netflix-and-chill-button

Netflix may call this little gadget the “Netflix Switch,” but for all intents and purposes, it’s the world’s first Netflix and Chill button. Unveiled at this year’s World Maker Faire, the contraption from Netflix allows users with a little electronic and API know-how to fire up Netflix, order some food, and, when it’s “chill” time, silence your phone and dim your lights. And, assuming you can solder, build, and program the switch yourself, you can design yours to do other clever things, as well. Check out the instructions and build your own.

Whether you’re trying to refine your archery skills or just get a leg up on the competition when it comes to office warfare, the BB Sniper mini crossbow from Uncommon Carry will fit the bill. Handmade out of stainless steel and equipped with a self-loading chamber, the BB Sniper is designed to hurl projectiles like toothpicks or mini BBs with surprising accuracy at a range of about 30-50 feet. Make sure to schedule some time for target practice because this addictive little crossbow can do some damage. Have fun, but avoid the sensitive areas.
