PHOENIX (CBS5) -
A Los Angeles company is developing a wristwatch they said will help keep track of how much time you have left on Earth.
It's called the Tikker, and founder Frederik Colting said it's not meant to be a morbid product. Rather, it's designed to bring people to realize they should focus their lives on what makes them happy.
"I should call my mother and tell her that I love her, or I should stop being a lawyer and become a surfer. Because my time is ticking and I should make every second count," said Colting, noting the watch could make people more aware of the positives of life.
Users answer a simple questionnaire about their lifestyle, age and race. The watch then calculates your time of death, which is measured by the second on your wrist. Colting said it doesn't factor in accidents and is only an estimate.
The company has only one prototype, but a successful Kickstarter campaign raised more than $100,000 in less than a few weeks. Colting said he hopes to have the final product ready for purchase by April of 2014.
