'Netflix Socks' Know When You Are Sleeping
Netflix is taking chill to a whole new level with this invention.By Katie Link | December 16, 2015
Netflix has designed the ultimate accessory to make us even more lazy. Introducing "Netflix socks."
These DIY socks solve the don't-want-to-go-to-bed-yet-but-can't-stay-awake-to-finish-this-episode dilemma. Don't pretend like you don't know what I'm talking about. The socks have a sensor inside that automatically pauses the episode you're on if you doze off.
It's a technology Netflix is calling "actigraphy." The device detects when you've stopped moving, a red light flashes and a signal is sent to your TV to pause the show.
