It is extendable to social responsibility level to promotion charity digitalization. Moreover, the mobility and interaction between people are limited due to the pandemic in recent years, especially for older and frail people, even those with difficulty in ambulation. Therefore, it is a great opportunity to introduce a brand new way to travel around via live streaming programme and virtual tour, which I believe that the senior citizens will be more encouraged to face the new normal and to experience new things so as to fulfill their mental health from the convenience of applying technology.”
