The Drive Awake App Directs Sleepy Drivers to the Nearest Coffee Shop

The Drive Awake app has been created to help make the roads in Thailand safer. The app was designed by the Thai coffee chain Cafe Amazon and uses eye-tracking technology to tell when a driver is dosing off. For starters, the phone must be mounted at eye level for the app to work. Once the app detects that you've closed your eyes a loud bird call will sound.

After the bird call your phone will direct you to the nearest Cafe Amazon location. The app is a clever piece of marketing and it will hopefully lead to safer roads in Thailand. Here's hoping Starbucks steps their game up and develops something similar to the Drive Awake app.
