tomatan-title Are you hungry while running? No probem anymore! Wearable robot Tomatan can feed feed you as you run. Japan’s largest supplier of tomato juice and tomato ketchup Kagome developed with Maiwa Denki this cute robot for marathon runners. Why they use tomato instead of fruits? “Tomatoes have lots of nutrition that combats fatigue,” said Dr. Shigenori Suzuki. Inventor of Otamatone Maiwa Denki was focused mostly on its visual design said Novmichi Tosa. The machine resembles a humanoid robot – tomato head with moving jaw with deposit of tomatoes.wereable-tomato Image above shows alpha version of Tomatan that was considered insufficient because of required participation runner. Unfortunately, the final device weighs around 17.5 pounds (8kg) and can only carry six tomatoes. When the runner feels like it’s time for a nutrient boost, they simply tug a lever in the robot’s foot, which causes a tomato to pass from the dispensing chute into the robot’s hands. Its arms then rotate forward, bringing the fruit to the runner’s mouth. To see it in action, check out the video below. YouTube Preview Image

    Hey guys

    “Bens Birthday Celebration” requires a Tomatan for our 2nd Annual rendezvous scheduled next March 2017. It seems like quite a product!

    Please can you send estimated cost with delivery to Dushanbe, Tajikistan?

    Thanks so much in advance.

    Hello, me and the fellow wübs (you may not of heard of us,yet.) are interested in purchasing a model of tomatan for our annual Friday night conserves, I feel it would help us get women by the truck load, which would help as the vast majority of us are, surprisingly, pathetic virgins.
    If you could get back at any point I would be delighted and it would have to be delivered to Manchester , UK.

    Yours regrettably, Harris (Wub member, conserve owner)

    Thanks guys
