NANY 2013 Pledge: VH website - CANCELED
« on: October 22, 2012, 10:37:12 AM »
Top secret experimental strange web site project idea.
Details to be revealed later..

This has been canceled for NANY 2013, probably never to be implemented.

The strange idea I had was to create a site where you could create a very very simple online virtual version of a deceased pet or friend, configure the kinds of activities they liked to spend their time doing, and then have the program/website be a place where this virtual version of them could be happy doing the things they liked doing.

So for example if you had a cat companion for 15 years who passed away, you could create a kind of virtual heaven for them, describe the places they liked to sleep, the toys they loved, the food they loved, etc.,  and then their virtual version could spend it's days doing those things and you could check in on them every once and a while to see how they were doing and leave them gifts, etc.  no graphics just simple text updates.

If you created it for a human who passed on you could send them books to read, etc.

Anyway, some people send the idea was possibly psychologically damaging, as it might impede the healing/grieving process.  I don't know.. Seemed like an interesting enough idea to try to implement, and that it might be a nice tribute to lost ones.

I might still implement it someday.

Well hell, I can borrow that wording!
I too, pledge a top secret experimental strange project idea!

Details may never be revealed. It will barely even be functional! However I promise it will do something other than sit there!

They are currently considering embodying facets of Amazon and PayPal excellent CRIS into the yet-to-be-designed product.

P.S. Mouser please create an area for NANY rejects, jokes and otherwise, so I and other hapless wannabe-devs don't taint the fine institution of NANY! (Basement?)

My bet is on Virtual-something. It's the hot new use for V.

I have a Holden Commodore - not a VH though. Is a VTK, I think. It has quite a lot of onboard computerisation, so maybe this project is about hacking onboard computerised control systems.    :tellme:
