Do you believe that the newest rockstar in Japan is a hologram! Her name is 'Hatsune Miku'. She is a 3D animated hologram whose voice is power by a singing synthesizer application.
Miku has a long blue-green hair and likes to wear in pigtail. Her costume matches the school girl. She is a sining, digital avator created by the Japanese technology firm, Crypton Future Media that consumers can purchase and then program to perform any song on a computer.
She is a Vocaloid's voice syntesizer (a software that generates sounding sining by simply typing in the lyrics and music notes) The vocaloidism blog has more details about the software.
She performed her first 'live' concert in 2009 and has also traveled to Singapore on tour.
Hatsune Miku is a rising star in japan and across East asia. A few months ago, a 3D projection of Miku pranced around several stadium stages as part of a concert tour. Around 25,000 fans who fill stadium to watch her don't care that she isn't flesh and blood. Clazed fans have been buying all the tickets to her live concerts, which are presented with a 3D holographic technology.
The video of Hatsune Miku's live concert in Japan is proof of how far technology has come.
The performances are from the recently released Blu-Ray/DVD collection of Hatsune Miku's latest sold out concert in Japan : 39 Giving Day.
