E-Tomb Preserves Your Social Networking Persona Forever

Designed by Huang Jianbo, Zhao Ting, Wang Yushan, Ran Xiangfei and Mo Ran, E-TOMB is basically, I guess, a tombstone-shaped giant external hard drive.

A tombstone for the internet-age, it stores all a dead person’s social presences – Facebook, Twitter, blogs, photos, videos, etc., in one easy to access space. A bluetooth-like device – the cross on the front of the tombstone – transmits and makes available this data. When the departed’s relatives visit the stone, they can interact with their now defunct internet presences via mobile. It’s powered by a solar panel on top.

Seems very bleak. TC mark

    IMAGINE IF ONE OF THIS “E-TOMBS” “GLITCHES” AND DEVELOPS A PERSONALITY OUT OF THE “SPRAWL OF INFORMATION” STORED IN IT AND BECOMES SOMETHING LIKE A “SEELE MONOLITH”…

    Seams the opposite of bleak to me. It would be great if all tombstones were like this and you could walk around a cemetery and learn about all the people buried there.
