Will be found as attractive while maintaining the natural identity.

But PIQme is even more…..


Social Dilemma

To evaluate our own beauty we compare ourselves to images in the media – which are hugely influenced by the beauty industry.

The problem is that these images are not real – they are re-manufactured to society’s beauty standard that is comparable to perfection.

But despite this fact, these images are still considered as a measure of beauty in society.      

It is what we consistently compare ourselves and want to look like.

Failing to conform to these unrealistic and unachievable standards has created a significant psychological problems for men and women around the world – in the form of extreme self-criticism, low self-esteem and confidence, depression and loss of identity.

It is also the cause to why most people of all sexes, ages and cultures across the globe feel they look unattractive – especially when they see themselves in photos.

This is the social dilemma that exists in society today and the insecurities that people live with on a daily basis.


Social Movement

PIQme is also a ‘Social Movement’ that unifies and empowers its community of users across the globe to:-

  • Challenge society’s unrealistic definition of beauty – a standard that has adversely effected so many people’s lives; and
  • Re-define the ‘Face of Beauty’ by creating a new realistic and achievable standard.

The people’s message of what true individualistic beauty means to them will be echoed to the beauty industry and the world to take notice.

With this we can finally have a ‘behavioural’ and ‘belief’ changes towards beauty in our culture - leaving society’s unachievable standard a thing of the past and make a positive impact on the world.

Finally then we can stop self-criticism and start to feel empowered and connected with our fellow human beings as we learn to identify and embrace our own natural beauty.

PIQme MVP

Below are images of four subjects that have been captured using the PIQme MVP.

Although the results are already better compared to a standard camera, these should be reviewed as ‘proof of concept’ only and as validation of our current technological capabilities.

This is because of a number of reasons however the fundamental one is that a realistic beauty standard has not yet been defined due to the lack of a database – and so not applied to these images.

The integration of the rules that govern a re-defined beauty standard is the fundamental component that allows PIQme to capture flattering photos
