Virtual Memorial Service Hall (網上靈堂)
Virtual graveyard is indeed an ingenious way to tackle lack of burial sites issues!
I am not sure who first developed
the virtual memorial service hall, but the Japanese have already offered
the virtual memorial service hall years ago and it is currently progressing up to such a stage
that even flowers and all other funeral necessities can be selected by clicking
of a mouse.
Later, I also learnt that
there is even a virtual graveyard in the development. Only the particulars of
the deceased and the family members are required, and upon the successful completion
of the registration process (with a fee); the web page will auto design the
tomb stone and provide the relatives with a password. So wherever and whenever
a person is, and provided he or she has a computer in front of him/her; this
person can log in at his/her convenience. My first thought is that such service
will benefit those who have migrated overseas or have the disability to travel.
This is indeed an emerging market to tackle.
Just fairly recently, I
have also heard that this type of virtual memorial service hall appeared in one
of the Hong Kong web page, and this web page has also extended to the pets as
well. Whatever the subject is: a deceased person, a pet or even inanimate
object all are welcome. My hat is indeed off to the creativity of these Hong
Kong folks really.
Perhaps one day such
virtual services will also appeared in Southeast Asia regions; on second
thought perhaps some ingenious business minded people have already done that
and I have been losing touch with the ever changing techno world? And how do
you like it: You can do the conjuration on-line and choose whatever entity to
appear? Or may be create the virtual form of your enemy and ‘destroy’ it virtually
with the click of a mouse? If all of the above have come true; it will be my
turn to change MagicSEA into “Virtual Machine MagicSEA” J!
