LookAlikeFinder.com now in beta
When I wrote about this new website on February 15, it just said "Coming soon" when you clicked on it.
I had a look just now to see what their definition of "coming soon" was/is, since a recurring theme in computer/internet-related companies is the vaporware-to-be phrase, "real soon now."
But lo and behold, they've moved past "under construction" and have up what appears to be a potential blockbuster of a concept.
The idea is, instead of fantasizing about a movie star you wish you could date, you instead tell the website whom it is you've got the hots for and it then uses proprietary image-recognition software to find real people who've signed up and who most resemble your idol.
Very, very cool.
Then you send the person a message and don't hold your breath waiting for a response. Or is that too realistic?
I mean, why wish you could go out with Beck or Beyoncé or their ilk: now you can get as close as you're ever gonna get.
No, I haven't signed up, so don't go looking for my doppelgänger there just yet.
