    -- Like any good Silicon Valley company, Netflix has the occasional Hack Day, in which it allows its engineers to forgo their other responsibilities and just build something cool. It turns out Netflix engineers have some pretty awesome ideas. Today, the company released a handful of videos of its favorite Hack Day projects, including a Chrome extension that lets you watch Netflix in a mini screen while you do something else and a way to match your movie to your room's ambient lighting with Philips Hue bulbs.

    Netflix did of course provide the "most or all of these projects are just fun and will never actually be a part of Netflix" disclaimer, but if it doesn't eventually make the floating, flying, gesture-based Oculix interface for the Oculus Rift, then, well, everything is ruined. This is how I want to find movies in the future.

    Check out Oculix in the video above — and click below for the rest of the Netflix Hack Day projects.
