How Much Will Neuralink Cost? (Latest Update)

How Expensive Could Neuralink be? Cost Calculation


If you already know the fantastic capabilities of the Neuralink device and want to have your hands on the futuristic neural lace technology by Elon Musk, Your first question would be what is the price of this brain implant. 


Cost of Neuralink Explained


Today we are here to answer the same question, how much will the Neuralink cost by explaining with evidence from the Neuralink Demonstration, Presentation, Elon Musk's Answers, etc, and give it to you.

If you are here just for the answer about the cost of the Neuralink, the Cost of Neuralink is a Few Thousand US Dollars After Large Scale Production with Surgery Included. However, if you want to dig deeper and know why and if it will be worth it, continue reading!

What Is The Evidence for Cost Of Neuralink?

On the 28th August 2020, Neuralink demonstration answered a QNA with the same question. This is where Elon Musk gave a clear expectation for the price of Neuralink.

The first Neuralink will be quite expensive but in the future, we want to make it available for everyone so it will be around a few thousand dollars including surgery

 

So I'm expecting it to be around 5,000 dollars. That brings us to the next question.

What Makes It Expensive?

There are many reasons that can make Neuralink expensive. However, it is expected to drop by Elon Musk himself.

Now let's understand the price factors...

1. Only Company In Neural lace  

The brain and computer interface using thin meshes are called neural lace. Right now, the Neuralink company is the only one that has made progress this far and has enough people caring about it.

This means no competition for quite some time, so this can be a major reason for the price to not drop rapidly.


2. Systems of Neuralink are Custom


Neuralink Price Factors

In the QNA session, the Neuralink team revealed that the software and many parts they are building are built from scratch that increases production cost for them.

However, after they are able to set up large scale manufacturing of the Neuralink components like smartphones this should be out of the price factor.

3. High Demand for Neuralink

We already know that the neuralink product is something that can change the world if it continues the same way. When the neuralink product is released for the public in 5 - 10 years, everyone will want to get their hands on it.

There are of course many other concerns that are debatable topics, but whatever happens, there will be more than enough people who want to try it ASAP.

If everyone gets a neuralink, the price is likely to go down. Anyways, for now, the demand will increase the cost.

4. Added Capabilities 

Ultra Violet vision in Neuralink

In the QNA session of the live demonstration, Elon Musk and the team revealed that they would like to add new capabilities like ultraviolet vision and so on to the neuralink.

Quite obviously these modules which can give superhuman capabilities cost a bit.

There might be different options, but that's a whole different topic to discuss. If you would like us to make concept arts and talk about the different possible versions of neuralink just drop us a message on Instagram or Twitter!

Is Neuralink a Worthy Purchase?

The answer to this is, quite obvious. However, let's understand why it is worth it.

This is a totally new piece of tech that has a lot of capabilities that can increase your productivity and increase the intensity of the digital world by 10 times! 
If the product is developed in a safe and secure way, this is revolutionary and that's the obvious reason it's worth it.

Fortunately, the company's vision is to change how things work and are on board with AI instead of just making profits. So let's see where the future takes us!
