The tech world is full of wacky, weird and wonderful things. Every week, I bring you three such stories that catch my eye. Enjoy!
We've seen some strange apps before, but this one might take the cake. It's called Cuddlr and - as the name suggests - it helps you find someone to cuddle with.
It works like this: Log into the Cuddlr app with your Facebook account (you have to have Facebook to use this app) and browse for potential partners by name, photo or their ratings. You can then send a request and they have 15 minutes to respond.
If an invitation is accepted, you can see the other person's location on a map, so you can track each other down, or find a place to meet.
Sound creepy? The app's founders encourage users to keep the experience G-rated. From the Huffington Post:
What happens when you meet is up to you. The founders encourage users to keep the experience completely platonic. "Unlike some other apps, Cuddlr is strictly about PG-rated experiences. Keep the cuddle a cuddle!" the app's introduction reads. The app suggests lying together in a park, window shopping, or just hugging.
