Tikker wristwatch with life countdown

They say make the most out of our time, but how do we know how much time we have left? This interesting watch not only tells you what time it is, but also how much of your time is remaining.

Tikker is a digital wristwatch that also comes with a countdown of your own time. The watch determines how much borrowed time you have left based on the answers you provided from a list of questions detailing your health history, then substracting your age from the results. It ships with a questionnaire booklet called “About Time”, guiding you on calculating your own lifespan. (Theoretically, that is.)

Determining how much longer you will live sounds a bit morbid, don’t you think? But the makers behind Tikker insist that is not what they intend.

“I’s not really about how much time you have, it’s what you do with it,” the team behind Tikker post on its Kickstarter project. “A week spent in love and happiness can be worth more than years spent in agony.”

Fredrik Colting, the creator of Tikker, said has was inspired to develop the device after his grandfather died. “”It made me think about death and the transience of life, and I realized that nothing matters when you are dead. Instead what matters is what we do when we are alive.”

The team aims to raise $25,000 on or before November 1, with backers pledging at least $39 for the watch. As of this posting, they have achieved $7,600 in funding. They still have a long way to go, but its intensions would make Tikker a hit.
