Elon Musk Neuralink Startup – Stream Music 'Directly Into Your Brain'

Elon Musk Neuralink Startup – Stream Music 'Directly Into Your Brain' | New Music Industry | Scoop.it
Elon Musk's Neuralink startup will allow users to stream music directly into their brain. Musk will reveal more information about the technology next month.

I included this article to be the pinnacle in the idea of Technology in the Audio Production/Music business. It sounds like sci-fi, yet here it is. Elon Musk as well, no surprise there as he is certainly a futurist. I think it was well written and thought-provoking. 




Though not recognized for any journalism awards or accolades, the credibility of this source seems viable to me using the evaluation guide. I would say this is a great resource for music-related news. 
Robert Andrade's curator insight, July 26, 8:12 PM
I think streaming music directly into your brain would be a hard thing to accept. I’m not saying it will never happen, but it’s definitely something to get used to. Honestly I’m not sure if this would help the music industry. It might raise the amount consumed but it just might make another difficult issue to be resolved when it comes to the streaming numbers and how to correctly pay the artists. The source seams very trust worthy. There’s many direct quotes and the writer of the articles is names and was their accusation is. It doesn’t take as side at all and just states facts and quotes from Musk himself. Id say that this might be something that music industry people would get good facts from but i guess it just depends on the person. Some people would just disregard this and some might see this as something to keep an eye on for the future.
