Death Watch Marks the Time of Your Life

Feeling overwhelmed by our Society of Simulation?  Do you need something that reminds you to make the most of your time? The answer is yes to both those questions, according to Swedish inventor Fredrik Colting. He designed Tikker, the wrist watch that, in addition to normal time, counts down your life. It shows the amount of time you are estimated to have left in years, months, days, hours, minutes and seconds, just so you can make every instant count. The date of death is based on a series of personal and medical questions.

As Colting explains: “The occurrence of death is no surprise to anyone, but in our modern society we rarely talk about it. I think that if we were more aware of our own expiration I’m sure we’d make better choices while we are alive”.
How would this peculiar object change your life?

Ine Geevers: #YesNaturally was about co-evolution and partnership. How to become friends with o.a. bacteria, microbes and viruses. Because yes, they can be deadly and vital at the same time.
