Scannable Gravestones Bring Dead to Life


Seattle-based company Quiring Monuments has begun to create burial markers and gravestones that include QR codes - digital barcodes that, when scanned by a smartphone, bring up information, stories and even pictures of the deceased. Dave Quiring, head of Quiring Monuments, hopes to have QR codes affixed to every grave, so that "you could make a tour through [the cemetery] and it would be more than just a bunch of white monuments." He says, "It would be distinct lives of people who really deserve to have their story told." [NPR]
