Tinder Users Tricked : Meet The Sexy Robot Catfishing Dudes At SXSW

Tinder users looking for love were tricked in to swiping right by an attractive female robot.

Lovelorn blokes at the tech-festival SXSW were delighted when they logged into the dating app Tinder to see a beautiful face peering back out at them.

But despite the robots physical and vocal charms, the woman was actually an artificial intelligence designed to trick them into watching a film advertisement.

The scam was first noticed by an AdWeek writer, whose “friend” was delighted to make a Tinder lovematch with a raven-haired beauty.

The robot asked its victim a few questions of the sort you’d expect from a keen (or slightly creepy) Tinder trawler.

“Have you ever been in love?” the robot asked.

“What attracts you to me?” it continued.

The “friend” in the story tried his best chat up lines in a bid to talk the silicon sexpot into going onto a date.

“I thought you were absolutely gorgeous,” he gushed. “And you have innocence.”

“But we all know I could be totally wrong,” he added hopefully.

The ‘bot then thanked the hapless Mr Lover Lover for the compliment and asked him to look at her Instagram.

In normal life this invitation generally leads to an exchange of unspeakably sordid images, but instead the poor chap was sent to an advert for a film called Ex Machina starring the very lady he had been talking to – Swedish actress Alicia Vikander.

“It toyed with my emotions so hard,” he said.
