Netflix Rings Stop Partner from Binge Watching Without You

By Keleigh Nealon, Buzz60

If you've ever had your partner sneak in a few extra episodes of "House of Cards" without you, now there may be a way to stop them.

"Commitment Rings!" And no, we aren't talking about the engagement kind.

A British ice cream company called Cornetto came up with the invention.


Each person wears one of the rings, which have technology inside that connects to your favorite streaming app.

When the rings are close together, it activates the app to play your favorite show -- but when only one ring is around, well, no "Game of Thrones" for you.

Cornetto says it will distribute the rings online, although it isn't completely clear how many rings will be available -- and cheaters can always go around the device by streaming to their smart TV.
