So you may or may not know that I like to tinker in video production, and when I’m not filming Stu, Tiffany, and Jimbo’s antics for 96-7 KCAL Rocks, I like to see what the rest of the video world is up to. Today I stumbled onto this…
First, turn down your volume all the way because the music is truly HORRIFIC Japanese pop.
That’s a real live audience at a real concert for Japanese pop sensation Hatsune Miku. Here’s the kicker… that chick everyone is going crazy over is a 3 dimensional hologram projected onto glass. That’s not even a real person singing. It’s a Yamaha Vocaloid voice synthesizer. We’re witnessing the birth of the latest in audio and video projection technology, and I’m pretty sure if you translate the lyrics, they say “Suck on THAT, James Cameron!” Thank goodness they are using this for crappy anime entertainment (it’s still better than Justin Bieber), because if the Japanese ever decide to take over the galaxy, I’m pretty sure this proves that they could do it.
