Electronic Joss Stick / Transforming traditional incense

Electronic Joss Stick
Electronic Joss Stick

In Taiwanese traditional religious ceremonies, people light the joss sticks at temples or home to pray for blessing. The air pollution is getting worse by burning lots of notes and joss sticks at ceremonies. Therefore, “Pray on line” appears. This new way of praying made traditional methods become a mere formality. However, we are looking forward to combine Joss sticks and technologies, not only to save traditional cultures but to protect the environment.
