Love It or Hate It? Life Clock

French designer Bertrand Planes's limited-edition Life Clock (inquire for price) isn't your average wall clock, although it may appear to be at first glance. Slowed down 61320 times, its mechanism is actually built so that one full rotation mimics the average human lifespan, and each minute represents a year. I'm certainly impressed the Planes took the time (hah) to create this, but at the same time it might be too disturbing to hang in my house. Much like the Chrono Shredder, the Life Clock does an eerie and too-accurate job of reminding us of the passing of time.

I think it's depressing as well. And really doesn't help one to live in the present and enjoy "now"... too much emphasis on past and future.

It really is kind of depressing, if your going to remind me how much time I have left, do it in a fun way!

I think it's good concept, but I would not put it up in my house.

I was going to say the same thing about living longer than that! 'd rather spend more time living life and less time being reminded about when I'm likely to die.
