    Hatsune Miku

    To date, her hit song – World is Mine – has received more than 16 million hits on YouTube. She has appeared in a TV commercial for Toyota, which aired in the US. She is the star of her very own video game – Project DIVA and her concerts are often sold out. It’s hard to think of her as anything but human, but the hugely popular Hatsune Miku is a virtual creation, and very unlike you and me. The face of Vocaloid 2, a singing synthesizer application first developed by Yamaha, Miku is a virtual pop star with a fan base that can rival Justin Bieber’s Beliebers. Her creators, Crypton Future Media, explain the inspiration behind her birth, and what the future holds for virtual stars like Miku.

  • Pilot's Perspective

    The 10 Memory Items
