47 Examples of Countdown Innovations

From Pregnancy Countdown Chalkboards to Epic Countdown Apps

— August 12, 2014 — Tech
When a big and hugely enjoyable event such as Christmas is around the corner, counting down to the big day is almost as much fun as the day itself. Counting down creates a sense of anticipation and excitement that keeps you going until the big day itself arrives.

There are a wide variety of physical products and virtual apps designed to help you to count down to any event. Of course, the classic example of a countdown calendar is an Advent Calendar, and there are dozens of different kinds on the market.

Now that everything is going mobile however, there is also a good selection of countdown apps out there. Many of these help you set up different events that you can count down to separately to ensure that you don't miss anything, whether it's a birthday, big concert, sporting event or any other event or personal milestone.

Whether you're counting down to the most important event of your life or something irreverent, there's either a physical product, DIY solution or mobile app out there for that!
