This incredible website will scan your face and turn it into a song with a trippy music video

Be honest - back in secondary school, did you write your classroom crush a song/poem/ballad? Was it soaked in cheesy lines about the sent of their hair (strawberries) and the colour of their eyes (brown)? 

Well your feeble attempts at a personal creation have just been kicked to the kerb by this website, Face Melody

Using a webcam (or uploaded picture), facial recognition technology and some complicated algorithms, Face Melody will write you a unique song based on the shape of your face - complete with a hypnotic acid-drenched 'music video'.

Face

A promotional stunt for Japanese skin and beauty group IPSA (you'll want to use Google Translate or similar to navigate the site), Face Melody's tunes are psychedelic at best. In addition to your own tune - which gets its own bonkers name - you're also presented with some 'stats' about your face: you get a 'Smile Level', 'Face Balance', 'Face Colour' and 'Lightness' rating, all of which help determine the patterns of your song.

Will it bag you a number one single? No. But it's a darn site better than your long-lost love ballad, I'm all about Rachael.
