voice activated coffee pot

I heard a great story today. I don’t know if it is true, but it is so good it should be!
A research institution opened a new lab building. The proud head of the lab decided to have a bit of fun. So he/she posted a sign in the new break room with the brand new coffee dispenser that said: “Voice-activated Coffee Pot”. It apparently took hours before the bright people in the building figured out that even for them it isn’t time for Star Trek. Person after person would come up to the dispenser, see the sign and say “Coffee”. When nothing happened they would just slip away. :slight_smile:

Of course the story probably sounds better to me because I don’t drink coffee…

“Tea. Earl Gray. Hot.”
