If you've ever passed out during a Netflix binge, and woke up to not remember where you left off, or —even worse— in the middle of a spoiler, this is for you. Netflix created smart socks that automatically pause your show when you fall asleep.

The sensors detect when you haven't moved for awhile, you get a flashing LED as a warning, and then if you don't move, your show is paused. Voila, no more missing episodes of Orange is the New Black.

Are you "comfortable around a soldering iron"? Learn how to make the socks (both the smart insert AND knitting patterns for Netflix Originals socks!) over on the site:
