NEW YORK, NY - APRIL 30: A driver uses a phone while behind the wheel of a car on April 30, 2016 in New York City. As accidents involving drivers using phones or other personal devices mount across the country, New York lawmakers have proposed a new test called the Textalyzer to help curb mobile phone usage behind the wheel. Similar to a Breathalyzer test, the Textalyzer would allow police to request phones from drivers involved in accidents and then determine if the phone had been used while the drivers operated their vehicles. The controversial bill is currently in the early committee stage. According to statistics, In 2014 431,000 people were injured and 3,179 were killed in car accidents involving distracted drivers.

Technology has made made life much easier, but would you want that same ease after you are gone? In a recent CNN Tech article,  a team of journalist explored the thought of texting after death. In the article, the team meets Eugenia Kuyda, an entrepreneur, who used thousand of a dead friends tweets, texts and Facebook post to create a IRL that would allow people to text him after he unexpectedly passed.
Crazy? Not really, because Kuyda is not  the first person to explore this idea, of using technology to keep a person alive after they have died.
According to the article, James Norris, founder of Dead Social, has created a platform where people can videotape a Facebook message to post once they have passed. His platform also allows users to create a digital will, pick music to be played at their funeral and pre-program tweets to be sent after they die.
