INFINITY / Memorial object

INFINITY
INFINITY

When a loved one passes away, the need for memories has never been bigger. However, these memories are scattered throughout scrapbooks and persons.
INFINITY functions as a memorial and bundles the memories at the place where they matter the most: the grave.
INFINITY records and stores memories shared at a funeral or cemetery, and makes it possible to save these for other visitors.

Inspired by time, the device uses a wind-up mechanism of a clock to power the device for a period of time. Non-volatile memory is used to store memories everlasting.

This ensures that generations after, the device still functions and memories live on.
