Tikker watch helps you count down to your death

The Tikker watch counts down to the second how much time you have left to live.

This final note today. You're gonna think I'm making this up, but I'm not: A 'death watch' counting down to the time you die.

It's a Kickstarter campaign -- they ask you a bunch of lifestyle questions and figure out how much time you have left -- years, months, days, hours, minutes, seconds. They're looking for $25,000.
