Cremains of the Day: QR Coded Headstones

Alexis Madrigal of the Atlantic has an interesting article about the future of the afterlife: headstones with QR codes that launch websites or apps all about the decedent. It’s pointed out that it’s not an independent symbol, requiring a third-party device to decode, which may not be eternally usable or meaningful. Then again, many old, carved funerary symbols which used to connote clear messages, such as broken wheels and ears of corn, aren’t decipherable to most contemporary cemetery vistors, so Q-Rock on!
