Virtual reality Technology Reunites Mother With Her Late Child

Read Time:2 Min, 2 Sec

The question is not whether we can upload our brains onto a computer, but what will become of us when we do? Imagine a future in which your mind never dies or simply when you get to meet a late loved one. It is tempting to ignore these ideas as just another science-fiction trope. The documentary “I Met You” was publicized on South Korea’s MBC television on February 6, with the footage casting between the “real world” and the “virtual one”. Check it out for yourself below.

The documentary reveals the story of South Korean mother Jang Ji-sung, a mother of four who sat her deceased 7-year-old daughter Nayeon in 2016. Now Ji-sung has seen her daughter in heaven afresh through advanced VR technology. “Maybe it’s a real paradise,” Jang said of the reunion in VR, according to Aju Business Daily. “I met Nayeon, who called me with a smile, for a very short time, but it’s a very happy time. I think I’ve had the dream I’ve always wanted.”

The VR reunion is, as you might expect, extremely emotional! I think, along with many considerations, that appropriately going through the stages of grief are important. However, imagine seeing a dead parent or grandparent there in front of you cracking a joke! It definitely wouldn’t ever replace them, but it could help you cherish their memory. It could help you keep that memory of who they were accurate and fresh. Again, in a healthy way, a moderated way. This could also be a tool that could swallow someone in their grief. Another similar show is Amazon`s Upload TV Series but this time you are able to choose your own afterlife after untimely death.


In Netflix`s: Black Mirror, the situations are familiar but are pushed to the extreme because technology is its main character, it is also one of the most fascinating while highlighting the dark side of technology.



Now Ji-sung has seen her daughter in heaven again through advanced VR technology. At a basic level, virtual reality (VR) is the use of technology to digitally create an immersive and convincing audiovisual illusion of reality. It’s not to be confused with augmented reality (AR) that adds contextual digital information overtop to the real world. Continue Reading.
