Musk says he got the idea from the sci-fi works of Are Iain M. Banks, RIP.
(Also, if I could plug my brain into anything, it wouldn't be that fucking thing.)
