Video: Virtual Idol Hatsune Miku Pops Up As Hologram On 3D Table-Top Display

Do you remember the fvision, the amazing 3D tabletop display that we’ve shown you last year? Thanks to 96 projectors arranged in a circle, the device produces 3D images that multiple viewers can see from different angles – no glass case, 3D glasses or other extra equipment needed. And now the NICT, Japan’s National Institute of Information and Communications Technology, found a way to showcase their technology in a way that’s more appealing to the general public.

Instead of displaying a cute yellow baby duck like last year, the NICT decided to use their fvision to produce a moving 3D hologram of Hatsune Miku, Japan’s most famous “virtual idol”. The hologram is just 5cm high, but it’s actually very cool.
