Leave it to a male engineer to make it infinitely easier to swipe right on Tinder.

YouTube user James Befurt set up a computer program and an elaborate mechanical apparatus ending in a robotic pointer finger that swipes right on every profile in Tinder. It’s both ingenious and completely lazy, but at some point, one of these women is bound to reciprocate, right?

Of course, if you can’t build yourself a machine to swipe right, just get the proper rock song and start swiping furiously to the beat. It takes more effort, but it feels more personal.Screengrab via James Befurt/YouTube
