Talk about a death watch!
Imagine someone told you that you only had one year left to live. How would that change your life?
The designers of a prototype watch say that all we have to do is learn how to cherish the time and the life that we have been given, to honor it, suck the marrow from it, seize the day and follow our hearts.
They say that the best way to do this is to realize that seconds, days and years are passing never to come again. And to make the right choices.
Tikker is a wrist watch that counts down your life from years to seconds, and, they hope, motivate you to make the right choices.
The wearer simply fills out a questionnaire, deducts his/her current age from the results, and TIKKER is ready to start the countdown.
The inventors say it's important to remember that it's not about how much time you have, it's what you do with it.
The Tikker team has been working on the watch for more than two years.
They are running a Kickstarter campaign to manufacture the watch.
