Featured Tech Kickstarter: Tikker

Tikker

The wrist watch that counts down your life!

by Rebecca DeRosa

Top Mobile Trends has decided to feature a unique technology Kickstarter. How about a watch that counts the years, days, and second of your life? Yes, you read that correctly! We thought it seemed kind of weird – morbid, really. Then we looked into it further and jumped right on the bandwagon after watching their kickstarter video. It’s all based off of psychology, with an edge of fun. Tikker instills in your to make the most of your time, because you truly do not know how much time you have left – or maybe you can go on believing that Tikker determined your death date – but regardless, it is inevitable. But you can’t let that get you down!

 

Imagine someone told you that you only had 1 year left to live. How would that change your life? 

For all of us life comes with a best before date, and one day we’ll find ourselves at the end of the line. Gee, you’re thinking, this is really depressing!  But, wait, there’s good news too! While death is nonnegotiable, life isn’t. The good news is that life is what you make of it – and oh boy can it be beautiful!

All we have to do is learn how to cherish the time and the life that we have been given, to honor it, suck the marrow from it, seize the day and follow our hearts. And the best way to do this is to realize that seconds, days and years are passing never to come again. And to make the right choices.

Anger or forgiveness? Tic-toc.

Wearing a frown or a smile? Tic-toc.

Happy or upset? Tic-toc.

That’s why we’ve created Tikker, the wrist watch that counts down your life, just so you can make every second count.

 

Product development

Everything started with the realization that time would one day end. After the initial shock it dawned on us that instead of feeling dread over it, we should use it to our advantage, and create the lives we really wanted.
