“Help us Hatsune Miku. You’re our only hope.”

For lots of reasons I can’t believe this is for real. But it is for real and it’s really awesome.

And for those of you who think that such advanced technology is wasted on the world of Japanese pop culture, think about how this *legitimately* funds technology development so that such technology can find its way into less high margin markets such as health care and hologram-chatting with grandkids. The entire “green tech” industry could learn from this approach: the right approach, the approach that doesn’t involve billions of wasted taxpayer dollars.
