Bill Gates & Jeff Bezos Back Mind Control Research Company

A US Brain implant startup backed by Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates is testing mind-controlled computing on humans.

Synchron is part of an emerging crop of companies testing technology in the brain-computer interface industry which is designed to help people with paralysis.

Implanted through the blood vessels, the Synchron Switch allows patients to operate technology using only their minds.

At the end of last year, the company announced a $75 million funding round, with participation from the investment firms of Gates and Bezos.

CNBC reports: Founded in 2012, Synchron is part of the burgeoning brain-computer interface, or BCI, industry. A BCI is a system that deciphers brain signals and translates them into commands for external technologies. Perhaps the best-known name in the space is Neuralink, thanks to the high profile of founder Elon Musk, who is also the CEO of Tesla, SpaceX and Twitter.

But Musk isn’t the only tech billionaire wagering on the eventual transition of BCI from radical science experiment to flourishing medical business. In December, Synchron announced a $75 million financing round that included funding from the investment firms of Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.

In August 2020, the Food and Drug Administration granted Synchron the Breakthrough Device designation, which is for medical devices that have the potential to provide improved treatment for debilitating or life-threatening conditions. The following year, Synchron became the first company to receive an Investigational Device Exemption from the FDA to conduct trials of a permanently implantable BCI in human patients.

Synchron is enrolling patients in an early feasibility trial, which aims to show that the technology is safe to put in humans. Six patients will be implanted with Synchron’s BCI during the study, and Chief Commercial Officer Kurt Haggstrom said the company is currently about halfway through.

The company has no revenue yet, and a spokesperson said Synchron isn’t commenting on how much the procedure will eventually cost.

While many competitors have to implant their BCIs through open-brain surgery, Synchron relies on a less invasive approach that builds on decades of existing endovascular techniques, the company said.

  4. That’s ironic. These are the two guys on the planet who’s minds are in the most need of control

  5. HHMI&slick brain labs have 100,000s of patents on brain interfacements and overalls HHMI generates 1trillion every ten years since howard was grabbed and snuffed VIA mexico so they are way way late to the game as it was over over 40 years ago go.Whereas synratronical sub lime mind FN of merika is in it`s GREEN days.Fully synratronical 3D plus wireless interfacements have been used for over 30 years.You don`t have to IMPLANT any devices as the alphawave is over powered by most any broadcast system in use today.Plasmid spin robots and marfe turus? you know? you are a shootin star!! don`t you know?

  6. POD casters on image projectional smart phones and sublime sound can head FN most anyones and the FCC don`t give a ratty tatty.TRICKLE DOWN pay pal/SS only the most advanced advance those with the best apps and softwear and PDA&gear.The WAR is for your HEAD and if they get thier BS bull ring in your nose you are a slave all wirelessly and sound mic on worldwide satellite broadcsating casting since the summer game in japan in 1964 all howard hughes until the fall of 64 all govermental takeover for CBS!!!&^^^BIG BRO-NO!
