The Coffin of the Future...Today!

No pine box for me when I shed this mortal coil... nosiree. Send me off in The Cocoon, by the Germany company Uono. This bad boy features a shape right out of a Star Trek movie, and it comes in a variety of shiny shiny space age colors. (I wonder if you can mount phasers and warp drive on it). They won't say what it's made out of, but they do say it decomposes in 10 to 15 years, and the finish releases no toxic fumes, if you're not into the whole buried in the ground in the sure and certain hope of the resurrection thing. They don't give a price but, hey, you can't take it with you!
