According to CNN Business, Uber is currently developing new technology that will force people into adjusting to the new safety rules caused by the coronavirus. These new rules will be that both drivers and passengers will be required to be wearing face masks while catching an Uber.

At the moment, its unclear what kind of technology will be used to make sure both passengers and drivers are wearing face masks, but it can be assumed that it will be some sort of real-time face checking software. Uber has already been supplying face masks and disinfectants to its drivers, but this new policy could be the driving force into redeveloping a safe amount of trust between passengers and drivers.

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
