I was checking my morning tech news feed and I came across a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to create and sell a watch that can show you (via countdown) how long you have to live, down to the last second. Don’t ask me how it works, but the creators think a life-expectancy monitor on your arm may just motivate you to stop procrastinating and cross those items off your bucket list before time runs out… literally.
On the other hand, an actual death watch may be too “glass is half empty” for some to handle, and they would much rather view life as still full of promise and potential, instead of feeling pressured to get things done.
Whichever camp you find yourself in one thing is for sure, with technology you can start making changes now that could quite possibly extend your life beyond the assumption of some fancy watch algorithm. Here are my 6 gadget picks that may just add some time back to your life.
