The story and the making of 3D Hatsune Miku

Thousands of Japanese people turn out to see concerts featuring Vocaloid software, a synthesized vocals application from Sony which allows users to type in text and convert the speech to song. It’s like text-to-speech software with a musical element.

To promote the software, Sony created some anime-style cartoon singers like “Hatsune Miku” to personify the different singing voices available from Vocaloid. These girls became so popular that they were integrated into the live concerts bands, and the result looks like this.

“初音未來”不但外表可愛迷人、穿著時尚,歌聲更是美妙絕倫,大量問鼎音樂排行榜榜首的單曲都是她的手筆。現在的她已經成為日本最新並且人氣最旺的流行明星。與日本其他歌星有所不同的是,“初音未來”並不是一個有血有肉的人,而只是一個全息影像。

“初音未來”的出現立即在日本歌壇掀起一場風暴,她的音樂會場場爆滿,無數崇拜她的歌迷涌入音樂會,聆聽她的美妙歌聲,他們的尖叫聲幾乎可以將棚頂掀翻。進軍歌壇後,“初音未來”演唱了一系列熱門歌曲,有關其日本巡演的視頻正像雨後春筍般出現。整個過程讓人不免聯想到科幻影片中的景象。

“初音未來”是一個數字化身,由日本科技公司“Crypton未來媒體”打造。將她請回家之後,消費者可以通過編程,讓“初音未來”在電腦上演唱任何歌曲。這位虛擬歌星只有16歲,身高5英尺2英寸(約合1.57米),對於她的性格,設計者並沒有進行太多設定。Crypton利用錄製的其他歌星的聲音並通過雅馬哈的Vocaloid軟體創造出“初音未來”演唱的歌曲。“初音未來”的嗓音採用著名女歌手藤田咲的聲音樣本打造,樣本由單一的日語發音構成,串在一起形成完整的語句。

她的歌曲和形象在日本取得巨大成功,現正在日本舉行巡迴演唱會。演唱會場場爆滿,數千歌迷揮舞著熒光棒為他們的偶像搖旗吶喊,不時爆發出一陣陣尖聲叫,就好像“初音未來”是一位在現實生活中真實存在的歌星一樣。全息顯示技術以這種一種方式被應用於舞臺這還是第一次。舞臺上的“初音未來”能夠像真人一樣移動。

在2005年和2006年MTV獎頒獎晚會上,由達蒙·阿爾巴恩擔任主唱的樂隊Gorillaz也曾使用投射的全息影像,但這些影象只是投射在身後的大螢幕上,而不是完全以3D形式出現。現在的“初音未來”已擁有一個歌迷俱樂部,Facebook上還出現了她的唱片公司。在日本一系列頗受歡迎的動畫片中,觀眾也曾無數次看到她的形象。

2009年,“初音未來”舉行了她的第一場現場演唱會,還曾前往新加坡巡演。2010年3月,在一次全國性請願活動之後,蝕刻有“初音未來”形象的金屬盤登上日本“拂曉”號飛船併發射升空。當時,共有超過1.4萬人在請願書上簽名,要求使用“初音未來”的形象。





5 steps to use Facebook to promote your business online

12 02 2010

Facebook is the no.1 social network website in the world. Many Malaysian are now using Facebook daily to keep in touch with their friends and families members. sometime, I saw some of the office staffs in my clients’ office are “playing” Facebook during office working hours too.   :))

If you are a businessman, can you smell the “money” now?

No more stupid excuses that you are not good in computer or don’t understand what is the Internet.

Remember 10 years ago when some people starting to use handphone / mobile phone  ? A lot of traditional businessmen are teasing those who using the expensive toys to communicate with clients. They said it is cheaper to use the fixed line (telephone) to call.

What happen to these group of smart traditional businessmen now? They are now holding an expensive toys such as Blackberry, Nokia Communicator or maybe iPhone. But not sure they know how to use it or not. Probably just to show off to others. Because they realized if they don’t use it or don’t have one of these luxury toys, they will be categorized as cavemen or outdated group of people in the society.

Nowadays, you must learn how to do business on the NET. Learn from the spider. Catch all your “food” on the net/web. Waiting for the victim to come to your dinner table…..

Is it so easy?

Nope. Can you expect to see the customers non-stop walking into your shop if you open a shop in a good location?

There are many ways to promote your business to others. Facebook is just one of them.
