Bring Your Loved Ones Back from the Dead With Oculus VR
Life is hard. We go through so much and we lose our loved ones along the way. Our whole life we strive to protect the ones close to us but the natural order can’t be stopped. There will be a day when we will be gone as well, and join our loved ones in another life.
However, is there a way we can be with our ones who passed away while we are still alive? Is there a way we can communicate? For those who believe in magic, psychic powers etc., there are plenty of ways. For who don’t, there aren’t any.
For such people, technology has brought a way to see their loved ones once again. A new VR project called Elysium is being worked on by Paranormal Games, details of which are limited but the idea is to create a character based on your friends and family in VR, who you can chat and communicate with.
The question is that how they will manage to capture someone’s likeness in the game. If I want my late grandfather to come back to life in VR, how will I do that? How similar the character be to the real life person?
The app will be shown at the Oculus VR Jam 2015, so we can expect more details from the event. The idea is brilliant and will make people feel emotions they haven’t felt in a while. However, this could also prove to be very discomforting for some who are having a hard time moving on after losing someone they loved.
