These Cozy Socks Turn Off Netflix Once You Have Fallen Asleep

 

We've all been there, you're several episodes deep into a late-night Netflix binge when sleep gets the better of you and you doze off, and ultimately missing several episodes of your new favorite show and losing your place. Now there's an awesome, if somewhat technical, solution to this. Netflix has posted instructions on their website for how to make a cozy pair of socks that will pause Netflix when you fall asleep. You need to fit these socks with an accelerometer to detect when you stop moving, which in turn is hooked up to infrared LEDs that will send a signal to your TV once you've fallen asleep. Pretty clever! Check out the photos and video below to see the kinds of socks you could make!
