According to the official information, the research needs $5 billion in total and it is going to carry the name of Zuckerberg and his wife.

One of the most unusual branches of research is the development of the ‘brain-machine’ – a gadget that is going to turn thoughts into commands. It is a wireless brain implant that can record, stimulate, track and run all of movements of the body in real time.

Right now the implant is being tested with the apes and according to the scientists it is going to help control epilepsy and Parkinson’s.

The gadget received a name Cortera.
