Japan has always been a country to welcome new technology with open arms, and holographic, computer-generated, pop-star, Hatsune Miku, is no exception. Her voice was created using the Vocaloid 2 Speech Synthesis Engine from Yamaha using samples from voice actress, Saki Fujita. Miku’s album EXIT TUNES PRESENTS Vocalogenesis feat. Hatsune Miku was the first vocaloid singer to top the weekly album sales charts in Japan back in 2010.
All of the concerts are conducted with a holographic image and it’s pretty amazing how far holographic technology has come.
