AFTR

Description

An internet-connected videocamera installed at a gravesite that streams video and audio from the grave to a mobile app, where it can be viewed by friends and family. The camera has a built-in speaker that allows the user to speak through it remotely, or play music from a playlist in the app. The app also allows users to record photos, videos, audio streams and text in a day-by-day "diary" view, and see timelapse footage of the gravesite over multiple days. A companion service, AFTR Messaging, allows people to record messages to send to their friends and family at preordained times after their death.
