Imagine getting a free cup of coffee just because you're tired. That's what happened recently to weary travelers passing through the O.R. Tambo International Airport in South Africa. A Douwe Egberts coffee machine at the airport wasn't equipped to accept money, but facial recognition software enabled it to recognize yawns. The machine mapped the faces of people standing in front of it, and if they yawned, a fresh cup of hot coffee was immediately dispensed. Sadly, there's no word on when this technology will be available in home coffeemakers.
