For anyone who has ever woken up to find that they have dozed through the finale of their favorite television show, Netflix has found a solution. The subscription TV network recently launched Netflix Socks — the knitted wearables with designs that celebrate the various Netflix Originals series. The socks can be embedded with homemade tech that sends a signal to their TV to pause Netflix when the wearer dozes off.
