Hilarious concept lets you preview your Hinge date in AR

Dating has come a long way since the old days. You know, when you had to like just meet someone somewhere out in the wild, or else be introduced by friends. First came newspaper classified and matchmakers, then dating apps that allow you to screen a person's interests and selfie-taking skills before you even consider meeting them.

A hilarious new AR concept now suggests taking that to its logical conclusion. By using augmented reality, it would allow you to view a preview of a potential date in your own living room and view them from all sides, presumable to ensure he or she matches the furniture (looking for ingenious apps that already exist? See our pick of the best VR apps and the best iPad Pro apps).
