An App That Counts Down A Woman’s Biological Clock
By John Yong, 29 Jun 2012
Artist Mira Kaddoura has created a mobile app that is able to determine how much time a woman has left to bear children in real time.
Called ‘The Wonder Clock’, women have to simply enter their birthday, and the app will begin a countdown—showing them how many years, months, days, hours, minutes and seconds they have left before they become infertile.
According to Kaddoura, she created The Wonder Clock because she wanted to educate women about fertility and empower them to discuss it openly and not treat it like a taboo.
However, The Wonder Clock should not be used as a medical diagnosis as it has been based on averages.
Instead, it should be treated as ‘an interactive, conceptual piece that seeks to start a necessary and empowering conversation about childbearing.’
Women are also encouraged to share and have conversations with others through Facebook or Twitter.
The Wonder Clock can be downloaded on the iTunes Store for USD$1.99.
