She is one pop star who will never be confronted with bad plastic surgery, rehabs, and scandals.
Meet Hatsune Miku, the latest J-Pop sensation. Miku started as just a voice in Yamaha’s Vocaloid synthesizing technology developed by Crypton Future Media. The consumer software has gained so much popularity since its release in August 2007 that Miku was able to hold her first concert in March this year in Tokyo – in the form of a dynamic hologram. Thousands of enthusiastic fans came out and sang along to the digital vocalist.
Unlike the Gorillaz 2005 MTV Awards performance, this holographic animation was 3-dimensional, as opposed to being a back screen projection.
With this holographic technology on the rise, I wouldn’t be surprised if a holographic broadway show is on its way, and I just can’t wait to see it.
