Where you go when you die

You can become a diamond. For the right price, the good folks at LifeGem will compress your cremated remains into as many as a hundred sparkling colored diamonds and fashion them into all kinds of rings, pendants, and other jewelry to satisfy your loved ones' wearable memorial needs. Hey, a body is mostly carbon after all, right?




Or you could become a tree. The Bio-Urn is an organic burial urn containing a seed, fertilizer, and your ashes. As you decompose, the seed grows, transforming your earthly remains into a new living tree. The Bio-Urn seeks to turn cemeteries into forests, and to plug you directly back into the circle of life. All very The Lion King.

I forgot to mention, they'll make LifeGems for pets, too. Here's a fun project: when your beloved pooch dies, have him cloned and have his LifeGem set into a collar for Poochie 2 to wear. Repeat. Poochie 12 will be an eleventh-generation clone with a gem-studded collar full of the remains of all his genetic parents!
