Austrian bereavement company Aspetos is adding a unique feature to its grave stone and grave marker products. Following the trend these days, Aspetos is now offering gravestones with quick response codes (QR codes) that link to an online content created especially for the dear departed. However, these Aspetos QR codes are different from the rest.
What makes these tombstone QR codes more special
While other companies offer QR codes in sticker format that only need to be attached to the tombstones or grave markers, Aspetos has called in skilled stonemasons who will be sandblasting the codes on the gravestone surface instead.
These two-dimensional matrix barcodes, when scanned using a smartphone equipped with a reader app, will lead to a customized webpage containing information, stories, photos, videos and other facts about the deceased individual. QR codes have therefore become a great way for friends and family to remember their dead loved ones, and for other visitors and even strangers to know more about the person buried below.
The skilled artisans hired by Aspetos are now working on these 2D bar codes. The first batch of these QR codes will be appearing on graves in the country in the next few weeks.
Five years in the making
This special gravestone QR code program has been in the works for quite some time now. In fact, Joerg Bauer, who is the project leader for Aspetos, has been working on the development and the creation of the company’s QR codes service for about five years. Bauer hopes that people will enjoy this new feature to remember and learn about those who have passed away before them. He also warns people who use the codes to be respectful of others and avoid playing at high volumes those videos and music that are linked to the QR codes they scan.
