Intel has deployed a connected "smart" coffee machine in its Swindon canteen. Powered by Intel's core i7 processors, the coffee machine provides real-time analysis of what's the hottest-selling beverage and offers users customised choices. 

The coffee machine detects when someone stands in front of it and offers the menu on a touch-screen interface. The machine also plays music and diffuses coffee bean smells. But more importantly, it has a gender detection software to distinguish between males and females and provide Costa with insights into what sells and what doesn't.
