People are living in a day and age where technology reigns supreme and with that comes some unexpected creations such as the Digital Cemetery. As people both old and young die, they are now leaving behind more than memories--digital traces of their lives everywhere from online to their personal computer hard drive. The Digital Cemetery provides a solemn place for loved ones to store such data.

Designed by Israeli industrial designer Hadas Arnon, the Digital Cemetery resembles an actual cemetery while the 'tombstones' are the USBs themselves. Engraved with the date of the person's death as well as their name, these flash drives form familiar rows, if in a smaller way, which people can access at any time.
