Linking the human brain with a computer makes good science fiction and has inspired ventures such as Elon Musk’s Neuralink, which aims to let you control devices with electronics implanted in your brain. Other less adventurous, and invasive, trials have outfitted subjects with skullcaps studded with electrodes.
Geothermal energy’s champions point to enormous amounts of energy locked in hot rocks under the ground: we drill down, pipe hot water down into the rocks to make steam, and collect the steam to spin turbines and generate electricity.
