There are times when you just don’t feel like going out or skipping a house party you’ve been invited to, so what do can you do??
Don’t fret because a bunch of researchers from Japan have now come up with a unique invention that they believe is the solution. Introducing “Human Uber,” it provides a way for you to attend events using someone else’s body. Inventor, Jin Rekimoto of Sony says “it’s surprisingly natural.” Basically, the uber person wears a motorbike helmet with an iPad stuck on the front. On the iPad screen, you’ll be able to stream your facecam, essentially giving you a walking Facecam platform surrogate. Weird?? Maybe, but I’m quite curious to give this a go.
