The Smart Belt 3.0 has another extremely useful feature. You can DIY the size so even when you are between sizes, it can be used. The belt can make a great gift as well as the person you give it to can DIY the size according to his own waist size.

This smart belt was one of the first smart belt ideas to hit the market. It was developed by some students from Rice University. The belt has a unique function – it helps people with epilepsy. It can help parents or guardians to prepare for an epilepsy attack which the belt detects, and sends a wireless notification. This is done through the use of silver chloride electrodes which are embedded in the belt, and these chlorides can detect the changes in the skin conductance. By noticing respiration rate change and sweat build up on the skin, the belt can determine if an attack is about to occur.
