The Wearables Race Is Heating Up

Marathon runners will have another food to nourish their bodies on the go.  Not to be outdone by Dole, Japanese tomato distributor Kagome has developed its own device to deliver the red fruit straight to your piehole.  The machine, known as Petit-Tomatan, sits on the runner’s shoulders, and periodically reaches into its back pocket to pull out a juicy tomato.  Tomatoes are not only rich in nutrients, but also contain a high amount of water, which is perfect for keeping a runner hydrated.  Though I’m sure that extra energy will end up being used on the 18-pound robot on their back.

  1. I think eating a tomato while running will make me puke. I’ve heard of jellybeans and I can get behind that!

      Probably still better than some of those protien running gels, but yeah tomatos while running sounds really gross.

    That satisfying crunch when he bites into the tomato… exactly like eating a tomato. Where can I order one of these guys??

    I guess I don’t understand how you don’t end up with gross sticky tomato water running all down your chin.
