Normally this type of girl isn’t really my cup of tea, too doll-like. But this one caught my attention. Eguchi Aimi, one of the members from a popular J-POP group AKB48 has drawn quite a lot of attention from all over the world not just within Japan. Everyone, including me, my friends and my co workers were surprised when we found out she was actually just another computer generated or “synthetic” person. Aimi (that’s her first name, Asians usually put their last names first) is a combination of six of her fellow members (one facial part from each of them).
Watch this youtube video and you will know what I mean.
I’ve also found a Japanese site that has more at glico that has more infomation about her. And for those who are too lazy navigate through the site and/or do not understand Japanese. She is born in 1995, Feburary 11th, 152cm tall, blood type O and interest is singing (well this one is no brainer). She and her 6 fellow members star in one of glico’s snack commercial as shown in the video above.
Or watch the actual commercial:
The reason why I said I’m not interested in doll-like girls and yet here I am talking about one is the fact that I’m extremely amazed by CG technologies these days and also the Japanese who never cease to amaze me with their crazy things. This is one of them, its so realistic that its almost freaky. I will for sure pay attention to her and her up coming activities, perhaps some day she will turn into a real idol?
For those looking for wallpapers / videos I’ve extracted the links from the glico site (not going to host them on my server just incase of copy right issue):
[update] Just found a slideshow on youtube with more super realistic images of Aimi
