Consider your life complete, because Netflix just did the most meta thing ever.

The company's engineers actually made a "Netflix and Chill" button. Yes, seriously. The streaming service unveiled its prototype over the weekend at the appropriately titled 2015 World Maker Faire, to what we imagine was a standing ovation. They're calling it "The Switch," presumably because "Netflix and Chill Button" was just a little too inappropriate. 

The button is basically just a mood-maker—a user flips a switch that automatically dims the lights, puts their phone on do not disturb mode and prepares Netflix for streaming. And then, well, use your imagination. 

What's even better is that you can make one yourself! Well, technically, you can make one yourself if you're at the very least an amateur electrician. Netflix created an equipment list and even instructions, so that all the builders out there can go chill wild.

Unfortunately for most of us, we'll just have to admire the idea of the button, because let's be honest—we're not going to start fiddling around with transmitters anytime soon. But there's good news! If Netflix-ing and chill-ing is one of your greatest passions, we might have just found your one true soul mate. 

Let us introduce you to...this man. What you're looking at below is his real and true Tinder picture, which just might be the most genius Tinder picture of all time. His username is vrpowell2000, and he told Mashable that he originally thought up the idea as a Halloween costume, but decided to make his Tinder profile as ridiculous as he could. And it worked! "I quickly learned the way to a lady's heart is through humor," he told the site.

You should probably swipe right before somebody else does.
