||Tombstones enter the digital age
Amsterdam - A Dutch engineer has invented a digital gravestone with an liquid crystal display screen showing images and films.
The tombstone has an infrared sense which means that when anybody stands in front of the grave, the LCD monitor is actived.
The screen lights up with messages from the person who has passed away, along with videos and pictures, the newspaper De Morgen reports.
The idea came to 65-year-old Henk Rozema from Zwolle after he made a DVD of his own life to show guests at his birthday party.
Many of his friends asked for copies of the DVD, which is when Rozema realised he could be on to something and decided to invent his digital tombstone.
Said Rozema: "I'm an engineer and I thought that must be possible. We are not the Flintstones. This is the digital age!" - Ananova.com
