Impressive Tech Demo Allows You To Take a Walk With Hatsune Miku, Thanks to Augmented Reality Tech
While still a work in progress, a male user from nicovideo (sort of like Japan's Youtube) has combined the power of the Kinect-like Asus Xtion and Wrap920 VR Glasses in order to bring Hatsune Miku to "virtual life" in front of you. In the video below, he takes Japan's favorite Vocaloid singer out for a walk in the park, and then shows how you can interact with her virtual being (petting her head, smacking her head, and moving her tie) by moving your hands towards her. Link for full story can be found below the video:

Quite impressive stuff, to be honest. What are your thoughts and how would you use such technology?
