Hello, I would like to formally warn everyone, I am indulging in some extreme s/f nerdery. With that out of the way, here is the story:
Recently I found myself on the ol’ youbietubie, and I found myself watching a holographic entertainer named Hatsune Miku. If you are concerned with the physical characteristics, she is a 16 year old, 5’2″, 93 lbs. girl with a vocal range of A3~E5. Her humble beginnings were as some run-of-the-mill singing software that you could write music for, and she would perform. She has exploded. Watch this video as thousands of fans are singing her music and enjoying her show:
(I can’t figure out how to embed the video, so follow this jump !)
This is the beginning of the end. If you are Isaac Asimov, or at least are in the same camp, perhaps you won’t be concerned with the robot takeover. I, however, am concerned that she is not really my style. I at least like to enjoy myself as the robocolypse is taking place. I can’t wait for there to be a North American model!
