Bios Urn was launched two years ago promising to bring your dead loved ones alive once again! It could of course not bring them back in human form, but did claim to grow plants from their ashes using a bios urn. It was a great success, and now “Estudimoline”, a design firm in Barcelona who were behind this product, have taken it to another level by launching “Incube”.
Incube or Bios Incube is designed to be an app-controlled tree incubator that will be compatible with the Bios Urn. So now you can grow plants using the ashes of your loved ones while being able to monitor its health and daily needs from an app.
Bios Urn is designed to slide inside the Incube. The device is then filled with water, with the Incube sensor is placed on top of the soil.
This sensor automatically analyses and records factors that affect plant growth such as light levels, soil and air temperature and humidity, soil conductivity, etc. It then uses the stored water to water the plant in the urn for optimal growth and health.
The water source is placed inside the Incube, and it can hold about 3 gallons of water, which is enough to nourish your seed for about twenty days.
It also has an inbuilt pump for delivering the water from the reservoir to the plant, and the daily activity record is sent to your phone via an app. So you can track and monitor the growth of your tree no matter where you plan to put the urn.
In an official statement, the company said “The Bios Incube has been designed for city dwellers with limited access to natural land, those seeking alternatives to cemeteries, and for people who want to meaningfully connect with their loved ones who have passed away. More and more people are looking for environmentally conscious and economically feasible ways to bury those who have passed, and the Bios Incube offers that and more.”
The urn is recyclable as well, and it can be used to plant and grow many trees. When your young tree is large enough to be planted outdoors, simply take it out and seed the next one; the Bios Incube will do the rest for you!
More details on the Bios Incube are available on their Kickstarter campaign, where the idea has already hit its initial goal. The company has stated that the backers at the €450 level (~$495 USD) will get their own devices, while those at the €120 (~$132 USD) will get their own Bios Urn.
