At the invitation of Fast Company, Argo created three concepts to improve the Netflix experience. This concept included a bit of hardware called the Night Light which I whipped up overnight for the occasion.
“We’ve all been there. Whether it’s with your family or your friends, finding something to watch that will satisfy a group of three or four people can feel next to impossible, especially as you’re browsing through the Netflix grid.
Part of the problem is the tyranny of the remote: The person who’s holding it has total control over where the entire group can look for a show or movie. But what if it didn’t have to be this way?
To solve the problem of what to watch in a group, Argodesign envisions a Netflix-branded pico projector called Night Light that turns your coffee table into an interactive version of the Netflix interface. Then everyone can sit around the table and browse through shows at their own pace. The rule of the remote would be over.”
