Description
"Their methods may differ, but Hodak’s end goal appears similar to Musk’s. Just like Neuralink, Science wants to begin using its technology to treat people with disabilities in need before eventually progressing the tech to a point where it could be used as an ability enhancer.

“We’re starting in very disabled patient populations with serious unmet needs,” Hodak said in an interview with Bloomberg. “But if you refine that technology five or six generations, you get to replace glasses and [virtual reality] goggles with just the tiny little implant in the eye.” "
