Having a tombstone that sports some fancy electronics certainly isn’t a new idea, but that hasn’t stopped the Phoenix-based company, Objecs, to take another crack at it. The company has come up with the Memorial RosettaStone Tablet, allowing visitors to the cemetery to access text and images by merely touching their cell phone to the headstone. The Memorial RosettaStone Tablet sports a microchip inside, and uses NFC (near-field communication) to stream personal information such as photos and even a pre-recorded message from the deceased. It only costs $225, and considering that by the time you need to use it, you won’t need the money anymore, it can’t be considered expensive, right? Do you think that you’re going to “prepare for the future” with one of these?
