In case you ever wondered if diva pop stars are “for real”, this one certainly isn’t. At least, not in the sense that Britney Spears and Beyonce are real.
No, Hatsune Miku is a hologram. She (or should I say it) is created by Japan’s Crypton Future Media, and she is essentially a 3D avatar come to life for the stage. You can watch the video after the jump.
In all honesty, I didn’t think we had technology like this now. I don’t see anyone trying to touch Hatsune Miku, and having their hand pass through them.
You know what this reminds me of? Jem. Yes, that eighties toy that was also a cartoon. If I remember her backstory correctly, the reason why she was truly outrageous, was because she was a hologram.
Actually, Jem was sort of a holographic cover for Jerrica Benton, which was her alter go. Yes, she had a computer named Synergy that could make a hologram of anything. In fact, her backup band was named the Holograms.
Can you ever believe that a cartoon with such a crazy premise? However, the video below shows a bunch of people screaming at a hologram. So which is weirder? Life or art?
