The "Escape From New York" countdown watch gets reimagined as a smartwatch
Remember Escape From New York? In the movie, the protagonist, Snake Plissken (memorably played by Kurt Russell) goes on a rescue mission being given a gun, a radio, and a countdown watch. A bright creator got the idea to recreate the watch for modern times upon seeing the movie again, and behold, the Lifeclock One is live on Kickstarter.
At $399, the Lifeclock One is pricy even for a smartwatch, so it seems like only fans of the movie will be really enticed by it, considering there are cheaper and more understated options out there. Then again, none of them have this unique look or would look particularly impressive on Kurt Russell's wrist.
