Japan’s 3D Hologram Rock Star Hatsune Miku in HD!

November 12, 2010

The quality of this holographic projection of virtual J-Pop star Hatsune Miku at “her” “live” concert is amazing!

Everyone gets a little obsessed with famous musicians now and then, but things get really weird when the famous musician is actually just a piece of software. 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 with Hatsune Miku as she appears via a ‘3D hologram’ on stage in the videos below. …  This girl, er…program?, can really rock.

The mid-range shots of the crowd with Miku in the background also show how great her ‘hologram’ appears live on stage. Close-ups do reveal a bit of pixelation, but if I was in the crowd I don’t think I would have noticed this. Actually, I don’t think I would have noticed anything after Miku started dressing like a cat-girl. (Watch the 3rd video…Seriously, WTF?) The high definition quality only goes to show that Hatsune Miku, and other virtual rockers on the rise, can hold their own against their real-world counterparts.
