Yawn and This Coffee Machine Will Give You a Free Cup of Joe

Yawn-activated coffee machine

This Douwe Egberts coffee machine looks like a typical machine, but you’ll soon realize that not everything is at seems when you take a closer look. It doesn’t have the usual slots where you’re supposed to push your coins or paper bills in, but it’s equipped with a facial recognition system instead.

What We’ve Always Wanted: Free Software That Makes Our Keyboards Sound Like Typewriters

By David Ponce

In my particular case, I was maybe 5 or 6 years old the last time there was one in my house, and watching the above video instantly brought back memories from back then. In the video you’ll see an Apple device running this piece of free software that works in all applications (email, web, word, etc.) and makes authentic sounds of “letter keys, spacebar, backspace, carriage return and scroll up and down.” It has no other purpose, nor does it need one. It works on OS X only for now.
