Digital Deadpets

Posted on

Give your ”dead” digital pet a proper send-off into cyberheaven at Web designer Bob DeSiena’s delightfully weird and cleverly executed virtual funeral parlor, Digital Deadpets (http://www.d-3.com/deadpet). Options include ”cheap” (a quickie, in-a-bucket burial), ”standard” (three pallbearers), and ”lavish” (an angel-winged mausoleum). Plug in personal data about your little buddy and try to hold back the tears as electronic bagpipes squeak out a mournful dirge while cute-as-electronic-pie creatures extol the virtues of the dear departed.
