This is all well and good, but I think the real question is this:

Is anyone else getting creepy deja vu thoughts of William Gibson's Idoru right now... ?

True volumetric 3D projection is not quite here yet; we've got some rudimentary systems, but nothing that looks as good as this "fake." Still, with the lighting and all, it looks quite good.

Indeed, at first on Twitter he criticized it for being too anime-ish, but changed his mind after seeing her in action:

Quote:
"Hatsune Miku is clearly a more complex phenomenon than I initially assumed. Requires further study."
When Miku went public, that book was the first thought in my mind (as I own a copy). Yet however, one of my friends claimed that Sharon Apple (Macross Plus) was the first to introduce the 'virtual idol' concept, which in turn influenced Gibson's novel.

Well with this "Fake" I can come up with very interesting visual effect with a large enough screen.
For example hang a large screen from the roof with a 45 degree incline and then project an image on it and you could have a virtual 3D performer floating in mid air or just focus a bust-up image and you have something that popped out from Macross Frontier.
With enough budge it will certainly raise the bars for on stage live performance.

By the way is Hatsune Miku's live stage considered as "lip sync"?

No amount of anime stuff is willing me to go out and buy a car. All these cars are the same they got a lot of stuff and get shitty gas mileage. But there are some idiots out there willing to buy a car just because of some anime so be it.

But maybe there will be some Miku t-shirts at Walmart or Target soon or not

But I wouldnt mind seeing a Miku concert

It's not that people buy a car just because Miku is in the commercial. People buy the car because they need a car--the advertisement is just subtle suggestion. Because it has Miku in it, it's a novelty, it's weird and silly and it makes you think about it and talk about it. Which puts that particular company's car in your (and other peoples') mind.

Nobody buys products purely because of the advertisement; but the ads ensure that the product is somewhere in your mind when you go to make a purchase.

The ad is problematic for us Americans primarily due to the bad, weirdly enunciated no-english voice-over. It makes the whole thing feel weird. Slap on a narration by a native English speaker and I bet you it won't feel odd anymore.

Well at least it's better than the Miku concert I saw which consist of a video being projected onto a huge screen on stage.

And it was laggy in between videos too.

Everyone with a little bit of stereoscopic vision will see this for what it is... a 45° projection (from the side anyway). The only way to trick you into thinking (at least when watching at it straight from the front/back) its a hologrom is an 90° +/- few degrees projection. And you can have the projection floating in mid air using the normal 90° degree incline. So, no matter how I look at it, what you said doesn't make much sense.

Hahaha! What? Seriously? Dude. Why haven't I seen this commercial before? Hyping the car and the concert at the same time, nice. She doesn't blend well with the real world, does she? Poor Miku.

I must say, though, "The World Is Mine" is a catchy song. And if they ever do manage to have a hologram vocaloid concert, instead of just a somewhat-transparent-screen one, I'd go see it.

3D anime girls singing to absolutely enthusiastic crowds, all using synthesized voices?

It's the end of human music artistry!

One thing is clear though, the owner doesn't drive the car very often/ever. Maybe the chassis suspension is just overtuned (too low to drive), or its because of the motive or whatever... anyway, the breaking disks tell me a story of despair (they want to be used sometimes, not just rusting away).

That was my first thought when I first saw that "hologram".

Now we only need someone who wants to marry a virtual char.... oh wait...

Sharon Apple however was a "fake".
The authors of that anime wanted to show that no matter how high the technology advances a mere machine will never be able to touch the hearts of people if it doesn't possess emotions herself. The same concept was shown on "Key the metal idol" of the same year.

The volcaloid phenomenon proved them wrong, at least partially, with a technoglogy by far inferior.

I'm a few days late, but this is definitely worth laughing at. There's plenty of social stigma associated with anime otakus in the west, at least in the US.
