Human Microphone

Today I was alerted to the term “human microphone” which at first glance made me think of “human centipede.” Upon closer investigation a human microphone is when people shout what you’ve said thus creating an artificial echo. Two things. 1) I CAN’T BELIEVE THERE IS A TERM FOR THAT! And! That the term has a wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_microphone. 2) This is a thing? I thought modern technology had already solved this grave problem.
