Vidstone: the video-playing tombstone



Oddly enough, there's actually already some precedent for this idea to combine tombstones with… multimedia. Entrepreneur Joe Joachim, billing himself as the "Walt Disney of the funeral business" (we guess that has a ring to it… maybe), is set to unveil his company's Vidstone video-playing tombstone that will play a video of a person's life at the touch of a button. The unit will be solar-powered and in lieu of speakers will have a headphone jack for plugging in to the, um, deceased's audio feed. Some cemeteries are totally not down, though, saying the Vidstone could possibly offend people. We guess that depends on what's in the video.
