Hong Kong has jumped early on the bandwagon of celebration. Harbor City, a shopping mall in Hong Kong, is hosting the “100 Years Before the Birth of Doraemon” exhibition.
Outside Harbor City, 100 different Doraemon figures are lined up in neat rows. Inspired by Doraemon’s magical gadgets, a group of designers around the world have created and designed 30 original gadgets.
The robotic cat from the future, created by Japanese manga artist Fujiko F. Fujio, needs no introduction. The series has been widely popular since its debut in the late 1960s and its popularity has expanded worldwide over the past two decades.
