Holographic character Hatsune Miku performs at sold out concert

In news that could make human musicians sweat a bit, a hologram is having great success on stage in Japan. For those not in the know, the software Vocaloid allows users to create synthetic singing voices for music tracks. Someone took this to the next level by having a holographic avatar of the fictional singer Hatsune Miku perform live on stage. Whether you find this creepy or enticing, the result is undoubtedly fascinating.



And for those possibly aroused by the above video, again in Japan we had the recent news that holograms you can touch are becoming a possible reality. At the University of Tokyo, researchers devised some clever methodology that can allow one to feel the images being displayed.

  3. Amazing ! Loved the concert, if anyone is watching it, make sure to switch to 720p or higher to really enjoy it, Gorlotch, you can do it yourself to be set to default when playing.

  10. that's fascinating on one hand but on the other hand there are thousands of people who love something that doesn't even exist, great for the music industry.. there is no need in real humans anymore in the future
