Take Your Home Movies To The Grave

BURLINGAME, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One eccentric entrepreneur is hoping to knock ’em dead with his latest invention – literally.

Robert Barrows is the creator of the “Video Enhanced Gravemarker,” a video screen that can be embedded into graveyard headstones, turning tombstones into makeshift movie theaters.

Barrows got the idea from his experience with television commercials as well his side gig as a sculptor, and argues it’ll make the cemetery a “fascinating place to visit.”

His long term plan is to have people record video obituaries prior to their death, which relatives and loved ones will be able to view at – and on – the grave.

He says, “The videos can let the deceased make amends by saying the things they never could when they were alive.”

But there’s more to this plot.

Barrows says the videos can be shown immediately, or held until the spouse dies, “just in case you were having an affair with the next door neighbor.”
