I've often mocked smartwatches for being impractical and not actually filling a need... but that was before I saw this promo for The Ant Watch. It's literally a mini ant farm you strap on your wrist that offers the opportunity to "carry the miracle of life wherever you go."

A quick check of the calendar confirms my suspicions - it's not April Fools' Day yet which means The Watch Co. is serious about the offering.

Should you be so compelled to buy a watch (one that doesn't tell time or do anything for that matter) filled with a few harvester ants, pricing starts at $59 for a basic kit while an investment of $149 will get you a nice wooden version. All order ship free and come with a one year supply of ants shipped to your door every four months.
