In the mood for fun, students and faculty put a twist on the popular 1960s TV show The Dating Game during Charm School Activities in IAP 1996. Called the Infra-Red Dating Game (a.k.a. Love Lab), this MIT-inspired game lets a student bachelorette question three bachelors (fellow MIT students) who are hidden from view. Unlike the Dating Game, the Love Lab lets the bachelorette see an infrared image of the bachelor. Aided by science, the bachelorette narrows her sights on the target and, by the end of the questioning period, picks her date. MIT Professor John Hansman serves as infra-red consultant. Taping took place live in the Center for Advanced Educational Services, Building 9, Room 450. This video includes multiple contestants. At times, the roles reverse and bachelors quiz bachelorettes.
