The “Human Uber” could soon hit the gig economy in a big way. And though that sounds like a service where strangers give strangers piggyback rides, rest assured, the reality is somehow much stranger.
ChameleonMask hopes to provide people with human surrogates who would interact with the real world on the customer’s behalf, achieving something known as telepresence. To do this, each surrogate would wear a screen on their head that displays the customer’s face and plays the customer’s voice. The service would theoretically allow you to attend parties and other social functions from the comfort of your bed, all while you give directions to your surrogate – even down to what they wear.
