Netflix's Newest Invention Is Basically A "Netflix and Chill" Button

Netflix really wants you to "Netflix and chill." According to E! News, the company unveiled a prototype at the 2015 World Maker Faire that will help you unwind in preparation for some binge-watching — and whatever else you want to do alongside it.

The invention is a button that will dim the lights, silence your phone, gear up your Netflix account, and even order takeout. Netflix calls it "The Switch," but a better name might just be the "Netflix and Chill Button."

Going one step further, the company even listed step-by-step instructions for making your own. But, casual Netflix and chillers beware: It looks like it involves some technical skills and serious commitment to build. (And knowledge of infrared patterns and microcontrollers.)

Peek the video below for an overview of The Switch. Better get started soon — T-minus three days to Friday, guys!
