The world's first edible wearable device had unveiled at the recent Tokyo Marathon 2015 which is one of the largest Marathon events in Japan. The device can measure the runners' heart rate, lap time and display of figures onto a real banana, amazing?


Whether you are on time, on track, fast or slow, this 'banana' allow you to check your lap time and display of heart rate throughout the race. Last but not least, you get to eat the banana at the end of Marathon.
