Barcodes On Headstones
Barcodes on headstones? Yup! A funeral company in the southern English town of Poole is offering to add quick response (QR) codes to headstones!
Scanning the barcodes with a smartphone will link users to online memorials illustrated with pictures, videos and tributes from family and friends.
These barcodes will also enable cemetery visitors to learn a lot more about the person buried. A traditional headstone might show age, date of birth and death date, and maybe a quote. "It's about keeping people's memories alive in different ways," said managing director
