Remember the Hologram Communication Robot Gatebox (Developed by Vinclu Inc.) we previously introduced here on Otakumode News? Well we’ve got new news to share: A tech demo of Gatebox Home Live feat. Hatsune Miku is coming to Makuhari Messe!
The Gatebox concept videos we published in the past went viral even on our Facebook, creating a huge reaction among more than 1.5 million viewers. For those who have never heard of Gatebox before, take a moment and check out the concept videos and the previous articles below!
Gatebox Home Live feat. Hatsune Miku is special content created for the Gatebox tech demo in collaboration with Hatsune Miku. It will be available to demo for a limited time from Sept. 9–11 at the Makuhari Messe International Exhibition Hall during Magical Mirai 2016.
The concept videos released to date show character Hikari Azuma as the Gatebox’s hologram, but this time they’ve used their hologram technology to create a device where users can enjoy performances from Hatsune Miku at home. There’s a lot still shrouded in mystery about the Gatebox, so there’s no doubt that this tech demo will be a valuable chance to uncover some of it for yourself. This will also be the first chance for the general public to get hands on with the Gatebox, so if you’re in Japan make sure to get to Makuhari Messe to not miss this chance!
