Check out this video of a avatar singing in concert in Japan.  This is not a dancer in a costume, nor is it an animatronic.  It's a 3D hologram in open space that looks more solid than the holograms in Star Wars.  Watch the avatar cross the stagelighting behind her, it passes through the image.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

This is creepy.

The singer belong in an anime or manga, not in real life! At the very least use a more realistic art style.

Damn Holograms!  Dey Terk Eur Jeerbs!!!  (At least we won't have to deal with prima donna pop stars anymore...)

USA technology is mostly weapons.  Japanese people use their technology and money for entertainment, not war.

I can't really see that it is a hologram (as in real 3D). Seems more like lasers shining on a flat semi-transparent surface. (I've seen these things already about 15 years ago, although much simpler). More 2D to me then 3D to me.

That's because the Japanese have been dependent upon the USA for defense since WWII, by design.  Germany for much of that time as well.  When you are prohibited by treaty from a military-industrial complex, other motives will spring up.  Don't assume that the state of things today is as result of a change in the nature of mankind, nor of particular nations.

Maybe it is because of the way it was recorded. The issue is that everyone sees it in 3D when they go over there. I remember this being post in Gizmodo.

What. The. Fuck.  I'm sending this to my uncle.  He's always liked Japanese music and culture.  Perhaps he can explain to me what just happened.

Righto.   Smiley  I wasn't implying any intents or reasons.  I was just making a factual statement.

Agreed, light needs something to reflect off, it doesn't just reflect off itself., There needs to be some sort of surface for it to reflect against, poerhaps it's a cylinder or cube and lasers driven by some very fancy algorithms or whatever. That's not to say it's not impressive though.

Personally, I despise manga and anime, the stupid big heads, the ridiculously large eyes, the whole grotesque cutesyness of it all, it's the low water mark of Japanese culture I blame the use of nuclear weapons. Sad

my attempt to learn about bitcoin was an unmitigated and disaster. who knew magic beans would turn out to be such a big fucking deal. my regret is the cost to others, which has shamed me.

There's a small example of this technique in the multimedia presentation that you see before you go up Sydney Tower. It's monochrome (like the Japanese avatar) and it seems to be an image projected from a CRT onto a sheet of flat glass. It's arranged so that there are no reflections on the glass and the glass is effectively invisible, yet somehow the projected image interacts with the glass and seems to emanate from that position in space. Perhaps the CRT emits ultra-violet and reacts with phosphors on the glass.

It's certainly not true holography, but it's a stunning visual effect.

Anime style is very diverse. Some are very realistic, and so on.
