Japan, You Cray-Cray: Japanese Go Nuts For Hatsune Miku, 3-D Holographic Musician
This is a video of a Hatsune Miku concert in Japan. Only thing is, Hatsune Miku isn't a real person. Or even a robot like you'd expect from Japan. Nope, she's a 3-D hologram. Pfft, Jem did it 20 years ago.
Hatsune Miku is a rising star in Japan and abroad, singing catchy J-pop that matches her blue-green hair. She's also a virtual avatar created by Crypton Media using Yamaha's Vocaloid voice synthesizer. That hasn't stopped her from amassing a legion of fans who really love her work. I mean really love it. Check out the crowd frantically waving glow-sticks and singing along...
THANKS A LOT, JAMES CAMERON! This is all your fault somehow, I know it. We don't even have real people entertaining us anymore, just a bunch of fake-ass people with blue titties and a bad case of pony-tail worms. No thanks! I'll take a talentless Britney Spears/Miley Cyrus/Katy Perry/Ke$ha over a 3-D hologram any day. Just kidding, all those chicks can go die. No skin off my wiener!
Hit the jump for three videos of the depressing future of music.
