Have you ever been watching a movie or a show on Netflix and fall asleep and that movie or show keeps playing? This can be super annoying because when you fall asleep you might not know where you’re at in the movie or what episode you’re on, so when you wake up that movie might be finished or the show can be 10 or more episodes ahead from what episode you were on. Well guess what, Netflix has solved that problem!

In a 24 hour hack day Netflix has once and awhile employees came up with a new Netflix product called Netflix Socks. When wearing these socks while watching Netflix it sense when you fall asleep so it will pause the show or movie you’re watching so you don’t lose the episode or spot you are at in a show or movie. In these socks Netflix put a sleep detection system in them so it uses a accelerometer that can tell when you’ve stopped moving for awhile (when you fall asleep). The socks have a LED light in them and it will flash red to tell you that you’ve been immobile, and to tell you that it will pause your show or movie. But if you move at all it will cancel the countdown to pause your movie or show. When hearing all this technology that would be put in these socks they may not sound comfortable at all, but they’re the same as any other kind of sock.
