I cannot decide if this is heartwarming, heartbreaking, scary, creepy, or all of these combined.
As a parent, I believe I can speak for all of us: there is no greater nightmare than the thought of losing a child-much less it actually happening. I don’t know what we would do. I don’t know if we could go on.
Now, what if you lost your child and then were told you could be reunited with him/her through virtual reality? Would you do it? A Korean documentary called “I Met You” aired a segment last week about a mother who was reunited with her dead daughter in just that manner.
Jang Ji-sung lost her 7-year-old daughter Nayeon to an unknown illness four years ago. It took 8 months, but a Korean broadcasting company produced the virtual reality experience. They recreated Nayeon’s face, body, and voice as closely as possible. And, although Jang Ji-sung couldn’t physically touch the virtual version of her daughter, she seemed to really cherish the experience.
