Friday Catblogging: Giant 3D cat on Tokyo billboard dazzles passersby

Hikari Hida and Mike Ives report A Digital Cat Is Melting Hearts (and Napping a Lot) in Japan:

The cat yawns here and there, and at 1 a.m. it drops off to sleep for about six hours, resting its head on white paws that hug the side of what appears to be an open-air perch near the Shinjuku subway station. (The three-dimensional look is an illusion created by a curved, 26-by-62-foot LED screen.)

It also talks, greeting pedestrians with “nyannichiwa.” That is a blend of “konnichiwa,” or hello, and “nyan,” Japanese for “meow.”
