We have met the future and it is a tinny-voiced giant green hologram performing at sold-out concerts in Japan. Crypton Future Media has launched a pop tour of holographic singing sensation Hatsune Miku, backed by a band of real human beings, notes the Los Angeles Times. The pig-tailed child-vamp is an anime creation using Yamaha's Vocaloid software, which presents songs in synthesized voices. Even better than other concert stars, this avatar can be purchased and will march to any tune you choose. For more on "Vocaloidism," click here.
