Maybe Future Models Will Come With A Red Zone After 65…


The Life Clock was designed by Bertrand Planes and instead of ticking away the minutes until your next break or the end of the work day, it actually ticks away the years of your life. The clock mechanism has been slowed own 61,320 times so that it measures an average human lifespan instead of half a day, though I’m not entirely sure what the minute and second hands represent. (Days and minutes?)

While the idea of having your impending death staring you in the face is kind of depressing, since the clock face only shows 82 84 years, I guess you can consider it a real victory if you manage to squeak by to 83 85. (Apparently only 7 of these clocks were made, so you can probably forget about ordering one if you were actually interested.)
