A firm in Slovenia is manufacturing interactive digital headstones on graves that play multimedia content.

Installed at the Pobrezje cemetery in northeastern Slovenia, the 48-inch screens are weather and vandal-proof.

They are part of digitally interactive tombstones which can be programmed with a smartphone app to run an entire funeral ceremony automatically, including pictures, pre-recorded speech and video or music.

The inventors say it's their way of bringing afterlife into the 21st century.
