File under ‘things we never knew we needed’… and are actually pretty sure we still don’t: this robot/hat/backpack contraption by Japanese ketchup kings Kagome will feed you a steady stream of tomatoes while you go for a run. According to the AFP “The Tomatan is a backpack that can be loaded with six mid-sized tomatoes—enough, say the makers, to power runners through [last] weekend’s Tokyo Marathon.” Because, it turns out, tomatoes are really good at fighting fatigue. The downside? The contraption weighs in at 18lbs, so one might want to consider just packing a banana or two instead.
