Making its grand appearance: The Tokyo race Via techcrunch.com This small humanoid robot is intended to be strapped on your back and carried throughout your run- like a toddler getting a piggy-back ride (except for longer than 1 minute). Kagome's researcher, Shigenori Suzuki will don the Petit-Tomatan, a smaller version of the invention, at the Tokyo Race this Sunday; the Petit weighs approximately 7 pounds and fits snuggly on a runner's shoulders (no blisters!).
