Netflix is聽truly trying to take over our entire social calendar. We thought that after the streaming company revealed its聽October debuts and departures聽and shared insight into what episode gets us hooked on a TV series聽that the Internet entertainment giant would, for lack of a better word, chill, for a sec. We were wrong though. Remember the first time you heard the phrase聽鈥淣etflix and Chill鈥? There鈥檚 now an official 鈥淣etflix and chill鈥 button聽that you can hack together to bring your binge watching/couch potato activities to the next level.

While it would be聽uh-mazing if this button was called the 鈥淣etflix and chill鈥 button, its official name is actually聽The Switch聽(guess we鈥檒l have to save that Urban Dictionary term for Netflxing ;) The Switch, which made its debut at the 2015 World Maker Faire this past weekend, is a prototype all-in-one device to use with the streaming service. Think of it as the universal remote for the Netflix generation.

Not currently available for purchase, this maker-made button is an all-in-one: it can turn on your smart TV, open up the Netflix app, dim your Phillips Hue lights, silence your phone, order you food, etc all with the push of one聽button. Yes.聽It聽is聽very DIYable (head to The Switch website for instructions). If you have a聽basic understanding of electronics, web servers and how APIs work, that is ;)

The DIY Netflix companion device (which, in its current state, is a smart wooden box, essentially) is powered by a microcontroller and an infrared transmitter that, when built successfully, syncs with your tech to work together to make your binge marathons聽chill. Whether you end up watching what鈥檚 on your TV鈥檚 screen or not is up to you.
