Bios Urn, a biodegradable urn designed to convert you into a tree after you die.

The Bios Incube has been designed for city dwellers with limited access to natural land, those seeking an alternative to traditional burials, and for people who want to meaningfully connect with their loved ones who have passed away.

From Kickstarter:

After several years of working on the Bios Urn – a biodegradable urn designed to turn you into a tree after you die, – our team has designed a new product that will help us bring the Bios Urn to more people, creating a meaningful experience for us, and the environment.

Bios Incube is the first system that lets you plant your Bios Urn close to you, and combines the insights of tree growth with data from its environment. Depending on the type of tree, the Bios Incube will water it accordingly.

The Bios Incube includes:

Bios Urn. A biodegradable urn designed to allow the growth of a tree when planted using the cremated remains of a loved one.

Bios Incube. The Incubator that facilitates growth, and enables you to track and monitor your Bios Urn when and where you want to.

Mobile application. An application that ties everything together, seamlessly, for you to use. The app will tell you how your tree is growing, and when necessary, provide advice for maintenance.
