Always falling asleep during Netflix and chill? These socks will help

We all know Netflix has totally changed the way we watch TV, but even with that, it wants to go one step further. 

Yep, our beloved Netflix has teamed up with streaming website, Deeplocal, to invent a new DIY project… and it's what we've all been waiting for. 

Socks that pause your show when you fall asleep. Genius, right? It's a bit techy so we'll let Netflix explain their new project: 

"An accelerometer detects when you've stopped moving for a prolonged period of time and triggers a signal to your TV that pauses Netflix.

"When it detects that you've dozed off, an LED light in the cuff of the sock flashes red, warning that the pause signal is about to be sent to your TV. Any motion will stop it from firing.

"The accelerometer is very sensitive to little movements, so it's good at detecting when you're just sitting still, raptly watching Netflix, and when you've actually fallen asleep."

Now, it's a DIY project, which you can see here, so you will have to put together the socks yourself, but don't worry as all it is is a little bit of knitting and electronics. 

We're sure you'll be grand.
