Netflix/Fitbit hack pauses your movie if you fall asleep

It uses the data from a Fitbit to determine when you’ve fallen asleep while watching a streaming movie, and pauses your flick at that spot.

Story at TechCrunch: http://techcrunch.com/2014/02/27/netflix-fitbit-hack/

CreateTech committee member Jason Snyder writes in iMediaConnection:

"Drones delivering Domino's, augmented reality, the industrial internet, the age of the algorithm, real-time bidding, geo-everything, convergence, and intelligent machines. These ideas and the exponential growth and adoption of technology are no longer the musings of futurists. They are business as usual, and they're here."
