You have to make them yourself but still: Netflix has unveiled a design for some amazing socks that'll send a signal to your streaming device and pause if you doze off. What a time to be alive!

Making the socks requires downloading a pattern from Netflix's instructional page, with designs from shows including Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Orange is the New Black or Jessica Jones. Users insert a sensor that can tell if you haven't moved in a while; if it thinks you've conked out on the couch while binge-watching, a red light in the cuff of the sock will send a warning before pausing if you've become immobile.
