japanese 3d hologram [Video + Poll] Carson Daly: Japans Surprising Popstar

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Hatsune Miku[/lastfm] has the #1 song in Japan.  She’s selling out stadiums for her concert tour. The singer is even on Facebook.  But what’s the most interesting thing about Miku? She’s not even human!

No, we’re not joking with you! [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Hatsune Miku[/lastfm] is a 3-D hologram popstar voiced by several actors.  Engineers run their voices through Yamaha Corp.’s Vocaloid software to create a unique synthesized sound. 

What’s even more cool? Users can purchase her avatar and program Miku to perform any song they want. 

It all seems a little strange, but check out this video from her tour!

Are you a fan of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Hatsune Miku[/lastfm] or is this just a little too out of this world for you? Vote in our poll!
