TECHNOLOGY giant Apple has unveiled a new kind of production line worker that only needs feeding every other day.
As part of its ongoing commitment to innovation the company has shaved six inches off its Chinese assembly operatives and altered their metabolism so that they require less food.
A spokesman said: “The challenge for us has always been how to make our workers more compact without compromising vital components like hands and eyes.
“Then we realised they didn’t really need their feet if they were going to be sitting down all day. That was the eureka moment.”
Adjustments to the workers’ digestive tracts mean that they absorb nutrients more effectively than the previous Worker 6.1 model and can run for two days on just a banana and a handful of salad leaves.
A brand new Apple Worker SE, known to his family as Li Qiang, said: “I am tired.”
