Swipe Right (or Left) Using Only Your Pulse
An Apple Watch app from innovation agency T3 will let users match on Tinder entirely hands-free
If your mind’s telling you no, but your body’s telling you yes… you might be swiping right anyway on the Apple Watch: A new app for the watch, Hands-Free Tinder, will soon be making matches using only your heartbeat.
The app, created by U.S. innovation agency T3, harnesses Apple Watch’s newly-available SDK, a toolkit for app developers that includes a feature able to measure users’ streaming heart rate.
Ben Gaddis, chief innovation officer at T3, tells PSFK that Hands-Free Tinder is a way to use biometric data in order to optimize a user’s time swiping one way or another.
