You may remember the hilariously inaccurate age-guessing tool released by Microsoft earlier this year. Now, the company is taking another shot at their photo-recognition tech with a tool that can analyze your emotions based on an image. Though, not always correctly.

Unveiled at their Future Decoded conference in the UK, the software works by scoring the faces in any given photograph on a range of emotions. It calculates the “amount" of anger, contempt, disgust, fear, happiness, neutrality, sadness, and surprise in your facial expression using Microsoft’s “Emotion API.”

Like the age recognition technology, it looks like this tool is pretty hit-or-miss. But that doesn’t make it any less amusing. You can test out the demo for yourself here
