Way back when, in another time called 1998, Wired published a story about a Bluetooth-enabled device called the Lovegety that was a pioneer in the location-based dating scene. Made by the same company that created the classic Tamagotchi toy, the Lovegety had three separate modes that a user could choose from depending on what they were looking for from the opposite sex. The device would then search for other Lovegety’s within a five meter radius that were using the same mode.
Things have come a long way since then. MIT has comprehensively studied location-based dating, though in different terms: reality mining. In fact, co-founder of Sense Networks, Alex Pentland is the senior faculty member with the project and it looks like he transfers much of the project knowledge to the data-crunching Macrosense platform we’ve talked about before. The iPhone has spawned a mobile revolution that has resulted in LBS dating service Skout, and today the new location-based dating iPhone community: HIVromances.com
