Ah, are those holograms?

I can't really tell but I'm going to assume they just project images onto glass.
This has been around for ages but still looks cool. Now to add something new they sometimes use several projectors to get different angels.
Sadly they have to be onto glass, take loads of projects to get 3d-ish and aren't so great. But still, they're kind of epic. They use them in the live Miku concerts (I think).

But seriously, did I miss something? Have holograms been here? Has this been public fact? When did we get actually working holograms? How can I get one!?
Since Musion Eyeliner, basically.

Same thing they used in the Gorillaz live performance with Madonna, IIRC.

How do you have what is basically a voice synthesizer perform in a concert? Let alone as the main attraction?

You can't seriously tell me that grown men are Miku fans for the music alone.

Also, I've never been a huge fan. I can understand a lot of stuff, like chiptunes, but I don't think I'll ever really understand the vocaloid fanbase.

edit: or, at that, any kind of moe.

Oh Grown men you say. I see what you mean. I haven't been to the concerts I've just seen a few vids on youtube. But the music is good so yeah.

Have you heard some vocaloids lately?
My sister played some songs on the computer and asked me to guess which ones I thought were the vocaloids.  I got the results backwards.

I'd take vocaloids over the shit we're getting lately any day.

Yeah. I don't get the appeal. It's just not my thing. Actually, let me rephrase.
There's a lot of things that aren't appealing to me, but I can understand why someone might enjoy them. And then there's things that I can't understand where the appeal comes from. Vocaloid falls into the latter category, for me anyways. I suppose it could be a matter of taste, and when it comes to music taste is very widely varied.

And I think anyone who believes Rebecca Black is a legitimate, serious musician is completely missing the point.
