Netflix Socks Pause the Show When You Fall Asleep

 |  |  |  December 17, 2015


How many times have you fallen asleep while watching a show or movie on Netflix? Either you are really tired or the movie is slow. Either way, you are off to dreamland. And Netflix is still playing the un-watched content back in the real world. Well, Netflix has created an online guide for building a pair of socks that will automatically pause a show when you fall asleep while watching.

They use an accelerometer to detect when a person has stopped moving, so that once the viewer is asleep, the socks will send a signal to the television using built-in infrared LEDs. Pretty cool.

The guide also includes knitting patterns inspired by Netflix original series like Jessica Jones, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and House of Cards.¬†They’re perfect for¬†people who prefer Netflix and snore to Netflix and chill.
