Fit or Fugly – Attractiveness is no more a questionable measurement

Taunton, United Kingdom – Ted Nash today is pleased to announce the release of the updated version of Fit or Fugly, the app which was created to disprove the belief that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Fit or Fugly can measure how attractive a face actually is empirically with math and Fibonacci’s Golden Ratio.

For centuries, men and women have done their best to make themselves as attractive as possible to the opposite sex, but up until now, there was no way of determining how attractive a face actually is. The Fit or Fugly app is finally able to answer this much-debated question applying scientific algorithms.

Fit or Fugly utilizes complex face mapping and recognition algorithms paired with fully automatic face detection and anchor point plotting to calculate whether a face in a photo is attractive or ugly. There are no limits to the use of Fit or Fugly as it is equally effective on human faces irrespective of ethnicity, color, age or race. Users get the result depending on the symmetry of key features such as eyes, ears, chin, nose and mouth.

Even though the app is the only application which can boast unique facial mapping technology and real time anchor point plotting it was created more for fun than any scientific analysis and the first version quickly became a new way to joke around with friends or take revenge on a foe. A newly integrated social network allows users to view and meet other people via www.fitorfugly.com as well as rate their own pictures. The new Fit or Fugly design also makes it look more professional and this gives people the feeling that this is a brand new app.

“I am very pleased to have finally released an updated version of Fit or Fugly, we have been developing the equations behind it, mapping technology and full automatic facial recognition for over six months. To have finally cracked the problems we faced during development and to have implemented the new technology into the app is a great feeling. The most important part is the fact that we have found the perfect balance between ‘science’ and ‘fun’ which is why this application is really appealing – some people take it seriously, whilst others can see the funny side!” – said Ted Nash, Founder of Venevi Enterprises.
