ticketing boxoffice New App Tells You Which Friends Are Toxic

Lauren McCarthy and Kyle McDonald want to help you hang out with people who don't drive you crazy, so they created an app called pplkpr. The app links up with a wristband that measures your heartbeat and then monitors the change in heartbeat, while ranking your friends according to how happy, anxious, or mad they make you feel. It will also tell you which people it thinks you should hang out with more often, because those people don't make you feel like garbage [via FastCoDesign].



McCarthy and McDonald did a test run of the app on select students at Carnegie Mellon University, with one participant saying it gave him an excuse to not hang out with people who just makes him feel shitty, and another person said she was shocked by how many of her friends make her angry.

On the one hand, it's a sad reminder of how often we choose friends who aren't necessarily great for us to be around, but on the other hand, this could be a really optimistic app that helps validate your feelings that "Jeff seems like a dick," and try to push you to hang out with Sara because she always makes you feel great.
