It happens all the time. You're on the couch watching TV after a hard day of work, taking care of your kids and the house, and you think you'll just close your eyes for a second.

Suddenly you wake up, hours later, and the TV is off and that show you were watching is gone. Or, that movie you were watching is over, and you have no idea when you fell asleep. There's never been a way to find your place again or record that show - until now, that is.

Two teenagers from England have created a wristband that can pause your movie or record your show for you, and it doesn't require manual activation. It's called the KipstR, it uses sensors in the band to detect when you start dozing off and then saves your movie or show for you. It resumes them when you wake up.
