The Dying TV Spot Finds New Home: The Gravestone

American inventor Robert Burlingame of California has filed a patent application for a tombstone that has a flat screen video monitor embedded within it. Burlingame wants to provide those on death's door the ability to create a video containing final words which can then be viewed by visitors to the grave site. It's only matter of time before some enterprising ad technology company like Captivate Networks latches onto this an provides pre-death message ad units. Thank to Adrants reader Charley Brough for pointing this out.
