According to Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, more specifically something referred to as Time Dilation, someone in motion will age slower relative to someone that’s not moving. So your co-worker sitting at their desk is actually aging faster than you whenever you head to the break room to get another doughnut. And now, using your iPhone’s GPS capabilities and the Lorentz Transformation, this simple Einstein’s Pedometer app can actually caculate how much time you’ve gained while walking about. Of course even if you spent your life circling the globe in a supersonic fighter jet you’d still only add mere thousands of a seconds to your life, so you better make sure to live that borrowed time to the fullest!
