Leaving aside my somewhat atypical views on death and ancestor worship, the concept of mixing up a cocktail of printer inks and ashes of dead people to create memorial prints--at $70 to $150 bucks a pop--leaves me with a big case of the ickies. But inkafterlife.com clearly feels no such squeamishness.
Who knows--there may be some big subculture of Goth scrapbookers out there waiting for just such a confluence of hobbies. And similar urn-obsolescing products such as Carbon Gems, Breath Capture and Petglash make bringing out your dead look like a booming cottage industry.
Perhaps the sadder commentary is that once my imaging buddies and I here at CNET got over our initial "ew," the questions started: What printer are they using? Are these archival-quality prints? How do the ashes affect the dynamic range? Is there a gloss deficit? I'm waiting for a call from the company for answers to these burning questions.
