Have you ever been in a mid-Netflix binge, snuggled warm beneath your blanket and thought to yourself: “Damn, if I start one more episode, I might fall asleep. I also might not. I wish there was a way Netflix could detect whether or not I’ve foraged into nap world and immediately pause the show so I don’t have to risk losing my place”…?
Enter: Netflix socks. The perfect stocking stuffer for the holiday.
By using a “sleep detection system on a popular method called actigraphy,” the DYI foot mittens trigger “a signal to your TV that pauses Netflix” when your ass hasn’t moved in a suspiciously long time. That sounds like the greatest seventh grade science project like, ever.
Detailed instructions on how to knit your Netflix socks can be found here.
Because only Netflix could make knitting cool.
