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]

    Hatsune Miku is actually a syntesizing software that you can buy that Crypton created. Anyone can buy it and synthesize lyrics for using Mikus voice.

    Crypton doesn’t do anything with songs that are popular. They’re just a tech company.
    The people making the songs own all rights to it and can do whatever they want with it, including selling it.
    What happens for the concerts is just that Crypton ask the creators of popular songs if they would want it to be featured in the concert, which then they agree to or not.
