The majority of humans will think that death is the end of life and with a negative mood. But in many cultures, death is not the last destination. Their philosophy is people will live in another space or world with a new life form. So people will attend the funeral ceremonies to bless the deceased and say the last goodbye. But is that possible to let life transform into another life?
This project is about an autonomous funeral vehicle with an eco-funeral business. The vehicle's design (Reborn) and the coffin(Life cocoon) are inspired by the butterfly's life cycle. The shape of Reborn will look like a cocoon when doors are closed. But when those doors are opened, it will look like a butterfly. The coffin will be made of plywood with wood filler with transparent water jelly and seed about the Life Cocoon. The corpse will become the nutrient and let the seed become a tree in two years.
Nevertheless, this vehicle will help relatives and friends to get over the bad emotion with A.R. technology. When doors open, some A.R. butterflies projection will come out as the meaning of new life which transformed from the old life. Also, When the vehicle is on the road, the vehicle will create a flower smell with flowers. Reborn can help passer-by have a good image of the funeral use vehicle.
