Japan’s Chameleon Mask lets users attend events and gatherings without actually being present.
If you never want to leave the house again, you can now strap a tablet to a surrogate’s head and have them trot around the house pretending to be you. The Chameleon Mask from Japan is being described as a Human Uber as it involves a stranger taking you to places in a vehicle with legs. Yup, this is an actual thing.
The tablet has a built-in speaker and the user can let the surrogate know movements and directions, so there’s no need to feel guilty about staying indoors. Developers of the Chameleon Mask suggest finding someone with a similar body shape to you. Hopefully then you can fool your friends into thinking you’re there… the tablet on a complete stranger’s face may give it away though.
