They’re often used in Hollywood, and are a recurring and possibly well-worn hallmark of the Mission Impossible films.

But realistic silicone face masks are now under the spotlight in China in the wake of recent incidents involving criminals wearing them, sparking calls for tighter oversight amid fears they could become the modus operandi for lawbreakers, especially considering how easily accessible they are.

So were at Mission Impossible level face masks, robots that can parkour, and LLMs being close to what we would call "AI"

Sounds like Blade Runner soon

I'm sorry ma'am, but we must cut your face to make sure your face is real.

....now with all of us together in this summit and with the proper summit scars counted and our new cuts made, let us discuss the new world order.

... certainly sir, I can make those changes to your account, but first I will need for you to please stretch your nose forward by exactly 3mm. No I don't know how much that is in Texas units. Look, just pull it for us so we can move on. I assume you also brought 3 pieces of ID right?

CIA actually has had these for decades now, though I don't know if they still employ them considering in person espionage is much rarer these days.
