The Netflix And Chill Button Is A Real Thing Now, Bless Our Millennial Hearts
If anybody ever doubted that ours was the generation that would change the world, look no further than the Netflix and Chill button, aka the Netflix Switch. It was created by Netflix itself, and it optimizes your entire Netflix viewing ~experience~ to such a brilliant extent that I'm afraid the engineers are inside of my brain. Its four settings work to dim the lights to set the mood, put your phone in "Do Not Disturb" mode, order your favorite delivery grub, and, of course, start up your Netflix queue. It's magical enough that I'm pretty sure I could connive even Chris Pratt into Netflix and chilling with me. Are we ready for this kind of power?!
Netflix engineers debuted this miracle invention at the 2015 World Maker Faire this weekend, but this isn't just a button to lure men with famous space abs to your house. It's also a very intriguing educational exercise for the future engineers/Kimmy Schmidt addicts of the world. Netflix engineers broke down step by step exactly how they built and customized their Netflix Switch, and also created instructions for how to make your own Netflix Switch. You can be the captain of your own Netflix and Chill destiny, everyone.
Once you finish recreating what is possibly the best thing that has ever happened to mankind, you can get your Netflix swag on like these humans in the video they released, showing how it works:
Set The Mood
You'll know you got it just right when your Rubik's Cube starts to dance.
Silence The Rest Of The Universe
There is only Breaking Bad now.
Get Your Grub On
Welp, now I just want to stare at that rotating GIF and salivate like a dog until someone brings it to me. Blergh.

EVERYTHING IS THE BEST, FOREVER. Here is the button in action, for all the Netflix and Chill inspo you need:
