## The Golden Ratio

Throughout history, the ratio for length to width of rectangles of 1.61803 has been considered the most pleasing to the eye. This ratio was named the Golden Ratio by the Greeks. In the world of mathematics, the numeric value is called “phi”, named for the Greek sculptor Phidias.

Proceeding the Greeks – the Great Pyramid of Giza is estimated to be over 4600 years old and incorporate the Golden Ration throughout its’ design.

Maybe the most famous of both artists and works are by Leonardo Da Vinci who called it the “divine proportion” and featured it in many of his paintings.

The Golden Ratio also occurs in nature, in the patterns we see in sunflowers, pine cones and so on. This is largely because one of the best ways to efficiently pack things tightly together is using the Fibonacci sequence.

The Golden Ratio from Wikipedia

The Golden Beauty Meter takes a picture of a face and measures key facial features to determine how close they are to the Golden Ratio (1.61).

Using these measurements – The Golden Beauty Meter can determine facial attractiveness using a formula found repeatedly in nature, and used by hedge fund managers, scientists, artists,….and biologists (and covered by Oprah and the BBC) called The Golden Ratio.

Enough of the silly apps that either provide a random number, rate your ugly or nerd levels or require trying to match dots or align to a grid – the Golden Beauty Meter is fun and easy to use, and is based on real math.
