Transcript for Netflix 'Smart Socks' Pause Your Show When You Snooze
Time for "Pop news" and I love this story. I need to share with you because forget netflix and chill. It's all about netflix and snooze. Streaming service has dreamt up a genius invention, legit, guys. These are socks that determine when you've dozed off and immediately pause the show that you're watching. So amazing. This is real. This is not -- you're not being punked. We've all been there, six episodes into a binge-watch. Six minutes in, Lara. George, you drift off. Have no idea where you left off. You don't want to have spoiler problems. These smart socks use technology that monitor movements like the same thing a fitbit does, monitors your movement so you stop moving, your movie does too. Stop moving your feet. When you sleep, when you're watching TV you might be fidgeting or eating then you fall asleep it senses that stop in motion. I mean unless you're like me -- I was going to say, I do that, the restless leg syndrome. Oh, yes. You do stanky leg in your feet but your movement goes down significantly and pauses your movies and I want to say netflix you're the best. Rooting for the rest of my family. I know, isn't it amazing. Putting on a binge-watch, immediately I fall asleep. Also in "Pop news" this morning, glad we're all discussing our personal lives. If you're not sleeping well, tell your partner to move over and make room for rover. A new study shows a man's best friend or cute kitty could leave you more feline well rested. People who slept with their pets felt more safe, secure, consequently had a better night's sleep. Makes perfect sense. Cuddling up to a cat isn't for everyone. Cat or dog, please, cat lovers, do not write me. 20% of pet owners declined of pets wandering, whimpering or hovering above my face with hot dog breath. The typing was overwhelmingly positive giving new meaning to pet nap. Children, not the same effect, not at all. Get out of my bed. Like break dancing in your bed.
