Machine Uses Facial Recognition to Give Away Free Coffee to Yawners

Douwe Egberts- Yawn Recognition Coffee Machine

Dutch coffee company Douwe Egberts recently partnered with South African agency Joe Public to deploy a special vending machine at O.R. Tambo International Airport near Johannesburg.

The vending machine used special facial recognition software to detect whether someone was yawning, and then provided them with a free cup of coffee to help them wake up.

I bet you yawned? I know I did.
