Holographic Pop Star Goes on Tour in Japan

Holographic Pop Star Goes on Tour in Japan

Japanese media company creates an avatar that plays for live audiences.

Dory Carr-Harris, PSFK

We’ve all been noticing the increasing plasticity of pop stars, whether you’re thinking of Lady Gaga or Katy Perry, it’s hard to deny that a certain infusion of the manufactured is part of the equation for success these days. Well, now Japan’s Crypton Future Media has created a literal holographic pop star, Hatsune Miku.

Hatsune began as a fictional character in Vocaloid, a voice-synth software that allows users to create songs for fictional characters to sing, but this latest innovation has brought Hatsune to “life” and sent this J-pop avatar on tour to play for live audiences.
