Quoted from MAL:

According to IT Media, Tokyu Railway and National Institute of Informatics will carry out a PR experiment of Augmented Reality (AR) tied-up with Dennou Coil and Doraemon. They will plant “Meta Bug pin” around Shibuya station and users look for them by iPhone application. If you collect all the Meta Bugs, you can exchange it with a meal ticket.

The project is a part of Japan Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI)’s “e-space Demonstration Project”.

According to Sankei newspaper, METI collaborated with VOCALOID Hatsune Miku to promote the recycling campaign of mobile phones.
