App-enabled planter will help a loved one's remains grow into a tree

Bios Incube is a smart, sustainable urn of the future: plant a loved one’s cremated remains, and watch a tree grow with the help of an app-synced facilitator.

This is an expansion of the Bios Urn, a plantable, biodegradable urn that holds a loved one’s remains. The Urn is planted inside the incubator, a large, somber, white planter. A smart sensor, placed on the soil’s surface, will start tracking conditions for the plant to grow, including temperature, light exposure, and moisture levels in both atmosphere and soil. The sensor sends data to a smartphone app so that the plant can always be monitored.
