Vending Machine Dispenses Free Coffee For Yawns

October 7, 2013


This is a coffee vending machine at the O.R. Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg. It was created for a marketing campaign by Dutch coffee company Douwe Egberts and South African ad agency Direct. The machine contains a camera and facial recognition software that allows it to detect when a person is yawning and reward them with a hot cup of coffee. Will it also reward you for pantomiming a BJ? One blogger plans to find out (and is hoping for a whole pot).

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to Martin, who doesn't drink coffee anymore because he said it makes him crazy. Whatever, that's just the lack of caffeine talking.
