i-browse

eye contact singles bar

When you enter the i-browse bar, you have one eye photographed, close up, creating a full frame image. This is combined with an alias, some personal details, along with the usual “male seeks female”, “male seeks male” etc and sent to a Jukebox, which will print out the i-Browse cards. Patrons enter their preferences, make their selections, print out the results then cruise around the bar with the perfect license to gaze searchingly into each other’s eyes, looking for a match.

       I never did the bar scene, so I don't know how well this idea would work in practice. For me, sustained eye contact has some meaning beyond examining the shape, color, etc. of her eyeballs. Wouldn't that powerful means of non-verbal communucation would be lost here?

       I think I'll stick to the speed-dating bars. Oh, wait, I'm married already.

       This takes the akwardness out of meeting people. Rather than going to a table full of ladies to get a bunch of dirty looks you can now justify the reason to stare in her eyes.

       I just really wouldn't want to be walking around with a picture of an eyeball.

       I'm just think of the unsuspecting soul who walks in and asks the bar in general: "Is there an Iris, here?"

       Iris Kasmack?

       Would it specifically ban school children from coming in?
