Hatsune Miku

The Future is now. This Jpop star is a computer generated hologram.

It's using the peppers ghost illusion to appear right in front of a massive crowd of cheering fans.

It was created by Crypton Future Media using vocaloid technology to synthesize the voice of a real person (suspected to be Saki Fujita an anime voice actress).

She also has some great music videos.

I predict the US will have their own virtual pop star in less than 2 years. I would not be surprised if the same corporation created it.

(update) The Gorillaz are doing this already. (slaps forehead)
