Hatsune Miku Vocaloid
Hatsune Miku - Teenage Diva
Hatsune Miku, the latest teenage pop sensation is a vocaloid, a singing synthesizer. What makes her stand out above all the rest of celebrities is that she is a 3-D computer animation. You got it! She is not a real person, only the product of software developers.
This teenage diva from cyberspace has become one of the hottest stars on the J-pop scene. ( Japan's pop scene )
Who Is Hatsune Miku?
First vocaloid idol
Hatsune Miku is a sixteen year old girl with ankle-length aqua-colored pigtails, 158cm (5 ft 2in) tall and weighs 42 kg. Her name is a fusion of the Japanese words Hatsu meaning (first), Ne(sound) and Miku (future) thus the meaning of her name "the first sound from the future".
She is the creation of Crypton Future Media in August 2007 and is the most well known vocaloid (I will explain this further ) and the first pop idol in the music scene. Her voice was created by sampling the voice of Japanese voice actress, Saki Fujita.
