How Funeral Homes Can Use Apple’s Nerd Goggles | FFFW 140

Three Ways Funeral Pros Can Use “Apple Vision Pro”

Apple just announced it’s wearable headgear tech called “Apple Vision Pro.” It’s an iPhone that straps to your face. No, we have no clue what the long term effects of this are – but who cares? I’ve thought of three ways you can begin integrating these into your funeral work flow.

1) To confuse the elderly. Grandma just started understanding emojis. Now, you can really get her fired up by asking her to start using alien-tech space goggles to help the preplanning process. She’ll love it.

2) Look at new wallpaper. Using the augmented reality, you can finally see what your building would look like if you replaced the 80s wallpaper with something newer- at least something from the 90s. Revolutionary.

3) Disconnect from the reality of grief around you. That’s right. You have a heavy job. But, instead of wrestling with that and maybe finding the deeper truths of life- you can just space out. Play some immersive Mario Kart or something. Who needs to think about the harsh reality of life when you can create your own reality? Encourage the families you serve to do the same. I promise, this whole “fake world” thing is really healthy for created humans like ourselves.

A Thought.

“Casket” rhymes with “basket.” And a casket is kinda just a basket for your body.

“Urn” also rhymes with the word “churn,” but it doesn’t have a cool connection like casket and basket.
