How Wearable Tech Can Make Dating More Enjoyable
Design interns break down barriers for first meetings using intelligent jewelry.
There are plenty of ways to meet people online, or connect with them on your smartphone, but meeting them face-to-face is still one of the hardest parts. To make it a more enjoyable proposition, two interns for the San Francisco design studio LUNAR, came up with some novel wearables to make the process a little more exciting and intuitive. One of the jewelry-like device buzzes when there is a compatible partner nearby, and the other lets everyone know what you’re into.
Marie Noury, the first of the interns, designed a pendant called Wizz that gathers information from all your social networks, and uses that to figure out who you might like. It uses this information to send you an alert when there is someone with the same interests in the area around you.
