Beltwinder Remote

Loosen your belt without embarrassment

Do you often have to loosen your belt after you sit down? Do you feel embarrassed when you have to try to "secretly" adjust it while on a bus, at a restaurant, etc? When you get up do you have to tighten it again? Then you need The Beltwinder Remote.

This is an electronic belt with a remote control that you keep in your pocket. The remote control has two easy-to-distinguish buttons: loosen and tighten. Simply press a button and the belt will silently wind looser or tighter so you can enjoy a big meal without cutting off your circulation, or a quick sprint without worrying about your pants falling down.

Never wear ugly elastic pants again -- The Beltwinder Remote is here.

b) get a stretch belt.
c) don't eat so much.

       and what happens if someone hacks into your remote's signal ? +

       Yeah...The signal must be weak, so it only works when within 3 inches of the belt buckle.

       Why would anyone need a remote?! How lazy does one have to be to have a remote when he/she could press a button on the belt, which would be maybe four cm away from one's pocket? How far can one person really get from her/his own belt? If anyone responds to the remote part of the invention with a disapproving taking of one's lord's name in vain, I suggest it be thoroughly hyphenated.

       Nice idea. However I recommend a new title for it. HALFBAKERY REMINDER TO DIET AND EXERCISE. (I say this as I nibble on some almonds at my desk).

       Even slim people can suffer from belt-itis. Sometimes putting the belt on a little tighter than your waist size is the only way to keep your pants up because you lost 20 more pounds and you are a size smaller.
