Piggybacking robotic feeds you tomatoes when you run
We’d have a brand new winner for the “world’s silliest wearable” award. Japanese juice vendor Kagome has teamed up with the mechanical artists at Maywa Denki to construct Petit-Tomatan, a piggybacking robotic that feeds you tomatoes (which reportedly assist your “antioxidant energy”) when you’re operating. This goofy helper was meant as a publicity stunt for this weekend’s Tokyo Marathon, nevertheless it’s a totally fleshed-out system — there’s even a timer in order that you do not filter out your dietary provide too shortly. When you’re doubtless by no means going to see any critical athletes donning contraptions like this, it does make the runner’s previous-faculty water bottle look a bit of outdated.
