The sound of future, this is what we’ve been watching in movies for years, and it’s not near anymore, it’s there, alive right this moment. Miku Hatsune is a singing synthesizer application, it uses a Vocaloid synthesizing technology developed by Yamaha Corporation. Her voice is sampled from Japanese voice actress Saki Fujita.

It reminded me of a movie for Al Pacino called S1m0ne, When I first saw that I said this gonna be way far from us, technology isn’t that advanced to adapt hologram, and look where we are now…!

It’s a long story to write and talk about, and it’s going to take a long article to include everything, so if you want to know more about it, read these references in this order:

Warner Bros offered Zac Efron a leading role in the anticipated live action remake of the anime Akira. The main plot took place in Japan, but Warner Bros wanted to shoot in USA, ruined Manhattan. No worries, Zac will keep the leading character’s name Kaneda (despite he’s blond, and his Americanized look).

This is how to ruin a classic!
