bladder alert belt

wear belt, be alerted to your need to go.

a tight belt with USB connection that rings a bell and produces an alert on your monitor when you really *should* be relieving the pressure on your bladder instead of just doing 5 more minutes work.

it’s so hard to drag yourself away from your work when you’re on a roll…

       I'm not sure how this would distinguish between the tension produced by a full bladder and that produced by having an extra pastie for lunch.

       Lose the USB, and go Bluetooth and I'll bun it.

       The built-in biological alarm works quite well for me I must say.

       Worn low enough and with an absorbent lining you would not need to drag yourself from...Just what is so pressing that you can't drag yourself away to go to the little girls' room po?

       predictable!   

       oops, lurch I need to look at that.
po, Mar 19 2007
  

       A good idea for the workaholic, but I hate to think of what the mechanics of something like this would involve (i.e. bladder probe).

       something quite simple and non-intrusive. just a pressure sensitive device below the tum so that hippo's pasty doesn't set it off.
po, Mar 20 2007
  

       It can sense [hippo]'s pastie when it... presses against ... you? po?   

       Quite a device! (+)

       I think it would be quite possilbe with a small ultra sound device and sensor....but calibrating it might be very interesting.

       I'm going to ask; what job is so enticing?
ColonelMuffins, Mar 20 2007
  

       Perhaps you could attach it to an adult diaper, (Dependsish), just in case of a 'malfunction"?

       What about a device that actually let you stay where you are and it simply transports the urine off to the loo by itself.   

       I suppose that'd be taking the piss.

       I'm thinking Peltier-pants and yellow ice cubes, for some reason.
