QR Coded Tombstones Link to Loved Ones

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Cell Phones, Misc. Tech

QR Coded TombstoneIf you live in Japan and want to remember a loved one in a special way, the stone processing company Ishinokoe will install cell phone QR codes inside a lockable tombstone door. The family member can then link it to videos and images of the deceased on Websites. When visitors to the site see the code, they can access them, too. They can also view a greeting from the chief mourner, check out the guest book, and note on it that they were there using their cell phones. The cost of the QR code is about ¥200,000 (~$1,935.00.)

quite a nice invention.
maybe one day on my tombstone there will be something like that.

It seems good, but too depressing to think about. A nice stone will be good for me.

Quite nice invention i would say.

I don’t know about you guys, but I think it would be interesting to walk through a cemetery and not only read names and dates but be able to see pictures.  For some reason that kind of stuff fascinates me.

I think just a simple stone would be enough for me. Give me my love while I’m still kickin’.
Those wacky Japanese

wow… umm this seems a little over the top… even in death they are still crazy about technology!  Japan is definitely a “unique” country when it comes to tech stuff

aw, that was a nice idea of theirs
even though people may think its “over the top” *cough cough buckeyefanatic*
i support it!
