The ‘Digital Cemetery’ by Hadad Arnon is a collection of digital memories stored on USB drives so loved ones can remember the dead. These tech-infused tombstones offer closure and an opportunity to go back and look at past photos, videos and similar items of the deceased.

Arnon says, “The digital memory is an important element in our daily life today, yet it is very intangible.” The Israeli industrial designer was inspired by the data and personal brand people have on social media sites.

The cemetery itself is an archive system and a ‘digital memories stand’ so one can keep track of multiple people who have passed away. To keep organized, one can simply connect the cemetery to the computer and perform a search.
