Tired of passing out and missing your favorite Netflix episodes? Just in time for Christmas: NETFLIX SOCKS. Yes apparently falling asleep during your binge-watching of “The L word” is a real threat. So Netflix has attempted to solve the issue by giving out detailed instructions on how to build your own socks to pause the show when you fall asleep. From Netflix: “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.”
Remember, you can’t buy these (yet). My personal theory on this? Nobody wants sued when your they burn a hole in your couch (or your foot) So…you’re going to have to make them. HERE ARE THE INSTRUCTIONS. A trip to Radio Shack and a call to your high school shop teacher may be necessary.
