Talking Tombstones: Would You Want To Talk From Your Grave?

Yes, I would love to have that installed on my tombstone. It's a great way to communicate to other generations!
Talking tombstones? No thanks, that is a little too creepy for me.

Have ever wished that you could speak from beyond the grave? Well, now you can and it doesn't have to involve psychic powers, or some undead voodoo. A company has invented the high-tech talking tombstone, which contains a microchip that stores 1,000 words and a picture. The technology, called RosettaStones, enables text and media to be beamed to nearby cellphones.

A visitor would only need their cellphone to communicate with the dead. Theoretically, the visitor would be able to hear their loved one through the phone as well.

Would you want to talk from the grave to future generations? Or is this just a creepy application of technology?

    Not quite sure..Would the tombstone B in my voice..or some other guy my family doesnt
    even know ? But it might B kinda fun to have a talking tombstone & mess with your sur-viving relatives..like I might have my tombstone say.."Hey, get off me !", or "I dont like
    pansies, posies or mums..Do you have any dalias, lillies or tulips..I like those much bet-ter"..or "Ok..jokes over..You guys can let me out now !"..or "Let me out ! Its getting a little stuffy in here !"..or how about "Did somebody die or somethin?..What kind of party is this ?!"..Maybe Id put a few of my favorite sports calls/memories on it..Like the 'May Day OT Goal' vs the Bruins in game 7 of the '93 NHL playoffs..Brieres goal or Camp-bells crushing hit on Umburger vs Flyers in game 1 in 05..The Steve Dykstra/Bobby Nystrom fight call or the Sabres vs Nordiques fight calls in the early 80s..Or when Talley
    scored an INT TD vs Raiders in AFC Champship Game in 90..or Kristies OT FG vs Oil-ers in '93 NFL playoffs..or Sam Adams INT TD vs Pats on opening day..Maybe I'll put in a famous movie line from one of my favorite films..like Gladiator,Dark Knight,Animal House, Cinderella Man, The Shawshank Redemption, Jaws, Star Wars, Raiders Of The Lost Ark, 12 Angry Men, On The Waterfront, American Pie 1,2,3,..Anchorman,The 40

    Just imagine having it set up to say "AAH get off me, ow!" when it senses some one standing on your grave. It would scare the heck out of people while teaching the m to stay off graves.

    Don't you think cemeteries will become obsolete? I mean the more the population grows won't we be turning to cremation? So maybe possible talking urns? Just take movies now using flipcams and store to backup either in hardware or at an internet site.

    These things are as stupid as the Standing Lincoln at Disneyland. Since the deceased are probably already reincarnated and sucking on their new mother's tit, this all is a waste of time. The dead should be burned and buried, not flaunted over like a new car. Death doesn't creep me out, because I know what happens: The spirit moves on, reattaches to a brand new unborn body. Then the baby is born, and goes on with life, often with no recollection of the past life.

    are stupid, a waste of time ect... i mean, seriously they make a microchip to put on tombstones yet they dont bother making or try to make an invention that can help teach and educate the mentaly disabled kids that need help with their education... let the dead rest in peace, they should leave the dead alone! it's like sticking a microchip n their dead body in a way.

    Let the dead bury the dead. Means if your saved as a Christian your in the glory of GOD. Let the none believer or those that deny CHRIST worry about what goes on from the cold grave.
