According to an article in the Japanese Mainichi Daily News, employees of Keihin Electric Railway Co. will have their smiles photographed and rated by smile-measuring software each morning. Those with low scores -- based on eye movement, lip curvature and wrinkles -- will be advised to "lift mouth corners" etc., and will carry a photo of their best smile to emulate.
