Eternal / Drone


More people are choosing an eco-friendly sea burial, but the existing form of sea burial, scatter ashes from the boat to the sea, not only has shortcomings like complicated process, higher cost and higher risk, but also does not construct enough sense of ceremony for the farewell ceremony.
Combined the words “Life comes from the ocean” with “The soul belongs to the stars”, this design enables people to have the farewell ceremony on the land by sending the degradable cremation urn to the orientation target coordinates directly with drones. In contrast, watching drones flying away would be much more impressive and full of the sense of ceremony.
