'Living Headstone' Touted as Living Memorial

Ad Feedback

Gravestones are typically pretty simple -- a name, a date, and an epitaph. However, one Seattle company wants to bring the concept of gravestones and memorials into the 21st century.

Quiring Monuments has created what they call the Living Headstone, which contains a barcode.

When people visit a grave, they can scan the headstone's code with a smartphone. The phone will then pull up a website, allowing people to visit their loved ones pages on the Internet.

"We can scan the barcode that quickly. And then open the browser and there is my dad's page," said one user.

"The ability to connect is going to make this whole experience not only more meaning full, but it's going to help people move through grief," said a company spokesman.

The Living Headstone only costs about $150 more than a typical headstone.
