To make a star by world class standards, it takes years of training as much as a crew of managers to handle the emerging sensation. Is there a way to streamline this process? What’s the future of our next pop icon?

The HRPC-4 is a prototype developed by Japan’s National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology.
