Rohto’s Digi-Eye booth at the recent Niconico Chokaigi event was a large one, and it attracted many viewers due it’s unique large-scale virtual reality attraction featuring Hatsune Miku and Oculus Rift. Titled “Hatsune Miku VR LIVE -ALIVE-“, the event was announced as the largest-of-it’s-kind virtual reality gathering, which allowed 10 simultaneous viewers.

The largely popular Japanese video blog channel “KazuChannel” has shared his experience of the VR event on YouTube.

Teased at the end of the video was a special Rohto Digi-Eye version of the new HACOSCO VR Headset, a simple cardboard-based headset that allows you to turn most smartphones into a virtual reality device. The headset makes use of its own free app for Android and iOS, and even features its own mobile version of “Hatsune Miku VR LIVE -ALIVE-“!

The headset itself is available from Amazon Japan and various book stores in Japan for 1000 Yen ($8.30 USD), so acquiring the headset from overseas may be somewhat difficult. A video showing how to assemble and use your HACOSCO VR headset is available below. Via MikuStream

It’s not often you see a Hatsune Miku model for MikuMikuDance that is so high quality, you’d think it was official. The 3D modeler Digtrevx from Deviantart has created an MMD model based on Racing Miku 2015 that impressively matches what we’ve seen from official illustrations and figures.

The first official demo video was uploaded only yesterday, and today the model is now available for free download. If you plan to use the model, please kindly read the creator’s terms of use. Thanks! You can enjoy the demo video below, featuring the song Decorator by kz.livetune.

Nendoroid Sakura Mikudayo Preorders Open, Original Mikudayo Re-released

Filed under: Figures,Hatsune Miku,Merchandise,Miku News — Written by jrharbort on Wednesday, April 29th, 2015 @ 9:21 pm


 
What started out as just a prank is now a reality: Nendoroid Sakura Mikudayo is up for preorder and ready to invade your collection (and eventually the world). Preoders are available starting today until June 3rd at 9:00 PM JST.

“Originally created as an April Fools joke in 2013, the cherry blossomed themed version of Mikudayo, ‘Sakura Mikudayo’ is now actually being released! Her strangely thin twin-tails have been covered in cherry blossom patterns for a cuter look than ever before!
Optional parts include three-color ‘hanami dango’ for enjoying the cherry blossoms, as well as Mikudayo’s favorite food – tuna sushi! The incredible detail of the sushi that shares a pink color with the cherry blossoms has Mikudayo most pleased! Be sure to add the late-blooming Sakura Mikudayo to your collection!”

As a character with a fixed (and somewhat creepy) expression, there are no additional faceplates, but you do get a few food accessories for her to enjoy (and hopefully spare devouring your soul). An exclusive bonus item is available only to those that buy from GSC’s online store: A pop candy (cherry flavor color). Alternate online stores also have the figure available, but without the bonus.

Lastly, the original Mikudayo nendoroid is also back up for grabs, with the same end date for preorders. If you don’t yet have the original, ordering both together is a great way to save on shipping (ordering both also makes you insane for wanting two monsters in your home). Both figures are expected to ship August 2015.
