Thanks for sharing that video. It gives me a much better understanding of the Hatsune Miku culture. Japanese companies like Ricoh could have some edge with anime, potentially leveraging augmented reality and the anime characters. I’m now curious to see if Hatsune Miku will move inside of the 360 sphere or if she will be a static image.
BTW, I took my daughter to Harajuku a couple of months ago and I got a small taste for the character culture of Japan. I think we went on a Sunday and it was incredible.
She’s building some “kawaii” style games this summer. I’ll ask her if she’s interested in this style of art as well. I’ll ask her if she knows about Hatsune Miku, possibly build her own game.
I found these Hatsune Miku AR videos:
Toyota Commercials (selling cars)
Digital Music Concert Debut in Los Angeles (English news clip)
