As if we aren’t already one tiny misstep away from truly living within the world that Black Mirror has created, the app that was used in their episode ‘Hang The DJ’ was just created as a prototype app.
Now, it’s all for fun and games right now, but still, we’ve gotta say that it feels at least a little bit creepy that a part of this mind fuck of a show has bled into the reality that is our lives.
Already, everything we watch in Black Mirror feels a little too close to home, but now you can actually try out the Coach App for dating, as showcased in the episode, for yourself at home.
The idea behind it all is that couples use the dating app to see how long their relationships are going to last, and the app will tell them exactly how long, be it a few more hours, or another entire year.
If you’re morbidly curious about what that could maybe mean for you and your significant other, then you can head on over to coach.dating and try it out for yourself. All you have to do is copy the link and then send it to whoever you might be dating, and presumably it’s gonna spit out some date for you.
Naturally this means nothing in our real lives and we’ll (probably) suffer no real repercussions from whatever it says, but we now, more than ever, are more concerned that Black Mirror is just a few more steps away from becoming our true reality.
What do you guys think? Should we be scared?
