Building a small 5D movie theater to simulate different scenarios of death. It helps people to experience death realistically. 5D movie combines a variety of high-tech and maximize the realistic of simulated scenarios to let viewer feeling. It helps audience to achieve the sense of reality from the auditory, visual, and tactile, as exits in the film scenarios. People feel changes with video content, such as feeling hot flame; and the waves will be wet clothes. Then, people also can experience falling, vibration, wind, rain and other new real feeling.

We can assume different forms of death or scene through real examples (including accidental death and natural death). These scenes will go further with daily life, and make scenario more realistic. The authentic experience can freely choose which scenario they want to go. For each scenario, we need do a brief description, which is helpful of reducing fear of death. They will have themselves involved into the scenarios quickly. This way can help people know what surround us.

What early, lightweight experiment might you try out in your own community to find out if the idea will meet your expectations?

Discuss with other people, to know how they think about this way.

Hi Yue, thanks for the contribution! What an interesting idea. I remember my first time in a 4/5D cinema at OceanPark when I was 8. It was definitely an experience and I remember it vividly. It was an Indiana jones-esque movie, but it has left an imprint on me. I remember the water, the smell, the sound, the movements, the excitement, and the fear. I don't think it's traumatized me at all, but a lot of good and bad things have stuck with me and I am definitely and less afraid.

Thanks! Very helpful! I had a same experience.

Awesome (:
Have you thought about how this might be prototyped and tested out? It's important to get user feedback early on even if it's a very primitive "test-drive".

Umm,  I think it just arouse and guide people to think and feel death by watch a short video. Prepare different experimental chamber about different scenario, one room may just for or five seats. And in the experimental room, we can  install monitor to remember their expression and behavior on experimental process. Then, when they finish watching, we can ask some belief question of their feeling. After, finding psychologist or professional person to help them analysis and give advice.
