Tupac was pretty cool but Japan’s had a hologram musician for years

Posted on April 19, 2012 by

Now that Hologram Tupac has become a legitimate musical act, we’re noticing hologram artists everywhere.

Take for instance, Hatsune Miku, Japan’s very own hologram pop star. Miku had 25,000 fans pay to see her at a recent concert. However, unlike Tupac, Miku is entirely fictional. The popstar, who has pig-tailed neon green hair and wears a schoolgirl outfit, is an avatar created by Crypton Future Media.

The fans actually create her songs and videos through collaborative websites. If an uploaded song goes viral, it might get picked up by Crypton and spiffed up before being rereleased by Miku. [Source]
