Commemorating loved ones in unique ways is becoming a priority for many individuals of late and the Bios Incube satisfies this desire in a way that marries new with old seamlessly. It's not uncommon to plant a tree in memory of someone, but this sustainable urn does so in a much more direct way.

The Bios Incube is essentially a plantable, biodegradable urn that is placed in an incubator -- which is essentially a large, somber, white planter. This planter is equipped with a smart sensor to track conditions for the plant to grow such as temperature, light exposure, and moisture levels in both atmosphere and soil. It also boasts a water tank that can keep the plant hydrated for up to 20 days.

The creators write, "The Bios Incube has been designed for city dwellers with limited access to natural land, those seeking an alternative to traditional burials, and for people who want to meaningfully connect with their loved ones who have passed away."
