Now YouTube just needs to use its cat-tracking technology to allow me to automatically follow each individual kitten. I can only keep up so much by slowing down the video to 0.25x speed.

I think I've finally found a reason to buy a VR headset.

It's not so much the teeny faces as the SUDDEN GIANT CAT FACES when they look right at the camera, IYAM.

My friend suggested that all we need now is a web-controlled laser pointer.

Keep the sound off to avoid hearing the heart-rending cries of tiny doggies.

That looks great in Chrome but if you don't have 360 view, then watching it may give you a headache.

They keep looking in the camera as if they are trying to locate the source of a million squees..

I can confirm that this is a most delightful amusement when viewed via a Google Cardboard compatible phone-VR-holder.

It's not fully "like being there" as there is no depth information - but when combined with a swivel chair and the freedom to spin round to track any particular kitten, it's certainly an adorable novelty.

I am stopping for an eye-break before I dive back in to track the ginger one.

OK, I've tracked all of them now. Even with a Cardboard viewer it's really hard to keep any given cat in view the whole time when they leap over the top of you.

The sense of scale when they're sniffing right at the camera is amazing - these big huge tiny little fluffy kittenses towering over me.

Spinning round on a chair too much inside a 360 video can definitely lead to motion sickness though.

keep the sound off period; that music put me off the video. The 'whimsy' was just too much.
