iPad app measures brainwaves to see if couples are a good fit

The Tokyo Game Show had one company that showed off an iPad application that measures the brainwaves of a couple to see if they are a good fit.  This short video clip does not go into any detail about what brainwave measurements are taking place.  I wonder if it might be trying to see how similar the brainwaves are, as I have heard that couples can have their brainwaves synchronize, though I question how detailed the instrument for measuring brainwaves that they are using can get.  I wouldn't be surprised if instead they are measuring the part(s) of the brain that are responsible for things such as attraction.  Couldn't that just be verbalized instead?
