A hands-free version of Tinder has been made, which swipes for you based on how your heartbeat reacts to a picture.

The gadget experts at T3 have made a version of the app on the Apple Watch, which chooses the people you match with based on your reaction, using the device's heart-rate monitor.

T3 explain their system, made using SDK developer tools:

When you use traditional Tinder, you’re using your head to choose a match. With this version, you choose with your heart.

All you have to do is look at the person on the screen. We monitor if your heart rate goes up, or if it goes down, to find the perfect match.

An increase in heart rate due to physical attraction occurs because of an adrenaline rush.

The brain sends signals to the adrenal gland, which secretes hormones such as adrenaline, epinephrine and norepinephrine, which flow through the blood and cause the heart to beat faster and stronger.

The app is coming to the Apple and Google Play stores soon, according to the developers.
