Falling asleep while watching Netflix can be a real drag (I know, first world problems, right?). Waking up in the middle of an unwatched episode of your favorite series has the potential to spoil the entire season (ask me how I know).

Fortunately, Netflix has just the solution to help you avoid a similar fate - a pair of socks that'll hit the pause button when you doze off (I'm not kidding).

The Netflix socks aren't an actual product you can go buy but rather, a tutorial on how to build your own. You'll need some basic knitting skills and perhaps some experience working with electrical components; Netflix even supplies pattern suggestions based on some of its hit shows including Bloodline, BoJack Horseman and House of Cards, just to name a few.

Is it silly? Absolutely. But what else do you have to do with that Arduino board?
