Tikker Counts Down To Your Ultimate Demise
A new watch called Tikker is killing it on Kickstarter. The watch is not your typical time-telling gadget. It slowly counts down to your supposed last breath. Tikker arrives with an instruction manual and a questionnaire meant to estimate how long the wearer is scheduled to live. Plug it in and Tikker literally counts down the seconds to the wearer’s demise, all the while displaying the current time. Obviously, a lot of people think it’s a good idea with the company already surpassing its $25,000 Kickstarter goal by $9,000 with about three weeks left on the clock. Makers of Tikker say the idea behind the watch is to encourage wearers to realize their life has an end date and they should make the most of their lives while they have them and at $39 the price won’t give you a heart attack. It’s like beating a deadline.
