Dr. Stephen Smith’s final gift to his beloved mother was an invitation to her own funeral, and she obliged with style. Marina Smith, of Nottingham, England, recorded hours of conversations about her life for an artificial intelligence-powered holographic video produced by her son, whose company built the technology. At her funeral, her family was able to interact with the holographic video, asking questions and getting answers. Mrs. Smith had quite a story to tell. She and her late husband founded a nonprofit Christian Center and later converted it into a Holocaust education center. The software is called StoryFile and costs about $47.

Would you like to attend your own funeral, if only in holographic form?
