It seems quite a while since anyone got excited by anything that Microsoft has done. But here’s a clever little website that is not surprisingly going viral on social media. Called How Old, it allows you to take a picture from your photo library and ‘find out’ from the #HowOldRobot how old it thinks you look – and your gender (in case you’re not sure).

I’ve yet to find out anyone who has been insulted by the robot – like any good robot it likes to flatter its master. But let us know if Microsoft has got this completely wrong with your age or if you’ve just had a hard life.
