Store the dead in automated warehouses

Nichiryoku cremation system

With space in the busy areas of Japan at a premium, burying the deceased can be a stress filled, headache inducing, and an expensive event. However, leave it to the Japanese to come up with a ingenious way of solving this problem with a bit of technology.

Nichiryoku cremation systemNichiryoku has created an automated cremation retrieval system. When you present a RFID key, the system then retrieves your loved one’s cremated remains and presents them in a semi-private prayer area. There are a few different locations to accommodate as many people as possible.

How would you feel about having your loved ones in a place like this? While this is a very creative, and unique idea, essentially what you have here is a rented self-storage warehouse for your loved ones’s remains. One could argue that a cemetery is the same thing I guess. One thing is for sure, at least they came up with a solution for a pressing problem in Japan.
