Get Your Own Hitech Grave with Interactive Barcode
Japanese tombstone maker, Ishinokoe has developed a new tombstone that will contain a scanable bar-code behind a lockable door on the tombstones, allowing family members and friends to scan them with their mobile phones.
This is a modern interpretation from the ancient Egypt belief in providing Pharaohs with their treasure for the trip in to afterlife.
The thombstones will be equipped with a barcode, which people can read with their mobile phone and then _interact_ with their beloved in scrapbook alike style, posting or viewing memories, photos from the past.
I must admit it all sounds very vague, to me at least, and possibly even boring, but imagine having a grave with a barcode and future possible usages!
I so would let people challenge my best lap times in Race Driver: Grid. They could even see how my ghost leaves them behind.
Wicked, finally thought of a cool use for ghost lap times!
