Mother ‘reunites’ with dead daughter using virtual reality technology
Here you can watch an emotional clip where a mother in South Korea reunites with her deceased daughter in a VR experience. The deceased daughter has been recreated in the VR experience as a 3D model that can both move and interact with the mother.
The mother is provided with a VR headset as well as touch-sensitive VR gloves that will give her some kind of feeling of touching something as she extends her hands towards the 3D modeled daughter in the VR experience.
We’ve seen this in sci fi movies before, but now the technology seems to be reasonably ready to be put to use properly. This will certainly be seen as the everyday food of the future but for the moment, I get some discomfort when I watch it.
Would you like to meet your dead relatives, friends or pets in VR experiences?
