Israeli industrial designer Hadas Arnon‘s ‘Digital Cemetery’ consists of USB sticks gathered into an archive, offering a place to mourn and remember the dead. Family and friends can gather all of the digital data of the deceased onto a small memory drive and then access it later.

Arnon was inspired by today’s digital world, where most people have a lot of data and an internet profile on social networks. This led to the idea for the digital cemetery, where lots of sticks are gathered and digital memory is preserved.

People who have lost a loved one can visit and remember them at any time. After a quick computer search, they can find the location of the requested memorial stick, take it to a separate room and view all the pictures, videos, songs and other data.
