Holographic Singer Selling Out Concerts in Japan (Video)

And you thought Autotune was bad. Looks like the future of pop music is in the computer-animated hands of holograms thanks to Crypton Future Media, a Japanese company that uses Vocaloid software to bring you Hatsune Mika, holographic idol.

The first installment in the Vocaloid2 Character Vocal Series (oh yes, there will be more), Hastune was released to the world in 2007 and has since begun selling out stadiums, playing to thousands and being supported by a legitimate backing band.

The three-dimensional pop star is a legitimate pop culture sensation – as you can see from the glow-stick waving crowd below and her 50,000 facebook fans. While many of today’s pop stars are highly manufactured anyway, Hatsune Mika offers a refreshingly honest personality. One that we’re pretty sure won’t end up in rehab.
