Bios Incube turns you into a tree after you die

Bios Incube tree

The maker of the Bios Urn – a biodegradable urn that turns your ashes into a tree after you die – is crowdfunding for a new design that uses smart technology to help the tree thrive.

Currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter, the new Bios Incube package contains the original biodegradable Bios Urn and an incubator that facilitates growth. A connected mobile app enables you to track and monitor your tree, tells you how it's doing and provides any necessary advice for maintenance.

Bios Urn says its system, promoted with the #lifeafterlife hashtag, 'changes the way people see death, converting the "end of life" into a transformation and a return to life through nature'. It's also considerably cheaper than the average funeral cost – there's an early bird special price of $350 (£247) – which puts the funeral ritual back in the hands of the people.

Here's an informative (and pretty sensitive) video.
