Netflix Develops New Tech That Turns Humans Into Remote Controls

Netflix is cooking up new technology to give its users a simple way to navigate thorough titles on the beloved streaming service: just use your head, literally.

The below video features some of the engineers over at Netflix showing off their 2017 Winter Hackday achievement, a Muse brain sensing headset that’s been hacked to browse and allow users to select a show with a simple nod. Like many companies who hold hackdays, employees had just 24 hours to propose and execute their idea with the possibility for it to be a product in the future. The device has been dubbed “Mindflix,” and it’s pretty amazing to see in action, even though it has the potential to devolve us back into one of these.
