Memorializing Your Ancestors...High Tech

Timeless Footsteps is a company that is bringing high tech to funeral memorials...it was just a matter of time, afterall.

The device is call a Footprint and it works like this: Footprints from Timeless Footsteps are attractive business card-sized placards you affix to a headstone or memorial. The Footprint includes a code that links visitors to the memorial with your family member's life story and photos on a beautifully designed web page. You can link with a smart phone, a net book, or any other internet-enabled device.

You can get more information and see an example of a memorial webpage at http://www.timelessfootsteps.com/

I think this is a great idea. I've been wondering when someone would come up with a high tech gravestone or memorial marker.

I hope more concepts are developed along this line (e.g. a version which does not require the cemetery visitor to carry a camera phone). Come to think of it, my mother's marker is an engraved boulder; I don't think their adhesive placard would stick!
