The Netflix and Chill Button

Sep 30, 2015

Netflix knows that it’s being used for more than just binge watching Lost, as “Netflix and chill” is one of the hottest rising terms on social media this year. For this reason, the company has created their very own button, The Switch, which prepares you for a night of Netflix and chill almost autonomously.

With just one press of this button, it can dim your lights, activate your phone’s Do Not Disturb function, orders takeout, and turns Netflix on, ready for streaming. The device is powered by a Particle Core, an Arduino-compatible development kit with on-board Wifi, and an IR transmitter. While it’s more intended as a marketing ploy for the streaming network, it’s a brilliant novelty idea that could land in some homes if priced right. But if the device isn’t quite up to par on your spectrum, you can submit your ideas to Netflix for new things to add in the next model. [Tutorial]
