There’s this new robot, the result of the Wearable Tomato Project, called Tomatan. You wear it while running, and it feeds you tomatoes. No, really.
From the Rakyat Post:
The “Petit-Tomatan” has a delivery tube attached to a mini-tomato holster worn on the runner’s back, and even a timer that prevents the user from over-indulging and depleting their supply too quickly.
Eating Tomatoes While Running
Now I’ve run a little in my day and there are two things that I can think of I don’t really need on a run:
- The added weight of an 8 kg (almost 18 pounds) robot on my shoulders.
- The feel of tomatoes sliding down my throat.
But still, I hope this thing takes off. It’ll be easier to pass all those people on the course.
Tomatan in Action
The whole thing is part of a marketing campaign from Kagaome, a Japanese tomato company.
