A smart incubator and biodegradable urn will help people connect with deceased loved ones in a sustainable way

The Bios Incube, a smart urn that grows a tree from cremated ashes (which began on Kickstarter), has launched to the public. The Bios Incube is meant to help people remember loved ones in a sustainable way and uses technology to ensure that new life grows from loss.

While the Bios Urn, a fully biodegradable urn, naturally decomposes into the soil in the Incube incubator, users can track the tree’s data (light, moisture, temperature and more) and get tips on how to best maintain the plant using a corresponding smartphone app. The smart incubator can even automatically water the tree for up to three weeks. After the tree is fully grown, it can be transplanted elsewhere. The Bios Incube is available to order now at a starting price of $450.
