Event Report : Demonstrating Digital Signage at Neko-ichi Neko-za

EVENTS

Neco Republic, a merchant on Rakuten Ichiba (online shopping mall), conducted a big event for the purpose of reducing abandoned cats in Kobe. 

Rakuten Institute of Technology developed two cat-specialized digital signage systems in collaboration with Neco Republic.

There were approximately 1500 visitors that came to our demonstrations during the event. We deeply appreciate the great turnout.
