I’m not sure I would want a constant reminder of my aging, but I have to admit that the Life Clock is a nifty idea. Actually, for children, this would be the perfect countdown tool to each upcoming birthday!

Created by Bertrand Planes, the Life Clock is a modified Karlsson Clock. Slowed down by a factor of 61320, each number on the face represents a year, up to 80 years. But just because the Life Clock ends at 80 doesn’t mean you will. A very morbid thought, I know. Stats for Age-Tracking Gadgets Trending: Older & Chilly
