Face Research

I came across an interesting site via BLOGLESS, Face Research, which allows registered users to partake in facial attractiveness experiments. The interactive demo lets you create 'average faces,' in the likeness of Sir Francis Galton's composite photographs, which he used to identify human types by averaging the facial features of a certain demographic of people.

The site has an array of portraits to choose from to make an average face, so I selected the faces I found the most attractive. Here's the first average I made to my liking.

You can also upload your own faces to make it more interesting.
