During a wake, one of the things that are first considered is the coffin of the bereaved member of the family. The ones we often see are those white coffins with accents of gold on the edges or on the handles. Of course, there are also other colors for the coffin and also different types of materials used which determines its price.
But, did you know that there is this new invention in which a coffin has LED lights that are color-changing? Yes, you’ve read it right, it’s no longer just the Bluetooth speakers or flower vases that have this color-changing function because now, a coffin has one.
In a post by Bejer Basco Funeral Parlor, a funeral parlor based in Legazpi City, Albay, they shared photos of the new design in the coffins that they sell.
The said design did not just end with an alteration on the materials they use or on the outer color of the coffin but it was, the simple white one only that they added a twist – the color-changing LED lights.
Photos uploaded with the post showing the 5 colors of the lights that are continuously changing, these are white, green, violet, blue, and red. These colors change gradually which gives out a somehow happy atmosphere instead of the gloomy one that is often seen in wakes.
Of course, there are varied opinions about this new innovation in coffins, there are others who say that this is a good idea so that the coffin will not look too plain. But, there are also others who say that this is unnecessary as it will destroy the solemnity of the wake which is also considered a disrespect to the dead relative.
Other netizens joking said that it made them excited to die to try it out themselves.
Despite this varying opinion, this innovation in the ordinary coffins that we use is just proof that people really are overflowing with ideas. And it only takes a platform for these ideas to be put to use.
