getting freaky

The rise of the hook-up app on smartphones is just another foray into our long-time tradition of having sex with robots. Hook-up apps are smartphone programs that blend digital data with physical world geography all in the name of meeting people getting laid.

For example, the SceneTap utilizes cameras placed in bars equipped with facial recognition technology to tell your smartphone, in real-time, the number of people, the male-to-female ratio and the average age of those in a particular bar. (woah)
