A dating app for literal monsters exposes the bias in our swipes 

Two game developer has created an online dating simulator to reveal some of the shortcomings in the matching algorithms that are used by the most popular apps. The app is called MonsterMatch.

In the app, players create their own mythical creature and configure all aspects of the character such as body type, facial features, and name.
