Meet Ripple: A tentacle-shaped wearable device for flirting

This new wearable device is supposed to make meeting people easier. Called Ripple, the device was designed by students at the Royal College of Arts in London.

Using two built-in cameras, the device monitors the environment around you, sending you a signal when someone’s gaze lingers on you. After helping you identify your admirer, Ripple’s tentacles will start moving flirtatiously if it senses there’s a mutual attraction. You can see Ripple in action in the video above.

After all, why keep swiping on Tinder when you can wear tentacles on your shoulders?
