Averia: The creation of an average font (iotic.com)

I think we've all seen that the average of many faces creates a beautiful face. http://www.faceresearch.org/demos/average

This is an interesting experiment, but it makes a pretty ugly font. It's a muddy in-between that doesn't have the benefits of being a serif nor a sans-serif font.

I'd like to see the averages of similar fonts.
