Tinder clone for Apple Watch uses heartbeat to determine matches
What do you get when you marry the Apple Watch heartbeat sensor with Tinder functionality? Why, a "Hands-free Tinder," of course. That's exactly what the concept creators call their app concoction, as it is built on the same premise as Tinder, liking or disliking a potential date, but with a smart wearable twist.

You see, the hands-free Tinder still shows you pictures and profiles, but the developers from T3 plan to use the newly-released Apple Watch SDK to plug into the pulse sensor of the smart timepiece. This way, they can establish the extent to which your heart rate gets elevated when you see a certain picture, even minute changes, and judge whether to "swipe" the person left or right. Minus the actual swiping of course. Take a look at the concept's video below, and tell us what you think about this materializing into an actual app for the Apple Watch.
