Virtual Reality Experience Sees Mother Reunite with Deceased Daughter

Virtual reality is helping people to cope with the grief of death. South-Korean broadcaster, MBC, recently aired a documentary that reunited a mother with her deceased daughter in VR. "Meeting You" recounts the story of a family's loss of their seven-year old daughter, Nayeon, who passed away from illness. Using a Vive headset and trackers with Noitom's Hi5 virtual reality gloves, the mother, Jang Ji-sung, was able to touch, play and talk with her daughter again. The little girl even assures her mother that she is no longer in pain. MBC worked on designing Nayeon's face, body, and voice to be as accurate as possible. As the mother and daughter interacted, Nayeon's father, brother and sister look on in tears, sharing in the grieving process. The family took part in the documentary to help others who may be dealing with a loss. Read more at Road to VR and Aju Business Daily.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
