Wearable dating site AKA beer goggles

One of my friends described his psychology lecture as being replete with people wearing huge sunglasses, mini skirts and ugg boots, who would not know psychology if Freud kicked them in the face.

Being summer sunnies are part of Australian attire - Slip-Slop-Slap-Seek and Slide. Watching a video on Augemented Reality farming recommended by Eric Rice, I wanted to make a facial recognition based dating site goggles. If you jumped on oasis, you would fine 500+ girls looking for guys within 10km from you or vice-versa. Why not pick up those profile pics and build up haar templates trained to pick them up in the crowd in the mall - go and deliver your newly found and unique pick up line instead of the stupid one-liners oasis lets you send.

Australia speak for these could be beer-goggles , lacking a better name. If you are not into beer you could have whiskey, champagne or vodka goggles - whatever is your poison.
