Rate your moustache for Movember with Microsoft Garage’s newest creation

Microsoft’s arguably most creative division at the moment, Microsoft Garage is back with another invention, and this time, it’s to improve your facial hair, or actually, the only part of it that matters: the moustache. Welcome to MyMoustache.net, a new internet phenomenon in the making.

Part of Microsoft’s collaboration with the Movember Foundation in order to raise awareness of men’s health and showcase the power of machine-learning, the site uses complex functions to determine the length, form and awesomeness of your moustache and calculate your ranking in..yadayada, you know what? Here are some pictures, this is a thing to be seen:

The app itself is certainly a good way to show off Microsoft’s software and cloud capabilities, while solidifying Redmond’s image as a fresh, innovative company finding back its charm.
