A smart belt buckle that loosens when you've eaten too much may well end up being the most-loved gadget from CES 2015.

Belty is definitely not a gadget you need in your life. That said there are plenty of things we don't need but should definitely buy and Belty is one of them.

Designed by Paris-based startup Emiota, Belty is not what one would call a 'looker'. It's big, bulky and very much looks like something you'd find adoring the belt of a sci-fi action hero.

You'll forgive the looks however because Belty's unique ability is to do what half the nation did post-Christmas lunch, and that's to loosen your belt buckle.

Rather than fumbling through the embarrassment of doing it yourself, Belty will calmly and politely loosen your belt for you.

As you can imagine, it's not in production and sadly may never be, but the fact that a group of people came together and made it speaks volumes.
