Elon Musk boasts his Neuralink brain chips ‘will 100% cure’ common illness

ELON Musk has claimed that he will cure a common and debilitating disease using computer chips hooked to people's BRAINS.

In a recent tweet, the billionaire said that his company Neuralink will fix tinnitus – a condition that causes ringing in the ears – by 2027.

Musk set up Neuralink in 2016 with the goal of creating "brain-machine interfaces" that connect humans and computers.

Early trials have implanted coin-sized devices into the heads of monkeys, allowing them to play video games using only their minds.

The company says the technology will one day help people with paralysis and other neurological conditions.
