You have likely heard the term “Netflix and chill” by now. Well, apparently Netflix has decided to create their own “Netflix and chill” button. They even posted the schematics online so users can build one themselves. It is actually a useful button.
It is called “The Switch”. Pressing it will instantly put your phone into Do-Not-Disturb mode, silence all incoming calls and messages and if your house has connected lights, the button will also be able to dim them to create a movie-watching atmosphere. Or a “chilling” atmosphere. Or both.
It will also be able order you a pizza and turn on Netflix, which is probably the most useful feature for Netflix fans. This button was shown off at the 2015 World Maker Faire over the weekend. It might make for a fun project if you have some free time one day or weekend.
If you have no skill or experience making something like this, you are out of luck because Netflix will not be selling the actual device. However if you are good at this sort of thing, head over to Netflix’s website for the instructions. It should make your movie watching more enjoyable. The chill part is up to you, however you intend to handle that.
