The Tinder-O-Matic helps you hack your way to love with a 3D-printed finger
Tinder helps you find love at the touch of a finger, but this one is 3D-printed.
Tinder hacks are right up there with wearables when it comes to tech trends. Shortcutting your way through the swipe-based dating app to a glut of matches has become all the rage among Silicon Valley types and programming enthusiasts alike. But it isn’t enough to simply auto-like your way to an inbox full of unsuspecting women. Now techies have taken to one-upping each other with different tricks and coding procedures.
But why restrain yourself to the stale approach of hacking the app’s software when the exciting and imaginative world of 3D printing offers so many options? Hacker Andrew Sink asked himself the same question, apparently, when he decided to apply the technology behind his 3D-printed finger to pressing the like button on Tinder. Thus, the appropriately named Tinder-O-Matic was born.
The mechanism can “like” a new profile every four seconds, resulting in approximately 900 right swipes an hour. For those of you in an area thick with Tinder users, this tiny machine gives you the ability to match with over 10,000 individuals in only 12 hours.
While the auto-matching is easy and saves time, it’s the filtering on the back end that becomes difficult and negates the hack. Our advice? Stick to old fashion swiping. It’s more entertaining and less work.
