If you wanted to make the trip to Hatsune Miku’s live performance at last night’s event at B.I.G. Carnival in Shanghai, but couldn’t quite make it, the recording is officially available via LETV!

We’d also like to apologize for a misreport by the B.I.G. event staff: Instead of featuring “at least 7 songs in Chinese”, Hatsune Miku performed 7 Japanese songs, and 1 Chinese song. It was the first live use of her V4 Chinese voice bank.

Check out the press release image gallery and the video from the player below, or click this link if the player doesn’t load: http://www.le.com/ptv/vplay/28990354.html

This Snow Miku themed PC mod has to be the coolest Miku PC mod we’ve seen! Currently on display at the Tsukumo Personal Computer head office in Akihabara, the PC is sadly not for sale, but it’s available for anyone to enjoy looking at.

The mod was created by Fabio, who you may remember as the modder behind the Hatsune Miku Core P5 mod in 2015. The mod adopts a Snow Miku-like blue and white color scheme on everything from the PSU, case, and even the liquid cooling. The side acrylic panel is engraved with official Snow Miku art by KEI.
