Tikker: Death Watch That Counts Down To The Day You Die
Date Published: 02/05/2015 9:05 AM
The Tikker is a wrist watch that counts down until the day you die. Simply input a few key data points about your life, and the watch will hash over a few algorithms and start counting down until the day of your death. The clock shows years, months, days, hours, minutes, even down to the second, but also shows the current time if you care about that. If the watch does actually work until the day the counter gets to zero and you don't die, you'll finally get to realize that you bought a crappy watch, even if it did take 53 years to figure it out. Although the watch probably doesn't work at all, it may be an amusing thing to wear to remind yourself to live in the moment and have a little more fun, and to live a little instead of being the pale, dull, house-hermit, fun-sponge you usually are.
The Tikker was originally funded from a Kickstarter campaign that they successfully ran back in November of 2013 and is currently for sale on Amazon. The Tikker death watch is water resistant, comes with a white and black strap to choose from, and is powered from a battery that will last 2-3 years, which in between battery changes the watch will continue to track your death internally.
