Deadline App Claims To Be Able To Predict Your Death
A 99-cent app called Deadline can predict when you’re going to die. Well, perhaps not exactly when; as Deadline states on its Apple page, “no app can really accurately determine when you will die, so consider this a way to motivate yourself to be healthier, and consult a physician as necessary.”
Available for Apple devices with iOS 8, the Deadline app uses HealthKit information like your gender, age, blood pressure, sleeping habits and level of exercise to create a countdown of the years, months, days, hours, minutes and seconds that you have left to live. If you’d like a constant reminder of your own mortality, you can even keep your “ticker” updated on the home or lock screen of your phone.
Gizmodo claims that Deadline is nothing but a “generic algorithm” that motivates people to live a healthier lifestyle. This is probably more realistic than an app that can predict the exact second you’re going to die; nevertheless, don’t let that stop you from anxiously watching the app’s clock as it slowly counts down the few remaining years of your life, leading you ever closer to the grim arms of your eventual, inevitable, predictable death.
