You know how you get those collars for dogs that squirt lemon in their nose every time they bark (to stop them barking) well.. this would be a hat that squirts warm coffee in your mouth every time you yawn. Battery powered with little electronic sensors to detect the yawn sound & your open mouth, and a refillable flask to put the coffee in around the back somewhere. And, I don't know, maybe it could have rubber flippers to slap you in the face with as well. Slap!

       Jim -- ever tried methedrine?

       Well, it's only available legally on prescription here in the UK, and even then only when you ask very very nicely. So naughty you for suggesting it. Slap!

  

       Also, I'm thinking you could have coin-operated versions of these hats which you hire overnight. The noise they'd make when you inserted a coin would be "SsChing, Mneep!"

[Robert] It was very nearly "The Java Balaclava"

       I'd slap you in the face for a minimal charge.

       Helium: you could work for rent-a-bitch in the slapping department.

       Have a croissant, Jim (how about a Hands-Free Headset to eat it with?).

       Fortunately, I don't have that much trouble recomposing myself after choking of warm coffee. However, do you have any accessories to keep me from coughing it on my keyboard?

       There'd be an optional clear plastic scoop that fits around the chin & mouth area to prevent spillage - useful if you are prone to sneezing or drooling, too.

       I don't know about any one else, but when liquids are squirted into my mouth when I yawn, I strangly begin to emit odd gurgly noises and rendered unable to breath for a large some of seconds. Perhaps is the liquid where released on the head,and a strong voice said "wake up!" or the like.
