CAMBRIDGE, MA (WHDH/CNN) – One group is working on a concept that would let loved ones virtually interact with you after you die.
From an old school chalkboard comes a futuristic idea – using technology to become immortal.
"You give life to an avatar and it replicates everything it learns from digital trial," said developer Nicholas Lee.
The technology is called eterni.me, and it's a concept developed by eight developers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's entrepreneurial boot camp.
The idea is a program would take all of your digital information from places like Facebook and Twitter and with your help, generate a virtual you for your family once you die.
These forward thinking entrepreneurs imagine a future where you can get advice from your great-great grandmother.
A thought, at first glance, that could be considered creepy or crazy but the professor of the course believes that may be the point.
"Crazy ideas are often the best ones that could change the world," said professor Bill Aulet of the MIT Sloan School of Management.
The website launched on Wednesday with 7,000 people visiting in the first three hours. Five hundred signed up for early invites.
