The Tikker Watch Tells You the Time and How Long You Have to Live

Those who are afraid of their own mortality should probably avoid the Tikker watch. This unique timepiece was created by Fredrik Colting and is designed to tell you the current time and how much time you have left to live. The watch calculates your time of death via a questionnaire you fill out. You take the number you get and then subtract your age from it. The watch will then begin counting down how much (estimated) time you have to live.

As far as style goes, the Tikker watch is essentially a normal digital watch with a unique display. The devil truly is in the details as opposed to the design, however. The watch is meant to inspire you to do more with the time you have. Colting has taken Tikker to Kickstarter where the project is seeking $25,000 of funding.
