What is Miku Expo?
Miku Expo is a series of world tours organized by Crypton Future Media with the topic of Hatsune Miku. In order to mesmerize the audience, the performance includes Vocaloid songs and digital choreography of Miku dancing, projected onto glass screens. Hatsune Miku is a Vocaloid software. The virtual avatar is a 16-year-old girl with long and turquoise twin tails. The virtual idol has earlier performed on stage as an animated projection.
In laymen's terms, what makes Hatsune Miku special is that she is not a human singer but a virtual persona. A computer-generated voice and 3D graphics are used for her live performances on stage.
