An Open Source Coffee Machine 99

An anonymous reader writes "The Open Source Coffee Machine [video link] is a recycled coffee machine, controlled by a PC running Beremiz, and using some MicroMod CANopen I/O nodes from Peak-System. This machine have been prepared by Peak-System and Lolitech for SCS-Paris-08 exhibition. It served free coffee during four days at Peak-System's booth, and has been donated to IUT of Saint-Dié-des-Vosges, France, so that students can have fun practicing automation."

I would actually rate the 'waterless' as more sanitary since, unlike a handle flush you never need to touch it.
Around here, I've found quite a few motion-triggered auto-flushing urinals, nicely solving that problem. Sometimes the motion sensor is a tad too sensitive, though, flushing before you're done. At least it doesn't splash. ;-)
