The flying belt was an personal levitation device that employed artificial gravity technology. Flying belts were invented by the Slaver Empire over a billion years ago.

A flying belt was stored in one of the Slavers stasis boxes. After the box was discovered, some time before 2269, the technology used in the flying belt became the basis of creating the artificial gravity field used on starships. (TAS: "The Slaver Weapon")

Based on TOS: "Space Seed" and TNG: "The Neutral Zone", Earth seemed to have independently developed artificial gravity around the 1990s, decades before first contact and sharing of technology with alien civilizations.
