Hatsune Miku – Holographic Pop Star?

Japan –

Hatsune Miku is one of the biggest pop stars in all of Japan. She’s also a virtual avatar created by Crypton Media using Yamaha’s Vocaloid voice synthesizer. That right. You heard what I said – She’s a hologram!

Check out this live concert performance of “Promise”. A track that only a robot could love. Hypnotic and annoying all rolled into one. Turn DOWN your speakers if you have any consideration for those around you. But open your eyes to the future of “live” music (unfortunately).

Oh Japan, is there nothing that you can’t do?

GAME – Explore the “Guest house”

Tokyo, Japan

Mix up some Egyptian hieroglyphics, a space station, some unusual machinery, a suspended animation pod, and some chilled out music, and you get a point’n’click game called Guest House. How you arrive at that name, from that mix, is anyone’s guess, but that doesn’t stop this being a great game both visually and puzzle-wise. It is reminiscent of Futurama.

We’re not sure exactly how you “win” this game, however, we did spend a long time exploring this well rendered world. If you figure it out – give us a shout.
