Once again Japan has proved its credential to deliver exceptional offering. With time, you must have realized that the death ceremony is inviting good amount of attention, thereby giving a last opportunity to do the needful or pay tribute for the deceased. While sending them off in branded coffins that define their personality is not a passe’, here we have another technology-driven way that does justice to the loved ones of the deceased by installing a multimedia tombstone to their name.
Now what does this multimedia feature means? A Japan-based company called Ishinokoe has executed QR technology to furnish gravestones with cell phone accessible hyperlinks that directs visitors to a website allowing them instant view of images, words and videos from the deceased person’s life.
The QR code allows guests to view a salutation from the deceased person’s “principal mourner” together with any messages left in the grave’s guestbook. Not, I am wondering about the possibility of training the morticians about spam blocking techniques and IT support. Equally eye-watching is the news of booking a space trip for the deceased.
