In the Netflix spirit of learning and experimenting, we listened to the bold ideas shared by users to find the next thing they really wanted in a custom Netflix experience. We created a real, working prototype for the socks, the ultimate marathon-watching companion, and released DIY instructions for makers to create their own.
The latest gadget in the MakeIt initiative, Netflix socks, were inspired by the Fitbit hack from the Netflix engineers as well as user submissions. Netflix socks ensure that you don’t miss any of your favorite shows when you fall asleep.
The Netflix socks became the second viral hit of the MakeIt campaign.
Embraced by tech outlets (Mashable.com, Engadget.com, TheVerge.com) as well as lifestyle press (EOnline.com, GQ.com, Refinery29.com), and national news (USAToday.com, NBCNews.com, Good Morning America). International press included outlets from the U.K., Hong Kong, Mexico, Italy, Brazil, and Australia. They successfully became a mainstream topic of conversation during the busy holiday season.
