A new kind of commitment: No more watching TV shows away from your partner

Italian ice cream brand Cornetto has come up with a brilliant way to prevent cheating in the 21st century: The Commitment Rings won’t let you continue watching your favorite series on Netflix unless your partner is present.

Couples can select the series they want to commit to using a mobile app. When the two rings are near, the app will make the series available to view on the users’ preferred video streaming service.
