Brilliant? Offensive? Relevant? New Looksery app promises to reshape your appearance on the fly

TechCrunch writes that Looksery (presently seeking funding via Kickstarter) is

a clever application that lets you change your facial features, add funny effects, or transform your face into a 3D character in real-time… [It] offers tools that let you give yourself eyes of a different color. Or you can make yourself look all-around better, with specialized filters that let you soften your skin, give yourself a thinner face, change your chin and neck shape, change your nose size, make your eyes bigger, and even remove your pimples.

Stuff like this is, in my long Photoshop experience, a cultural minefield. What do you think?
