If you don't want to get out of bed but still need to get something done, you can hire a "human Uber" surrogate with an iPad strapped to their face ready to do your bidding.

Basically, it would work like this: Say your friend needs help moving, but you don't want to go lug boxes around all day. Just hire someone to do the moving for you while you beam your face onto a ChameleonMask from the comfort of your bed and offer words of encouragement. Or maybe your son has a baseball game that you can't quite make? Someone in a ChameleonMask will go sit in the stands so you can cheer him on remotely. ChameleonMask recommends getting a surrogate who has a similar body type. Sounds great, right?
