In this film, the remaining time to live is displayed on the forearm of a person, an idea that inspired a designer, Nurdinov, to realize a concept shows like that. In his idea, it is not displaying your life time remaining on your arms, but rather the time it is.

And this is the first time that Nike is doing something of the sort. Keep in mind that the API is only available for developers who participated in the hackathon at SXSWi 2012 in Austin, Texas however.
