Microsoft lauches a site to measure your mustache

Earlier this year, Microsoft launched a new facial detection API called Project Oxford, and it has since been incorporated into its Bing search engine to give users a way to estimate how old a person is in a photo. Now the company has launched a new site that uses the same API to measure the amount of mustache is seen in photos as well.

The site,, was created by a number of Microsoft team members as a Garage project to "show what a healthy imagination and a Project Oxford API can build." More importantly, the site was built to help the Movember Foundation, which launched a number of years ago to raise awareness of men's health by asking men to grow mustaches during the month of November.
