    Netflix Socks will Pause Your Show When You Fall Asleep.

    You know the scene well. Your ass finally hits the couch after a long day, hunkering down for what you hope will be hours of your new favorite show. However, being an exhausted parent, you fall asleep almost instantly, waking hours later to spoilers because Netflix kept playing one episode after another even though you’d long since tuned out. Fear not, parents. As they did when they started offering countless versions of Spider-Man cartoons for your discerning seven-year-0ld, Netflix has your back. They’ve invented a sock that can sense you’ve nodded off and will pause your show so you don’t have to miss a thing.

    Netflix partnered with Pittsburgh-based agency Deeplocal to create a sock that will know when the wearer has fallen asleep and can automatically pause the TV. From Adweek, Netflix explains, “We’ve based our sleep detection system on a popular method called actigraphy. 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.”
