Would You Buy Watch That Counts Down Your Life?

A man by the name of Fredrick Coltin has invented one of the scariest watches, ever. Not only does the watch tell you what time it is, but it also tells how much time you have left on the Earth.

That's right, the 'Tikker' can figure out how long you are expected to live. All you have to do is answer some simple health questions.

Questions like, "Do you Smoke?" and "How often do you work out?" You know, the obvious questions. The watch then determines how much time you have left before you die.

Obviously, it's not 100% accurate, but it's still terrifying. You could die at anytime, but what this watch does is tells you how long you might live if an accident doesn't happen before then.

It sounds terrifying, but it could be beneficial. Some people claim that it might make people healthier. They might realize that they can't just sit on the couch and watch Pawn Stars all day.

The developer has started a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for assembly, testing and placing order for parts. You can buy a "test" version of the watch now for $39.

So, would you buy this watch? Or would you rather not think about death?
