Akita dogs are big, fluffy and incredibly loyal and come from Akita prefecture in the snowy north of Japan. Today, Street View can take you there in an instant. Odate city wanted to give visitors a snapshot of the local area and, since Akita dogs are such an important part of the city's history and culture, they called on the help of a hardy pair of working Akita dogs — Ako and Asuka — to give their own unique perspective of a dog's life in Akita by strapping a small camera to a dog-friendly harness on their backs. Adorably, you can see their fluffy ears and curly tails as you pivot around in any spot.

Housetsu Sato is a wool artist in Japan who just wants you to be a cat so he started making wearable cat heads for people who want to cosplay as cat-headed human hybrids.The heads are made of wool and look incredibly realistic if you don't consider how big they are, and the eyes look like they're following you wherever you go. All the heads are individually handmade, and the short-haired cat heads can be completed within a month. You can even get a head of your own cat made if you send the artist a photo. The heads don't come cheap, however. They sell for 648,000 yen, which is about $6,220 US dollars. You can purchase them online from the Japanese site Dwango. Via: Cat Time
