Another Dating Site?

From Tinder to, online dating has become an accepted part of our society. 1 in 10 Americans have used a dating site, while 40% of Americans know someone who have met a spouse or a partner online. However, all of these sites and apps have their limitations. It’s almost impossible to fully get into a relationship with someone in a different country, because the time and commitment it takes to actually meet up with them can take its toll on a relationship. It’s also impossible to know how your partner will react or act when they finally meet you in real life — are they actually like the person you thought you knew, or has their personality changed completely? Even for dating locally, how can you be sure your relationship will last without risk of wasting weeks or months on dates, dinner bills, and sour feelings?

What if you didn’t have to be limited by distance? What if there was a way to know if you’re actually compatible with your partner, even before you meet face to face?


Introducing Prntr — a faster, smarter way to find The One. Combining rapid prototyping with the world of online matchmaking, prntr provides a way for you date anyone, anywhere. We’ve developed a state of the art 3D scanning and printing device that helps you find your match, anywhere across the world. Once you’ve found a special someone, test out your compatibility by printing each other as realistic androids and date each other for up to 30 days.

There are lots of advantages to rapid prototyping when it comes to industry. You can quickly iterate, allowing you to make changes without having to fully commit time and money to a single design. You can fully realize a design, allowing you to test if and how something works. You can minimize design flaws, so problems don’t occur further down the line. What if you could apply these advantages from rapid prototyping to building lasting relationships?

With Prntr, you are given the chance to meet them face to face any time you want. You can easily prototype your relationships, without needing the huge commitment of time and money. You try out the relationship on your own terms—meetings can be planned around your schedule and dates can be to your preference.

Traditional true love stories, where boy meets girl by bumping into her in the street no longer have to be the only way to find The One. You can increase your chances of finding someone compatible by getting matched up with your future love by using our algorithm. Forget sharing an umbrella in the rain with a stranger — your next romantic meeting will be holding your partner for the first time, even if they’re halfway around the world at the same time.
