Cats are big in Japan.
With dozens of islands full of cats as the primary residents, cat cafés in nearly every prefecture, and feline mascots fighting against bullying, COVID-19, and so on, that is not an overstatement.
Their kawaii (Japanese for cute) appearance makes a lot of people very happy.
So of course an oversized 3D cat will go viral after debuting on a billboard in one of the busiest parts of Tokyo.
The feline is visible on a 61,69 square-metre curved 4K LED screen in the Shinjuku district, reports The Independent.
The giant cat is amazingly lifelike if you’re looking at it from the right angle, and also follows the standard feline routine.
The cat puts on a performance of waking up in the morning, stands and meows throughout the day, and then dozes off on its paws at night:
Although, as mentioned before, it very much depends on what angle you’re looking from, which Gizmodo talks about extensively alongside a GIF to show you what they mean.
Broadcasting has been tested since last month:
It appeared for one minute every hour, with impressive realism, developed by “d’strict”, which specialises in immersive technology to create art.
Here’s another video for good measure:
While it’s just a cat, for now, the billboard company promises more 3D content starting on July 12, according to a press release.
