Who is your idea designed for and how does it reimagine the end-of-life experience?

More and more people and family are living in the city, and land cost in city is not cheap. And other family member might have be living far away from their original family. Idea here it to create this virtual cemetery such that (visiting) cemetery is not limited by space nor where you are nor anything physical, while the relationship / family history remain visible/ linked. Also the part of the cost /"trouble" on picking a place to bury the body and the maintenance cost can be reduced.

What skills, input or guidance from the OpenIDEO community would be most helpful in building out or refining your idea?

1. Any key research data on virtual world? 2. Or similarity from virtual game..etc. could be drawn on solving something similar to this? e.g. space / location..etc.

Tell us about your work experience:

I worked at the R&D and Engineering department of a fast-moving consumer good company in China. During my free time, I volunteer regularly at local NGO/ communities, e.g. providing remote lesson to kids in poor village, giving drawing lesson...etc.
