As if technology wasn’t creepy enough let me introduce you to Crystal, an app that mines information from the internet and then outputs a horrifyingly accurate personality profile based on the data it finds. In the video above a group of businessinsider employees try Crystal out and to both their terror and surprise the profile the app gives them is insanely accurate.
Yes, I can definitely see the parallel between this and the Minority Report’s predictive crime arrests. If you feel that your stalking game isn’t strong enough, then the app also offers a LinkedIn plugin so you can data mine your co-workers, potential employees or employers. This is a quote directly from their website:
"My co-workers and friends use Crystal as a means to further understand our relationships between each other; it provides a quick, third-party perspective that helps to reduce group conflicts."

Yep, that quote isn’t creepy at all! So what do you think. Does big brother have enough info about us already or does it need even more help?
