Eat on the run with this wearable, tomato-feeding robot

Eating-on-the-RunsNever-Been-SoWeird-744x420Always looking to wow passerby on your morning jog?

It’s guaranteed all eyes will be on you if you’re sporting a Tomatan, but they certainly won’t be checking out that fine, runner’s physique. Developed by a Japanese vegetable juice company, it’s perhaps the world’s most uncomfortable accessory for the fitness market.

Tomatan is a robot that can be worn as a backpack. Weighing 8kg (18 pounds), it features a tomato shaped head with a mouth that opens to dispense the tomato into circular metal arms that then come down over the person’s mouth to feed them a tomato.

The running requirement even takes all the fun out of something feeding you.
