QR Gravestone

Where else but in Japan would they come up with the idea of putting a QR code on a gravestone.

Seems kinda tacky to be honest.

But when you stop and think about it for a minute it's actually kinda cool.

Just imagine if they'd had this technology years ago.

You'd be able to experience and learn so much about the person buried in a grave.

As opposed to the traditional gravestone where all you have to go on is just a handful of info but nothing truly personal about the person.

Of course like most modern technology the QR code will probably be old hat within five years or so.

Still a nice idea though.
