This Robot Hand Guarantees It Can Help You Find True Love
It takes an open, willing player to take part in the Tinder game. But just as some find it fun, casually swiping left and/or right, others take it quite seriously and are determined to find the love of their life. Because you don't want to make a mistake. A mistake is never good.
Going on Tinder is already as easy as it gets. There used to be a time when you had to put on a bra, get out of your house sweats, stop eating ice cream and actually make yourself look presentable but now you don't even have to leave your bedroom. Hell, you don't even have to get off your bed. But it just got even easier.
Short of Prince Charming or Mrs. Right knocking directly on your bedroom door, there's a robot that can find you your perfect partner. Or so it claims.
Nicole He, a graduate student in New York University’s Interactive Telecommunications Program, has built the Tinder robot of your dreams. Not so creatively called the True Love Tinder Robot, the robot analyzes your physical reaction to the person on your screen ("basically, how sweaty your palms get") and guarantees it will find you love.
Throughout the process, it will make observations on your involuntary decisions and she's as sassy as Siri, making snide remarks little comments like, "You can trust me because I am a robot," "Judge this person," and "You're not very picky, are you?"
If you thought Tinder was tough, the True Love Tinder Robot is even more harsh. But anything for true love, right? Plus, no more haphazard swiping! Count us in.
