So, there is no shop where you will buy these devices with Netflix’s own brand mark and safety hazards or anything, those are do it yourself projects continuity that started with a Netflix’s event called “Hack Day”, where in a period of 24 hours several engineers participate to create a new device related to the streaming service and the company’s software; an activity to engage people into innovation and support for their individual ideas.

Thanks to its success, goals like Netflix’s Personal Trainer were finally shaped. In the official website of Netflix you can find the “Make it” section where all current projects are shown with a well explained guide of how to put it all together bit by bit. One aspect that is needed beforehand is that all followers of this DIY project need a good piece of knowledge and experience with electronics and programming in order to accomplish without many issues the final product. Nevertheless besides the how to- guide there’s also a pre-programmed basic sketch of the program so users about to start can have something to work on and then customize at will.
