Japanese ketchup manufacturer Kagome found a creative idea to promote the nutritional benefits of tomatoes, especially for the runners of the Tokyo Marathon. This original invention could shake up the mid-run fuel snack industry.

The Wearable Tomato Project consists in a robot that dispenses tomatoes, feeding the athletes on the go while they are running. Inspired by the hydration pack that outdoor sportspeople use as drinking reservoir, this product allows a runner to strap on a contraption over his head, and an automated lever moves to dispense tomatoes to the mouth of the runner. Watch the wearable tomato feeder in action:

What is your view on the coronavirus?

Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
