Company Plans Video-Playing Tombstones

I was a bit skeptical at first, but it seems like an interesting idea, as long as they don't have infomercials. See the link for a video of the newscast.

"Joe Joachim, who says he wants to be the Walt Disney of the funeral business, plans to show the Vidstone this year at the annual funeral directors convention.

'What we're trying to do is create the ultimate funeral experience,' Joachim said. 'Funeral directors are realizing it's an important service we can offer, and and we're happy to offer it.'

The solar-powered Vidstone will play a video of the person's life at the touch of a button.

It will not have speakers but a jack to plug in headphones at cemeteries.

Some cemeteries are open to the Vidstone but others said it could offend people.

'It could be offensive to some. I don't think it's appropriate or it's been tried enough on the grounds.' Mt. Elliott Cemetery Association spokesman Michael Chilcote said."
