It's a case of life and death

The thought of death is only depressing if you miss the point.

Remember you must die

A simple reminder of death is enough to bring us closer to living the life we want. The Moment-o-Mori phone case is just that reminder.

The text on the Moment-o-Mori lights up when the case gets hot. The text “Before I Die.” reminds us that life is brief and tender. It’s a self-check to determine whether we’re spending our time on the trivial or meaningful things in life.

A moment of contemplation

In the current times of distraction, it is more relevant than ever to remember that life is fleeting. We use our phones to interact with each other, as a tool, and sometimes as an escape. We are inseparable. Where we go, our phones go.

The more we use our smartphone, the more the thermochromatic coat of paint on the phone case gets activated. It turns the Moment-o-Mori from a standard phone case into a reminder when we need it the most.

The imprint that our hands leave on the case encourages us to think about how we want to spend our time.

No life without death

All of us will be intimate with death at least once in life. What if that relationship would begin sooner rather than later?



Using the thought of death in our daily life does not make life meaningless, but meaningful. It’s a tool we can use to create perspective and find peace and happiness in life. A simple reminder for us to treat our time as a gift.

Preparing for death is one of the most empowering things we can do. You could leave life right now. Let that determine what you say, think, and do.
