The advance of technology seems to be moving faster than a speeding bullet and more powerfully than a locomotive. There is much about each successive technological leap that helps to improve our overall quality of life.

The paper calendar gave way to handheld pocket calendars which preceded today’s multi-platform online calendar that can be updated automatically across several devices. The convenience enjoyed as a result of this example hardly even qualifies as one of the greater improvements we’ve been granted by the evolution of innovation.

Now, apparently, technology has advanced yet again, this time offering us comfort during what is arguably one of the most difficult and stressful life events we could ever experience. The loss of a loved one is never easy. Seeking to provide solace to those in grief, Arlington, Vermont-based Cremation Solutions found the intersection of touching memorial and technology in their 3-D printed custom designed urns.

As first reported at c|, Cremation Solutions stated, “The urns are created using the latest technology to create a perfect likeness of the deceased. Using pictures and special facial recognition software we can transform your favorite two-dimensional image into a three-dimensional sculpture that captures the finest details.”

The company statement continued, “They only need one or two photos to create the likeness, and it can even erase blemishes so they will look their best for all eternity. You will never again have to worry that you might forget what your loved one looked like when you invest in one of these custom-made, very lifelike cremation urns.”

Cremation Solutions even offers the option to put the face of your loved one on their favorite fictional characters, like Superman. Their revolutionary software solution paired with a Cambridge, U.K.-based tech startup has made the possibility of being memorialized as the Man of Steel a reality.

A 3-D life sized recreation of the head of a deceased loved one will not be everyone’s cup of tea. This technological advancement out of Vermont, however, is one of several options made available to those who choose cremation over a traditional funeral. Working with a reputable cremation provider, you can avail yourself of each memorial possibility for your recently deceased friend or family member.
