Chuckle charge

An experimental ticketing system at the Teatreneu Comedy Club in Barcelona sees the ticket price being determined by how much or how many times you laugh.

Tablets with facial recognition software have been mounted in the seats and can apparently detect when you laugh. Chuckle and you get charged. The going rate is €0.30 per laugh, up to a maximum of €24.

The system reportedly works and other establishments are now looking at using similar technology.
