I am now completely convinced there is no better time to be alive than now! You want to know why? Cause we have Netflix which is the most awesome thing but that’s not the only good thing. In fact, what this post focuses on is Netflix Smart Socks. Yes socks by Netflix can determine when you fall asleep and not just that they also pause your show so you don’t miss a thing. How awesome is that? These socks are invented by Netflix but not sold by them, you got to DIY. Netflix has published a new set of instructions for anyone to use, for those nifty socks. Netflix seems to think binge-watchers will find them particularly useful. No doubt that you’ve got to be really smart with knitting skills and a penchant for electronics and stuff to make yourself a pair, but once done this can be of great help.
To be precise you will need components like an Arduino microcontroller, infrared LED’s a battery, etc. All of this is required for a monitoring unit that’ll be wrapped in a wool felt and slipped inside on of the socks. The programming bit is necessary to connect the unit with your entertainment setup.
