An unusual new service called YouMe is being touted as the next generation of gaming, and a new way of sourcing help. The service will let users (“Yous”) control real people (“Mes”) in real time. Yous give instructions to the Mes via bluetooth headset or text message, and the Mes escapades are captured by video camera and streamed live.  Almost anything is game as far as requests, barring illegal or sexual activity. YouMe is in private beta, and should launch later this year.
