Facebook has improved its new 3D photos feature so that more users can have the chance to bring their images to life. The feature previously only worked for devices with upmarket camera specifications. However, Facebook has now extended it to work on older smart devices, such as mid-market Androids and the iPhone 7. From now on, the feature can also be used on the front-facing single-lens camera to take 3D selfies.
3D Photos: One Step Closer to Reality
Facebook says that this improvement is possible due to the high advancements in their AI and teaching it to infer the third-dimension structures from two-dimensional photos within a fraction of a second. Researchers said that this could make this photo technology easily accessible for the first time to millions of people who only have single-lens camera tablets or phones.
Facebook later added in their statement that it would also allow every user to experience decades-old family photos and valuable images in a new way, thanks to the 3D technology. Users with state-of-the-art dual-camera devices can also benefit from this improvement because they can now use their front-facing single camera to take 3D selfies. From now on, anyone with an iPhone 7 or higher, and recent midrange or better Android device can try the option in the Facebook app.
Facebook announced these photos for the first time in 2018, but they were only available with iPhones that could take portrait mode shots.

In many European countries, a tombstone bears the image of the departed. Often, the words that are inscribed on a tombstone, or the epitaph, tell us something about the deceased. Although it can be sometimes sad to remember those who are no longer with us, these funny tombstones prove that it’s not always the case. When you look at these tombstones, they would actually make you smile.
Hard to Impress
This tombstone belongs perhaps to a person who was quite particular about their needs. They didn’t believe in settling for less than what they wanted, as evident from the text on their tombstone that reads “I was hoping for a pyramid.”
However, in the end (literally), they had to settle for this basic tombstone. Well, we hope they won’t come back to haunt their family for not putting up a pyramid for them.
Well, we aren’t exactly sure about what is happening here, but we will still go ahead and make an educated guess. Either this tombstone belongs to an artist or to a person with artistic skills.
We didn’t get this statue though, of a man who is holding the face of another man in his hands. Though hard to guess, this tombstone does look beautiful in an eerie way.
Wiser Than You!
What exactly do they know that we don’t? That sounds ominous and we wonder what could it be. Did the person know about the darker aspects of our lives – a secret perhaps? If they did, they surely took it to the grave, literally.
Or, are they just messing with us? Whatever their motto was, they were pretty successful at it, we’d say.
Stating the Obvious
Unlike the other tombstones, this one reveals the cause of this person’s departure. The person in question passed away after battling with a prolonged illness and hence this line.
Passing away due to illness can be pretty tough as it can eat away the person’s spirit and will to live. But, this person fought tooth and nail with their illness, before succumbing to it.
Desire to Be Different
It is difficult to know what this statue is about as it looks very abstract and random. Perhaps, the statue had some sort of connection with the individual. Maybe it is a character from some television show or some figure from the local history or folklore?
Whatever it is, it makes us want to search the internet to learn more about its origin. Your thoughts?
Everyone faces existential issues at some point or other – and that includes those who are no longer with us. While some get lost in the maze of emotions during the process of finding answers to the complex questions of existence, some deal with it with a touch of humor.
This person definitely belongs to the latter category as his tombstone reads: Noah Escape, Always Felt Trapped! Funny, right?
Since a graveyard is a quiet place, it can get pretty boring there. This angel seems to echo our thoughts on the matter, as she looks awfully bored. Doesn’t she resemble that one classmate who always waited for the bell to ring?
To be fair, we can’t exactly blame her here, as she doesn’t seem to have a suitable company with whom she can spend time together.
It is common for couples to fight over things. While the reasons for the fight and how they fight may vary from couple to couple, all couples are similar with respect to their love of fighting with each other.
This couple seems to have taken their fighting to their grave, as the sign on one of the partner’s tombstones reads: I am with stupid. Aw, you two!
Some tombstones are just too artistic for us to understand. This is one of them. We, for one, have numerous questions such as why is he holding a rose between his fingers? Who is it for?
Is that a mustache on his face or just a massive lip? What does his posture signify? If you have answers or theories about any of these, please let us know in the comments section below.
Laziness is a virtue some people live by, and it does rub on you, especially during the weekends. The person beneath this tombstone was born a slacker and remained one throughout their life as their tombstone suggests.
This tombstone definitely puts the “R” in RIP. We enjoy sardonic humor, so don’t judge us.
Candidness is always refreshing. There is a reason why candid interviews on TV are liked by many. Remember Meghan Markle and (former) Prince Harry’s frank interview with Opera Winfrey? Now, you know what we are talking about!
Coming back to the tombstone, this is definitely one of the most candid confessions we’ve ever seen on a tombstone thus far.
Did Anyone Say Pool?
Using a pool table as a tombstone inscription is unique. This couple (Sharol and Leon) seem to have been ardent pool players. Perhaps, they were crazy about it. Maybe these two were not together after but just game opponents.
Anyway, their commitment to the game is quite inspiring. We, for one, are tempted to play one round of the game, like right away.
A BMW Aficionado
This guy simply adored his BMW. Apparently, he adored it so much that he decided to be buried under it. Guess he lived by the saying: money can’t buy happiness, but it is way better to cry in a BMW than on a bicycle.
Whoever this guy was, he surely appreciated the finer things in life. Also, we don’t think he would object if we take his BMW for a quick ride, right?
Taking a Dig at Deceased Wife
This simple poem, at a first glance, looks innocent except it is not. The poem is laced with copious amounts of sarcasm, left-handed compliments, and what-not.
We bet they were so annoyed with their partner that they couldn’t help but feel a little relieved when they finally left them at peace.
Nerd, and Proud of it!
Everyone these days, is in a way, chained to their electronic devices, namely computers and smartphones. It is rightly said that going offline is a luxury only a few could afford today. This guy’s tombstone attests to this claim.
The computer screen has a monochrome image of a couple smiling lovingly at the audience. We guess that these people are related to the deceased individual in some way.
Finally, at Last!
Finding a parking spot in an already overcrowded town can be a bit of a headache. Are any urban planners reading this? This couple, namely, Katharine and Sterling, managed to find a spot for themselves after they were gone.
Though the message on their tombstone is intended to be humorous, it does have a point about not being able to find parking anywhere these days.
Owning the Narrative
Any kid with an odd-sounding name is likely to be bullied throughout their life. This person seems to be one of them. But, he gets to say the last word this time.
And, he maintains that humorous approach even from beyond the grave: Here lies John Yeast. Pardon me for not rising. The pun here is really clever.
It takes serious courage to convert a tombstone into an Ouija board. It is as if the person is inviting people to gather around for the summoning ritual. We are not entirely sure about whether the Ouija board works or not.
However, this is a pretty good way to scare people away from their headstones. It definitely has that creepy and humorous vibe to it, depending on how you see it.
Celebrating the Man
This tombstone celebrates the lifestyle of Walter W. Stauffen. It pays homage to his remarkable and colorful life and how he used to live it to the fullest despite his poor financial condition in the end.
From the inscription, we can gather that Walter loved to spend money on the things he liked, which included women and adult beverages. What a way to live!
Don’t Take the Call
Calls from unknown numbers can be annoying, but not for Kim as she has had a habit of picking up calls from any number. So, when she received a call from the man up there, she promptly answered it.
Her tombstone, too, refers to her excitement of attending the call from the Almighty. If you intend to call her number, don’t! She is not done talking yet.
Surrounded by Dimwits
The news of a young person passing away is especially saddening due to the fact that they were deprived of witnessing countless pleasures. Anyway, coming back to the headstone, this one resonates with us on a visceral level.
Surrounded by different kinds of dumb people is something we all can relate to. We guess, there is no getting rid of them, even in the afterlife.
Leave the Lights On!
It can be pretty dark down there. The underworld, in popular culture and old classic texts, is referred to as a dark place where light is absent. The underworld is said to be darker than a black hole.
This tombstone reiterates the fact that it can be pretty dark underneath. Here is an idea: let’s get some light down there.
Keep Your Distance
This tombstone is one of our favorites as it tells people to stay as far from it as possible. In fact, it reminds us of traffic signs.
We guess it would have been better if they had just written “wrong lane.” Also, another nice addition would be a traffic light. In any case, we think we got the message and make a u-turn just to be on the safe side.
Pointing Out the Obvious
This tombstone says it all in plain words: you can run and you can hide, but there is no escaping the inevitable. You are going down, eventually.
The deceased was aware of this fact and lived as if each day would be his last or maybe he just knew when he’ll get the call. Whatever the case may be, it encourages people to live their lives to the fullest.
In some religions, when a person dies, the soul doesn’t necessarily move on to the next world but returns in the body of a different person. A soul is said to go through various stages of reincarnation before it attains the state of salvation.
We have to admit that this is quite sassy. We liked the part of them telling their family not to touch their stuff, since they are coming back after all.
Let ‘er Rip
Next up, is a tombstone belonging to a celebrity. So, it has to be witty. The tombstone, in question, belongs to the deceased Canadian actor and comedian Leslie Nelson.
Nelson, in 2018, passed away after a long battle with pneumonia. His tombstone at Fort Lauderdale’s Evergreen Cemetery reads Let ’er rip! We just adore how this guy maintained his sense of humor all the way to the end.
We have to admit that this one takes the cake. What a better way of stating the obvious here other than saying it in a sarcastic way. Yes, buddy, you are definitely pushing up the daisies here.
We bet that sense of humor got him into lots of trouble when they were still alive. But, you have to admit that it’s rather funny.
Inspired by Raggedy Ann
Raggedy Ann was one of the popular dolls of the 20th century. This doll was a hit among girls, who enjoyed the doll’s features and qualities.
The individual buried here apparently loved her doll so much that she decided to get her tombstone fashioned in the form of Raggedy Ann. Maybe, she was also buried with her favorite doll too. While we don’t know many details about her history, we hope that she is at peace now.
That’s All Folks
Next up, we have another tombstone belonging to the celebrity Mel Blanc. Blanc was an American voice actor, largely known for giving voice to the characters of Bugs Bunny from Looney Tunes, hence the “that’s all folks” reference.
He was also lovingly known as the man of thousand voices. The epitaph on his tombstones pays a tribute to his illustrious rich career and personal stature as a doting father and a caring husband.
Whatever the world says about the geeks, they do have the best sense of humor. This is a nice wordplay on “I came; I saw; I conquered.” In other words, this is the geek version of it.
For those who didn’t get it ‘connection reset by the peer’ is an SSH error when the other end unexpectedly closes the connection. The inscription is accompanied by a shiny cross, perhaps an indication of this person’s religious beliefs.
A Local Folklore
The Witch’s Grave in Yazoo city is located in the middle of the historic section of Glenwood Cemetery. The legend of Yazoo Witch became famous after Willie Morris wrote about it in his 1971 book Good Old Boy.
The tombstone, here, alludes to the local folklore without giving many details about its connection to the deceased. We are assuming that the deceased was a big fan of Morris’ works.
Puns can be downright punny. Do you see what we did here? Well, we hope you did. This is the case here: can you see where the pun is buried?
The deceased takes advantage of his name Barry to create a pun that’s brilliant on all levels. Guess, we could take a tip or two from this one on how to create puns that are on-point.
This tombstone is another example of humor done right. It says: Ouch, you are standing on my head. The deceased can feel pain too, so it is important to give them some space as well.
Therefore next time, you see someone standing very close to the gravestone, don’t hesitate to walk up to them and say that they might be standing on the deceased’s head. They might not like it, but will be more careful in the future.
Call Me Maybe?
We are unsure about what the inscription on this tombstone means. Maybe the deceased wanted you to have the option to contact them in the afterlife? We wonder if they also left their number somewhere.
The other reason can be that maybe the deceased loved their phone so much that they literally could not live without it. Heard of Nomophobia? Well, that could be a strong possibility here!
A Touching Tribute
Some epitaphs confess certain sad truths about the people who lie beneath. The person under this tombstone pays tribute to his cat, Dewey, leaving a heartfelt message.
So, Dewey here was more than a cat. He was cat-human. He was there when his owner needed him most, at a time when other humans failed them.
A Family Tree
This tombstone seems to trace a family lineage that goes far back. They did it in a very unusual and funny way. It feels almost like a giddy ditty, making it easier for anyone to trace this person’s ancestry.
The family names, however, are difficult to pronounce. We can’t guess their ethnic origin, even though we are quite curious to know it.
My Tombstone, My Rules
Heard of the phrase My Life, My Rules? This tombstone reminds us of that. Looks like Lola here was a wild one. We bet she was warm, friendly but also sassy.
This also sums up her attitude towards life in general, as we get to know that Lola always took things with a grain of salt. We hope she rests in peace now.
He Was a Foodie
We all know that one person to whom we would always turn for food recommendations. Everyone has their favorite foodie buddy who lives to eat (and not the other way around).
The guy underneath the tombstone was one such person as he loved his bacon, wife, and kids – in that order. We guess some things in life are more important than others.
Didn’t Know What to Write
Well, at least they didn’t leave it blank. We mean, you have to write something before you go no? So, they just wrote something to fill the blank space.
You know there are some inscriptions that simply make no sense? This may be one of them. Or they could not think of anything so they simply had a few syllables carved.
This inscription, too, has again got us puzzled as to why would anyone put LOL in their epitaph. Does LOL have some other meaning we are unaware of? We have quite a lot of reading to do if that is the case.
Perhaps, the person found something amusing underneath that made him go LOL. Or is it some typo? Either way, this tombstone made us chuckle. Some people also think that LOL is not Laugh Out Loud but actually Lots of Love. It could be that.
