The Future of Death Tech
Social distancing and environmentally friendly technologies make for better coping methods.
The death of a loved one can be the most traumatic experience in someone’s life.
In recent months, because so many people have lost friends and family members due to Covid-19 pandemic, there has been significant focus on how we deal with our emotional needs as well as physical separation during this difficult time ahead for us all grieving process. This led some startups creating technology that allows mourners use innovative solutions like text messaging apps or flowers delivered straight from farm fields rather than purchasing them locally causing less pollution while saving money too.
Technology is an important part of our lives, but the feeling we get from physical connection can’t be replaced. Virtual funerals allow mourners to keep in contact with those most important during a global crisis by using technology as if they were there for you personally instead of just sending them some text message on paper or emailing their family member remotely.
Mourners might find themselves at home alone when one loved one dies unexpectedly because he/she lived far away from where all members work together professionally- sometimes this means that even though people have close relationships outside work settings, once inside these walls it becomes difficult.
How Technology Helps The Mourners
One such company is Detroit-based app Everdays, which empowers people to take control of their end-of life planning long before they pass by buying a funeral in advance within minutes. The process can be stressful and expensive for those who are already emotionally heavy due time constraints as well as financial needs during this difficult period that follows someone’s death from cancer or other illnesses like Alzheimer’s disease. With three different packages available at affordable prices with no hidden costs – each tailored according to how you would want your loved ones close around the world say goodbye after knowing them best through memories shared over food cooked together; sharing favorite stories told without pause between tears shed freely onto tissues handed up just so everyone has one less thing on his/her plate right
The death of someone you love can be a difficult event. It’s even more so when they have left behind an online legacy for themselves, which means making sure to take care and protect what should never have been unprotected in the first place-your digital assets! One company looking out after our loved ones’ memories is GoodTrust founded by veterans from around 2020 who were concerned about how information technology would affect society as COVID-19 spread across America causing panic everywhere it touched. They created their secure platform with easy share options now or if something happened while you’re gone – protecting everything people hold dear today.
Digital Thereafter’s mission is to make sure they’re there for you no matter what happens. They do this by taking care of all aspects related death and afterlife planning, including estate plans as well as preneed or memorial services that allow people the option to create a digital vault where their wishes can be stored forever after disposal with ease on site too! In 2021 Digital thereafter will launch its new service which allows family members an early warning system if something important were going wrong before it becomes critical, so we hope everyone gives them another try then because our loved ones deserve nothing less than your best efforts.
While companies like Everdays, Digital Thereafter, and Good Trust allow people to mourn the deaths of their loved ones, the environmental impact of the funeral industry is of growing concern. These growing concerns are due to controversies concerning socio-cultural and environmental impacts of post-mortem procedures.
The environment is being destroyed at an alarming rate due to the high levels of pollution in our atmosphere. Some people have seen this as a major contributor, while others are more concerned with how cremation affects them and those around them long-term. As we know that 60% percent less vegetation needs oxygen when disposed via fire; it’s clear why many choose cremations over burials – but what about you? Will your choice affect future generations like me or will my grandchildren never experience such things because their home was too far away from any burn areas?? Let’s take care before making irreversible decisions based upon emotional reactions alone.
With the rise of eco-friendly death tech, it is more important than ever for people who are preparing their remains after they pass on to do so in ways that will not harm our environments. One way this can be done is by investing into fire cremation instead of traditional casket burials which have been known countless times throughout history as releasing harmful chemicals like dioxin when burned or desiccated corpse burial practices (commonly practiced up until recent decades) which often lead directly towards Eco toil depletion because some urns require a lot tine metal ions from fossil fuels during production process.
Though, due to the release of large amounts of CO2 and other pollutants from burning fuels like coal in powerplants as well as car emissions which can be up-to 25% more than what we produce locally; there are environmental concerns over cremation. These hazardous compound releases have lead some people believe that their health may also suffer after working with them for long periods without proper protection on site such has been seen by those at a crematory where they handle all sorts of wastes daily before releasing even less so now more waste products do create problems both inside out.
In an effort to reduce the carbon footprint of fire cremation, some death tech startups have created environmentally friendly methods. One such company Aquamation International uses alkaline hydrolysis which is a flameless method and releases less than one-tenth as much greenhouse gas when compared with traditional fires for incinerating bodies in arrangements like funerals without having any flames or other emissions visible at all during proceedings because it relies on water instead–therefore creating no pollution whatsoever.
Promession, an ecological alternative to traditional burial and cremation is the latest company in a long line that are trying their best for environmental awareness. The process of promession can be used on anyone who has died so loved ones will know how best they want to remember you after death by incorporating your preferences into this practice.
The vision at Promessa revolves around combining biology with tradition in order bring about more dignity while remembering our loved ones because it offers an ethical way out there–a mix between natural decomposition which reduces carbon footprint left behind from when someone dies as well wished-for ritual practices involved just before entombment or internment respectively.
One more alternative to fire cremation that is advantageous for the environment, and beneficial in many ways. Human composting allows families to turn their loved ones’ bodies into usable soil used by trees; these facilities are called “recompose.” The first ever human compost site will open soon enough- but not before 2021.
The company BIOS Urn is revolutionizing post-mortem rituals by converting the ashes of those who have passed to soil used for growing trees. This not only gives them a second chance at life, but also helps clean up our earth and its resources.
In this day and age, people are looking for alternatives to traditional burial. Coeio has created a biodegradable suit that will transform bodies into vital nutrients which enrich the earth while fostering new life by using mushrooms as well other microorganisms in their process! The Infinity Burial Suit was co-created with late 90210-star Luke Perry who passed away last year from an alcohol related illness before being able to wear it himself at his own funeral service.
The creator behind these incredible innovations hopes you’ll consider wearing one after hearing about how they work- so much more eco-friendly than disposing of cremated remains traditionally or through reusing them.
The Eterneva death tech startup in Austin turns cremated remains into custom diamonds. On their website, they describe what they do as celebrating remarkable people & pets by turning ashes into beautiful gems-whether you have some at home or are recently grieving the loss of a loved one–you could potentially have something made from your departed’s belongings so that his/her memory will never be lost to time.
Losing someone is never easy, but there are ways to help with the pain.
Loss comes in many forms – some obvious like death itself while other’s less so such as divorce or breakups with friends over time these things still cause us grief which leads me onto my next point about coping mechanisms; how do you want your legacy remembered? Is it by family members that may not be around forever themselves or would rather see something tangible instead of pictures framed adorning walls at home?
Technology is often the only way to keep a person’s memory alive, but it can’t ease their pain. Social distancing and environmentally friendly technologies make for better coping methods by allowing us all – living or dead-to honor our loved ones so they have another chance at life through what you are left with after losing them.
The best way possible in this day an age would be technology which doesn’t just helps those who’ve lost someone close rather than making everything easier on everyone involved because there will still remain some form of sadness no matter how much progress humankind makes when something bad happens.
