High-Tech Japanese Graves Make Mourning Your Loved Ones Easy!

Burial plot prices are skyrocketing in Japanese cities, so one company built a facility that uses RFID technology to help store the dead. At Nichiryoku, mourners visit a “prayer area” where they swipe RFID cards to have the cremated remains of their loved one are lifted up from an underground storage vault.

CScout Japan has some excellent videos of the RFID burial plots in action. My favorite is the Nichiryoku commercial where a woman tells the ghost of her dead father that visiting him is “no problem” because the automated cemetery is so �close to the train station.� This sounds like a great way to say Sayonara to gadget lovers who are looking a futuristic funeral.
