Netflix has teamed up with Pittsburgh-based digital agency Deeplocal again to create an open source connected device for the holiday season. No, it's not another pair of socks.

Timed to the release of Fuller House's second season, the agency decided to revive Mr. Bear (Stephanie Tanner's best friend in the original series) and added a glowing heart. When hugged, the bear can connect with another bear in another house (or even another country, according to the video below) and cause its heart to glow red as well. 

When both bears are hugged, Netflix automatically turns on in both homes.
