American singer Ne-Yo helds a fan meeting event in Japanese virtual world AmebaPigg!

It was a very important event for the Japanese virtual world business! American singer Ne-Yo held a fan meeting event in Japanese virtual world "AmebaPigg" on October 28th (Japan time). It was the first time that an overseas artist logged in to the Japanese virtual world!

You can see Real Ne-Yo operating his avatar on Ustream.

These are screenshot of InWorld of the event day.

More than 800 users were able to enter the event area.

Welcome Ne-Yo!!



Ne-Yo is known as a Japanophile. Especially, he likes Japanese Manga, Anime and fashion. He said that "I like DORAGON BALL. VEGETA IS KING!!".



This event was a very short. But, it was a very important. Usually, Japanese virtual world does not invite overseas artist. Because there is the language barrier. But, AmebaPigg's Dev. CyberAgent got over it.

I wish that a lot of overseas artists visit AmebaPigg from now on. And I wish that a lot of Japanese artists visit AmebaPico(AmebaPigg English Ver.), too.

There is no border in the virtual world.

AR Cheburashka in Inokashira Park

Russian character “Cheburashka[J]” is very popular in Japan. A new movie[J] is shown on December 18th.  Then, Augmented Reality company Tonchidot executed the collaboration campaign by using Sekaicamera.

Sekaicamera users were able to see 3DCG of Cheburashka by using Sekaicamera in Inokashira-Park(Kichijoji, Tokyo).

You can take very interesting photos with Cheburashka overlaying the scenery of the real world.

You can change the size of the Cheburashka’s 3DCG

But, it was a shame that the campaign only ran for three days (October 9th-11th).  It was too short! I wish that it continues until the movie’s release date.

By the way, I began to write the article in ASIAJIN. You can see daytime AR Cheburashka's photos here. Please check it!
