Vending machine gives you free coffee if you yawn at it

Why has nobody thought of this before?

STOP THE INTERNET, we want to get off.

Enterprising coffee company Douwe Egberts has produced a coffee machine with facial recognition software, which detects when you stand in front of it and yawn.

And everytime someone yawns at it…

It dispenses free coffee…

The machine was installed at OR Tambo Aiport in South Africa, where the company thought people might be most in need of a caffeine boost.

While confused people tried their damndest to get a cup out of the machine, it only released one when a yawn was detected.
