死亡手表
                                                              Wear your death date on wrist
 
先是出现了一个能预测你双亲何时去世的网站;现在有一种手表,不仅能预测你将何时去世,而且开始了死亡倒计时。
First there was a website that predicted when your parents would die; now there`s a watch that not only predicts when you will die, it also begins counting down.

使用者首先要填写一张疾病史的调查问卷,然后根据问卷的综合结果减去他们的现有年龄,就得到了他们的死亡倒计时数字。这一数字被输入到手表Tikker中,倒计时就开始了。
Users fill out a questionnaire about their medical history before subtracting their age from the overall results to get their death score. This score is entered into the Tikker and the countdown begins.

 

Tikker又被称为“死亡手表”,是瑞士发明家弗里德里克·科尔廷发明的。科尔廷绝非出于病态的意图,他把这款手表称为“幸福手表”,并称他的设计意图是帮助人们更好的实现生活价值,珍惜所剩下的光阴。
Dubbed the `death watch`, Tikker has been created by Swedish inventor Fredrik Colting but far from being morbid, Colting calls it `The Happiness Watch` and claims it has been designed to help people make the most of their life and cherish the time they have left.

 

“想象一下如果有人告诉你,你的生命只剩下一年时间,你的生活会发生什么变化?对于我们所有人来说,生命都是一次前所未有的约会。” 科尔廷这样表示。

`Imagine someone told you that you only had one year left to live. How would that change your life? For all of us life comes with a best-before date,` said Colting.

“虽然死亡是不可避免的,生活方式却是可以选择的。我们所必须做的就是学习如何珍惜时间和我们被赐予的生命。把握今天,随心而行。”
`While death is non-negotiable, life isn’t. All we have to do is learn how to cherish the time and the life that we have been given; seize the day and follow our hearts.`
