Wristwatches are going out of style but you can bring them back. Even if they’re not really functional. Or make any real sense. Introducing the Ant Watch, a wristwatch ant farm.
At first glance, the Ant Watch looks like a normal watch but after a moment you can see something is up with the hands. Then there’s the realization that there are no hands. Only ants. It’s a mini ant farm, on your wrist. It doesn’t tell time and you have to feed it. It holds 3-5 harvester ants that live for up to six months.
Your portable ant farm isn’t over at a half of a year. It comes with a year supply of ants. The company will send you new ones every four months so you can keep your “time piece” ticking away. It’s supposed to remind you of the subtle beauty of nature and the closeness of the natural world but really, it seems more like a metaphor for the working world. Go through the motions but ultimately, nothing matters. The Ant Watch is $59.
