FURTHER SHOWING THE LAZINESS OF HUMANS, ENTER HUMAN UBER 

Japanese researcher Jun Rekimoto presented his new tech, called ChameleonMask, at MIT Tech Review's EmTech this week, Select All reports. ChameleonMask has apparently been described as a "Human Uber," but it's really closer to a mobile FaceTime.  The technology uses a real human surrogate who walks around in the world with an iPad strapped to their face and googles that allow them to see.  You can stay at home in the comfort of your own home, while your face is projects on the iPad screen.  You can take your human Uber to pick up items, make deliveries,  or go to work as you with your face.

Again, Amazon isn’t immediately turning over the data citing customer privacy and will only turn over the data with a strict legal request. A New Hampshire judge has stated that the state suspects that Alexa may have been listening at the time of the murders.
