Seasoned Netflix users (all of us, then) will be familiar with the pitfalls of a TV show marathon: falling asleep during the best bits, then waking up three episodes later, having to work out where you left off.
Thankfully, Netflix know their audience so well, they’ve invented a pair of socks that will pause the streaming when the wearer falls asleep and stops moving.
Netflix Socks come with an Arduino microcontroller, IR LEDs, a LED indicator light, a battery and an accelerometer, to detect when the on-screen action should be halted.
The socks even come in a variety of designs modelled after original Netflix shows like The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Daredevil, House of Cards, Orange is the New Black and Jessica Jones.
Dibs on the pinot noir pair!
