Anyone who recognizes the name Piper Chapman knows the perils of snuggling up with a hot cheese pizza, a cheap bottle of pinot noir, and a fresh season of the latest show on Netflix -- only to wake up with an empty glass in your hand and four skipped episodes after you passed out. Yes, it happens to the best of us. But it doesn't have to happen at all thanks to some genius socks developed by Netflix that'll stop the show for you. Not spilling your wine is all on you.
The high-tech socks, simply dubbed "Netflix socks," use a built-in accelerometer to detect when you've stopped moving for a while, like when you've started to snooze. The prototype socks also include a red light that flashes when the censor thinks you're asleep, and if you don't respond by moving, the socks will send a signal to your TV pausing your show. Obviously, they're probably not the most accurate tool to rely on and seem a bit like overkill, but you have to admit they're pretty damn cool.
