If you knew how many years, days, minutes, and seconds you have left in your life, will it make you treasure your time here on this planet?
Well, the creators of Tikker think so.
Founded by Swedish publishing creative Fredrik Colting, Tikker is a wristwatch that counts down the user’s life from years down to seconds left. The user of the watch fills out a questionnaire and then deducts his or her age from the results to get his or her “death date.” The date is calculated based on factors like activity level, BMI, and where the wearer lives.
The idea of Tikker is that it will help people make every second count. That is, knowing how much time they have left on earth will push them to make the most of it and make the right choices.
Tikker also tells the wearer the actual time so it’s more than just a countdown.
The creators of Tikker are ‘designers, free-thinkers, lovers and life-afficionados.’ The team has been working on Tikker for two years and they want to bring Tikker to people all over the globe. The group is currently raising funds on Kickstarter for the watch.
