People love Twitch plays Pokemon. People love giving their friends unsolicited dating advice. Put them together, what do you get?

What it does

We stream Tinder onto Twitch. Then users can comment on Twitch chat to vote on whether or not to swipe left or right on the person. Every five seconds, a robot hand will tap yes or no to the person based on the direction with the most votes.

How we built it

Intel Edison + Python Server + Node + Twitch Chat <3

Challenges we ran into

Our Edison died while making this Devpost entry (1 hr before deadline). Also robotic fingers are not easy to detect by phone screens.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

It works? Kind of.

What's next for Twitch Plays Tinder

Make conversations on Tinder through Twitch Chat??? Kappa
