Musical Coffin Serenades The Deceased
Swedish company Pause has developed the CataCoffin – a burial coffin that comes with a CataCombo Sound System that will pump music into the (un)listening ears of the dearly departed. A custom-built 2.1 amplifier, 2-way speakers, tweeters with external cooler and an 8-inch subwoofer specially tunes to the coffin’s acoustic space come standerd with the CataCoffin. The deceased can listen to their favourite tunes well into the afterlife, and so can those who are mourning thanks to the CataTomb tombstone that has an upgradeable music server that runs on a 2.5GHz Intel processor and a 4G wireless connection (allowing the living to manage playlists online from afar). While this idea seems absolutely frivolous and unnecessary (last time we checked, the sense of hearing passes away along with the body…) it is a wild concept and we applaud Pause for their ridiculous idea. What do you think? Would you choose to keep your loved ones serenaded long after their time?
