Tinder pranked attendees at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) into thinking the dating app had cracked modern dating with ‘Tinder VR’, a double-sided virtual reality headset designed for two people.

The company said in a blog post that it was inspired to “reconcile the fact that VR is the antithesis of human connection”.

“It seems like everyone is launching a VR headset nowadays. As a tech company, we felt inspired to create one of our own. But here’s the thing: our mission has always been to get people together to have real experiences in the real world. So how do we reconcile the fact that VR is the antithesis of this?”

“We created our multi-user VR headset with the Tinder experience in mind. Real people having a real experience, and like the app, it only works with a double opt-in. Although the Tinder VR headset is only on display at our booth at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) . . . the real-life experience of connecting with someone is always available on Tinder.

“Welcome to the future. It’s all about human connection. Give it a try—you might enjoy it.”
