Urn is a product that gives attention to the importance of our virtual death and the fact that we do not dwell on the thought of what we do with all our personal data after we, as a human beings are dead. Nowadays we leave the choice of what to do with our virtual data after our death to companies like Google Inc., Apple Inc., different hosting parties and surviving relatives. Relatives who do not know in which corner of the internet you have been, and you may also prefer to keep it that away!
Urn makes it possible to determine which data will be consumed and which data persists. Urn reveals the places you’ve been to, on the internet and on the other hand it create a link with the human body, when your heart stops beating it will immediately destroy all your designated data.
A TESTAMENT FOR YOUR VIRTUAL LIFE
We live in a time where we are moving more and more in the virtual world, but there’s hardly a connection with the physical body.
With a vision to the future, where we live in the ‘age of data’, your online identity will only grow more. We create our own virtual life that will leave a radical amount of data when the physical body is no longer there. The fact that there is no direct connection between the virtual life and the physical body, there will be a certain period of time in which the online world does not know that the body behind the screen no longer exists. Urn is the solution.
HOW IT WORKS
Connecting with the human body.
Urn is using a heart rate monitor chip that will function as a connection between the two worlds in which we find ourselves. The chip will be located under the skin, this makes it possible and necessary to remove your data simultaneously after you die.
4. LOGIC BOMB
SEND A CRITICAL VIRUS
In order to clean up the data from your past in a natural way to the desired speed and quantity, Urn is working on the basis of a ‘logic bomb virus’. This virus activates when a certain, pre-programmed, change occurs in the human body (for example when the heart stops beating). Hereby any kind of virus can be activated such as the ‘payload’, which is the actual effective part of the virus.
The ‘logic bomb virus’, which the Urn contains, will be activated when the body does not show any heartbeat after 10 minutes. After confirming that the heart has stopped, by the heart rate monitor, the virus will be activated.
The virus will be spread through an external hard drive in order to spread the virus directly into the system and the web. Urn can be attached to your personal network (Local Area Network), this prevents you to link the Urn continuously on your computer. And above all, in this way it is always ready for immediate use!
WHAT TO DISCONNECT
Connect your online profile to your implant and deside what data will die with you on the exact same time that you pass away.
Urn allows you to place the data in a time period.
After the decay, it is not possible to recover.

WHAT TO LEAVE BEHIND?
After you die the government will initiate a protocol to take care of your possessions. But because URN is directly connected to you and your death, it will be able to react instantly. This creates the possibility to move your money and your virtual properties directly to the persons you want without an interference of the government. This way you can easily get around post mortem tax.
WHAT ELSE TO LEAVE BEHIND?
Leave your final message to the world.
Leave a life lesson or joke behind by making use of an image or e-mail letter that is placed on your social network.
