How might we reconnect with our ancestor through I.O.T. ( Internet of Things)?
In modern society, the most direct way of mourning the deceased is to conduct a series of activities, according to religious and social customs, on a special date and at a significant location. For example, several times during the year in China citizens sweep the tombs of their loved ones.
