[Question] Predictions for Neuralink’s Friday Announcement

Elon Musk just announced a “live webcast of a working Neuralink device” Friday at 3PM PT. In the same vein of last year’s Neuralink prediction post, feel free to specify what is likely/​unlikely to be revealed, giving your credence. We will likely do a “scoring of the predictions” after the event (like in last year’s post).
