Douwe Egberts, Yawn Machine JOHANNESBURG, South Africa -- Douwe Egberts recently perked up weary travelers in South Africa's busiest airport with a vending machine that dispensed a free cup of coffee when they yawned.

Facial recognition software detected the exact moment of the yawn, and triggered the delivery of a cup of hot coffee. The machine was at the center of Douwe Egberts' Bye Bye Red Eye campaign at O.R. Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg.

See the vender in action on YouTube.
