This platform delivers potential lovers in 30 second video chats

Courting a lover in the 21st century generally involves a screen of some sort before arrangements are made to grab dinner or watch a movie. While the dating landscape going digital has matched more couples than ever before, its sometimes missing a more personal connection.

Developed by software publisher Krush, Heystax is a new mobile dating app designed to bring a more genuine touch to the saturated industry of online dating. The platform works by setting up a 30-second video call between matches and uses facial-recognition software to detect nuances within your expression to analyze whether you subconsciously feel as if you’re a good fit. Once your time is up, you can decide whether you’d like to continue chatting with the person on the other end — if both of you say yes, the conversation can continue where it left off, only via text instead.
