A collaborative live performance “Gatebox Home Live feat. Hatsune Miku” has been announced for Magical Mirai 2016 featuring the Gatebox technology by vinclu Inc. The technology utilizes video projection technologies and various sensors to bring out an in-dept virtual character in a cylindrical case.

Gatebox is the World First Holographic Communication Robot that allows you to live with your Loved One. The holographic projection technology brings the digital characters to communicate with you.

If you’re attending this year’s Hatsune Miku Magical Mirai in Japan this September like we are, you may have observed that the Japanese version of the site has received many updates, but the other languages have been neglected. One of these missing important details is an English layout map of the Makuhari Messe International Exhibition Hall.

A recent tweet from @Kowhey_Panzer39 fixes this problem, thank you very much! Click the image below for the full size.
