Too listless to swipe on Tinder? Design agency T3 may have the answer.

It has previewed Hands-Free Tinder which uses heart rate data from your Apple Watch or Android Wear device to decide whether you’re into a match or not.

Effectively it’s the potential dating equivalent of those unreliable reality show lie detector tests. But still, you should follow your heart, right?

The developers say the app is ‘coming soon’, but I suspect it’ll need to get a new name before it actually makes its way onto the App Store and Google Play.
