After Gatebox, creators of the virtual home robot projection box, teased a Hatsune Miku themed demo at last year’s Magical Mirai, they now seem determined to proceed with the idea of creating a proper version of the box with Hatsune Miku, this time for the consumer market! The announcement comes from an update to Gatebox’s website. Titled the “Living with Hatsune Miku” project, it announces a March 9th, 2018 release. Further details are expected to arrive at a later date.
Gatebox plans yet another preview for this year’s Magical Mirai, hopefully with changes to show off improved interaction compared to last year’s demo. If you wish to try the demo, you must fill out the application located about 3/4 the way down the official page: http://gatebox.ai/livingwithproject/
Above is Gatebox’s official announcement video of the event. It’s not much, but we should learn more later. The LAT Miku model may be a placeholder, and not the finalized model choice. Pricing info is also still TBA, but might end up the same as the original Gatebox’s price of 298,000 Yen.
