Cemeteries Going Digital

We are beginning to see the digitization of cemeteries. Personal Rosetta Stone is a company that sells a addition to headstones that connects mobile users in the cemetery to digital archives on the Web.

This connection between digital archives and headstones provides the missing link between the final physical remains of a human and a digital record of their life. It is a logical enhancement of the traditional cemetery experience and bereavement process. It also creates interesting possibilities for people researching their ancestors.

Expect to see more products that digitally enhance death in the coming years.
