Neuralink Shares Cryptic Teaser for November 30 ‘Show and Tell’ Event
Elon Musk’s brain implant company Neuralink recently shared a cryptic teaser for its upcoming “Show and Tell” event, which is scheduled for 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET on Wednesday, November 30.
The 14-second video posted by the neurotechnology startup on Twitter served as an invitation to the event, depicting the phrase “please join us for show and tell” being typed on a black background.

The company is working on computer-brain interfaces that will allow people to control computers with their minds. Co-founded by Musk in 2016, Neuralink hopes its solutions will help people with Alzheimer’s, paralysis, amputations, and other debilitating conditions.
Neuralink is expected to present some of its progress and the advancements it has made so far at the Show and Tell event. Given the nature of the teaser, many social media users theorized if the text was actually typed using a computer-brain communications device developed by Neuralink.
After all, another of Musk’s companies did something similar earlier this year. Prior to its AI Day 2022 event, Tesla tweeted out a video of two robotic hands forming a heart. These were later confirmed to be the actual working hands of Optimus, the autonomous humanoid robot Tesla unveiled at the event.

Could the video be an actual demo of someone using one of Neuralink’s brain-machine interface devices to type out the message? We’ll have to wait until next week to find out, but let us know what you think in the comments below.
