DailyDirt: Beauty Is Only Pixel-Deep...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

We've pointed out Eguchi Aimi not too long ago -- she's the artificial member of the Japanese pop band AKB48. It looks like there can only be more computer-generated people on the way, so here are a few quick links on this uncanny trend. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    I noticed that Hatsune Miku is obviously lip-syncing.
    For shame!!

    Too bad it isn't a real customized Corolla and is just a ad campaign instead because that would of seriously tempted me.

    At least I did get to go out to Toyota sponsored live concert at Anime Expo, it was amazing.

    Max Headroom Was Not Computer-Generated

    Yes, that was a real human actor (Matt Frewer) wearing makeup.

    The American version was.

    "Later in the US version, they were actually generated by a Commodore Amiga computer."
