If you haven’t heard the term, “Netflix and Chill”, I encourage you to google it or search for it on Instagram for the backstory. In a nutshell, it is our generation’s “Dinner and Then- Some” equivalent.
Netflix, being the ever so hip trend spotter they are, have capitalized on this, and are now actually developing a device to make societies new favorite past time, a full blown experience! Yup…It’s being dubbed “The Switch” by it’s creators. The Switch is a wireless button, which is powered by a microcontroller and an infrared transmitter, that will sync with any of your connected devices (like tablets or smartphones) and a Philips Hue wireless lighting system.
This device, depending on how its configured, will allow you to silence or ignore calls, set mood lighting, and even order your favorite food. The possibilities are pretty interesting honestly. So much so, Netflix actually provided a step-by-step instruction guide to build your own Switch today!
So the only thing standing between an automated experience with your significant other is a little bit of ingenuity, and a DIY attitude! Interested in creating your own? Check the video out and show us your creations in the comments below!
