There is a part of human disposition whereby we see shapes or familiar patterns in otherwise obscure or everyday objects. As a child, you probably saw animals in the clouds or monsters in the shadows.

As an adult, we less often seek out these shapes in unusual places, but we're still prone seeing faces in unusual places - a glance at an everyday object and you might see a face smiling back at you. Sometimes these comical faces stick with us and tickle us to the core. 

You'd be surprised just how many gadgets and gizmos feature these faces. Sometimes it seems like manufacturers are doing it on purpose to bring their products to life and give them character but it's usually just coincidence. 

We've picked out a selection of the very best faces spotted in tech for you to enjoy.

When the telephone was first invented and came into use, most people using them for the first time probably pulled a face not too dissimilar to this.

This CCTV camera has seen some things in his day and he's had enough. Now he's armed, dangerous and on the loose. We suggest you don't cross him or find yourself on Crimewatch.

Going at supersonic speeds must be a blast. This jet certainly seems happy about it anyway. Imagine seeing this rear end passing you by as you're high in the sky. Odd thing for a combat aircraft to have a giant happy face on the back. Maybe it's purposely designed that way to calm hostile situations. After all, who'd want to be the one to shoot this cheerful chap down?

This electric sander isn't especially happy about the role life gave him. Sure, there are the perks like all the fun of vibrating and the power he has over surfaces he touches, but is it a satisfying life? His face says probably not.

This light switch is designed purposely to look like a face, so it's cheating the system a little to add it to this list but we love it too much not to. Finding happiness in the little things in life - like turning the lights on and off, is something special.

This lamp is surprised to be lighting the room or perhaps he's surprised to be attached to the wall. We're not sure. Smart design though, we like it. Reach out and touch the gaping wormhole-like mouth at your own peril though.

Doing the laundry is hardly the most thrilling of household chores but this washing machine seems ecstatically pleased to help get it done. He does seem a little on the smug side though and we're not sure how we feel about a smug washing machine.

This cheerful lawn mower is pleased to be of assistance. He's happy to trim that grass. He's pleased to be of service. He's happy to be of some use for a change, rather than just being cooped up in that dark shed at the bottom of your garden.

Ironing is dull. We're sure we can all agree on that matter at least. Though if you had this iron, you'd surely crack a little smile every time you tackled the laundry pile. Getting the creases out of shirts has never been so pleasing.

Coffee is confusing. There are so many different types, flavours and styles. It's no wonder this little coffee machine looks so confused all the time. We'd take pity on it if we didn't need our daily caffeine fix.
