Do you remember that time when people with a lot of money decided to create a theme park with dinosaurs and it ended very badly? Luckily that was just a movie, although now there are interesting statements from one of the founders of the Neuralink company, Max Hodak, who said that they could build a Jurassic park if they wanted.
It was in a tweet from his personal account, where the executive spoke about this possibility of his company, here you can see it:
we could probably build jurassic park if we wanted to. wouldn’t be genetically authentic dinosaurs but 🤷♂️. maybe 15 years of breeding + engineering to get super exotic novel species

Being clear, he is not saying that they will make a dinosaur park, but that his company has enough technological possibilities to create genetically modified species, although of course, his statement is very tempting and makes it clear that such a scenario is possible. .
WHAT DOES NEURALINK CORPORATION DO?
It is worth mentioning that the American neurotechnology company, owned by Elon Musk, is focused on creating implantable brain-machine interfaces.
To give you a clear example of what the company does, it was Elon Musk himself who spoke about a test with a monkey that has a wireless implant in the skull, and with which they hope to get the animal to play mind pong with another implanted monkey.
Of course, after those statements, concerns arose about possible animal abuse in these experiments, however, the businessman mentioned that it is not possible to see where the implant is and that the monkey is a happy animal.
As you can see, there are projects carried out by different entrepreneurs that remain controversial, although we hope that their tests can bring something useful and beneficial to new generations.
Do you think a real Jurassic park is possible? Let us know in the comments.
